View In My Bible
1 On December 7 a of the fourth year of King Darius's reign, another message came to Zechariah from the LORD. 2 The people of Bethel had sent Sharezer and Regemmelech, b along with their men, to seek the LORD's favor. 3 They were to ask this question of the prophets and of the priests at the Temple of the LORD Almighty: "Should we continue to mourn and fast each summer on the anniversary of the Temple's destruction, c as we have done for so many years?" 4 The LORD Almighty sent me this message: 5 "Say to all your people and your priests, 'During those seventy years of exile, when you fasted and mourned in the summer and at the festival in early autumn, d was it really for me that you were fasting? 6 And even now in your holy festivals, you don't think about me but only of pleasing yourselves.
