18 Then the word of the Lord of Hosts came to me: 18 Again the word of the LORD Almighty came to me.
19 "The Lord of Hosts says this: The fast of the fourth [month], the fast of the fifth, the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth will become times of joy, gladness, and cheerful festivals for the house of Judah. Therefore, love truth and peace." 19 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "The fasts of the fourth, fifth, seventh and tenth months will become joyful and glad occasions and happy festivals for Judah. Therefore love truth and peace."
20 The Lord of Hosts says this: "Peoples will yet come, the residents of many cities; 20 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Many peoples and the inhabitants of many cities will yet come,
21 the residents of one city will go to another, saying: Let's go at once to plead for the Lord's favor and to seek the Lord of Hosts. I am also going. 21 and the inhabitants of one city will go to another and say, 'Let us go at once to entreat the LORD and seek the LORD Almighty. I myself am going.'
22 Many peoples and strong nations will come to seek the Lord of Hosts in Jerusalem and to plead for the Lord's favor." 22 And many peoples and powerful nations will come to Jerusalem to seek the LORD Almighty and to entreat him."
23 The Lord of Hosts says this: "In those days, 10 men from nations of every language will grab the robe of a Jewish man tightly, urging: Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you." 23 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "In those days ten men from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, 'Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.'
