For thus says the LORD of hosts: "As I purposed to do evil to you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, and I did not relent, says the LORD of hosts,
so again have I purposed in these days to do good to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah; fear not.
These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another, render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace,
do not devise evil in your hearts against one another, and love no false oath, for all these things I hate, says the LORD."
And the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying,
"Thus says the LORD of hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah seasons of joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love truth and peace.
"Thus says the LORD of hosts: Peoples shall yet come, even the inhabitants of many cities;
the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, 'Let us go at once to entreat the favor of the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts; I am going.'
Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to entreat the favor of the LORD.
Thus says the LORD of hosts: In those days ten men from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, 'Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'"
