Just as you have been a cursing among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you and you shall be a blessing. Do not be afraid, but let your hands be strong.
For thus says the Lord of hosts: Just as I purposed to bring disaster upon you, when your ancestors provoked me to wrath, and I did not relent, says the Lord of hosts,
so again I have purposed in these days to do good to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah; do not be afraid.
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 are things that I hate, says the Lord.
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 seasons of joy and gladness, and cheerful festivals for the house of Judah: therefore love truth and peace.
Thus says the Lord of hosts: Peoples shall yet come, the inhabitants of many cities;
the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, "Come, let us go to entreat the favor of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts; I myself 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 nations of every language shall take hold of a Jew, grasping his garment and saying, "Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."
