15“so now I have determined to do good again to Jerusalem and Judah. Do not be afraid.16These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts;17do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,” declares the LORD.18The word of the LORD Almighty came to me.19This 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.”20This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Many peoples and the inhabitants of many cities will yet come,21and 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.’22And many peoples and powerful nations will come to Jerusalem to seek the LORD Almighty and to entreat him.”23This is what the LORD Almighty says: “In those days ten people 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.’ ”
1The word of the LORD is against the land of Hadrak and will come to rest on Damascus— for the eyes of all people and all the tribes of Israel are on the LORD—2and on Hamath too, which borders on it, and on Tyre and Sidon, though they are very skillful.3Tyre has built herself a stronghold; she has heaped up silver like dust, and gold like the dirt of the streets.4But the Lord will take away her possessions and destroy her power on the sea, and she will be consumed by fire.
