Zechariah 7:1

And it came to pass, in the fourth year of King Darius,
&c.] Near two years after the foundation of the temple was laid, ( Haggai 2:10 Haggai 2:18 ) and near two years before it was finished, ( Ezra 6:15 ) when the work was going forward, and there was a great deal of reason to believe it would be completed: [that] the word of the Lord came unto Zechariah, in the fourth
[day] of the ninth month, [even] in Chisleu:
which answers to part of our October, and part of November.
