Zechariah 7:1-3 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

And in the fourth year of the reign of King Darius, the word of the Lord came to Zechariah on the fourth day of the ninth month, Chislev.

Now the people of Bethel had sent Sharezer and Regem-melech and their men to pray and entreat the favor of the Lord

And to speak to the priests of the house of the Lord of hosts and to the prophets, saying, [Now that I am returned from exile] should I weep in the fifth month, separating myself as I have done these so many years [in Babylon]?
