Zechariah 7:1-3 Darby Translation (DARBY)
7 And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of Jehovah came unto Zechariah on the fourth [day] of the ninth month, [even] in Chislev,
2 when Bethel had sent Sherezer and Regem-melech, and his men, to supplicate Jehovah,
3 [and] to speak unto the priests that were in the house of Jehovah of hosts, and to the prophets, saying, Should I weep in the fifth month, separating myself, as I have done now so many years?

Justice and Mercy, Not Fasting
