Chapter 7. Now in the fourth year of King Darius it Came to pass that the word of the Lord Came to Zechariah on the fourth day of The ninth month kislev When the people sent shariza with Regan Malik and his men to the house of God to Pray before the Lord And to ask the priests who were in the House of the Lord of hosts and the Prophets saying Should I weep in the fifth month and Fast as I have done for so many years Then the word of the Lord of hosts came To me saying Say to all the people of the land and to The priests When you fasted and mourned in the fifth And seventh months during those 70 years Did you really fast for me For me When you eat and when you drink do you Not eat and drink for yourselves Should you not have obeyed The Words Which the Lord proclaimed through the Former prophets when Jerusalem and the Cities around it were inhabited and Prosperous and the South and the lowland Were inhabited Foreign Then the word of the Lord came to Zechariah saying thus says the Lord of Hosts Execute True Justice

Show mercy and compassion everyone to His brother Do not oppress the widow or the Fatherless the alien or the poor Let none of you plan evil in his heart Against his brother But they refused to heed Shrugged their shoulders and stopped Their ears so that they could not hear Yes they made their hearts Like Flint Refusing to hear the law and the words Which the Lord of hosts had sent by his Spirit through the former Prophets Thus great woth came from The Lord of Hosts Therefore it happened that just as he Proclaimed and they would not hear So they called out and I would not Listen says the Lord of hosts But I scattered them with a whirlwind Among all the nations which they had not Known Thus the land became desolate after them So that no one passed through or Returned for they made the pleasant land Desolate
