38-7:1 And it came to pass1961 in the fourth702 year8141 of king4428 Darius,1867 that the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 Zechariah2148 in the fourth702 day of the ninth8671 month,2320 even in Chisleu;3691
38-7:2 When they had sent7971 unto the house of God1008 Sherezer8272 and Regem-melech,7278 and their men,376 to pray2470 (853) before6440 the LORD,3068
38-7:3 And to speak559 unto413 the priests3548 which834 were in the house1004 of the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 and to413 the prophets,5030 saying,559 Should I weep1058 in the fifth2549 month,2320 separating myself,5144 as834 I have done6213 these2088 so many4100 years?8141
38-7:4 Then came1961 the word1697 of the LORD3068 of hosts6635 unto413 me, saying,559
38-7:5 Speak559 unto413 all3605 the people5971 of the land,776 and to413 the priests,3548 saying,559 When3588 ye fasted6684 and mourned5594 in the fifth2549 and seventh7637 month, even those2088 seventy7657 years,8141 did ye at all fast6684, 6684 unto me, even to me?589

38-7:10 And oppress6231 not408 the widow,490 nor the fatherless,3490 the stranger,1616 nor the poor;6041 and let none408 of you imagine2803 evil7451, 376 against his brother251 in your heart.3824

38-7:14 But I scattered them with a whirlwind5590 among5921 all3605 the nations1471 whom834 they knew3045 not.3808 Thus the land776 was desolate8074 after310 them, that no man passed through4480, 5674 nor returned:4480, 7725 for they laid7760 the pleasant2532 land776 desolate.8047
