Tyndale Bible

Zechariah 7

The captives enquire of fasting.

Zechariah 7:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, [that] the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah in the fourth [day] of the ninth month, [even] in Chisleu; Zechariah 7:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} When they had sent unto the house of God Sherezer and Regem-melech, and their men, to pray before the LORD, Zechariah 7:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} [And] to speak unto the priests which [were] in the house of the LORD of hosts, and to the prophets, saying, Should I weep in the fifth month, separating myself, as I have done these so many years?

Zechariah reproveth their fasting.

Zechariah 7:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then came the word of the LORD of hosts unto me, saying, Zechariah 7:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh [month], even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, [even] to me? Zechariah 7:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And when ye did eat, and when ye did drink, did not ye eat [for yourselves], and drink [for yourselves]? Zechariah 7:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} [Should ye] not [hear] the words which the LORD hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, and the cities thereof round about her, when [men] inhabited the south and the plain?

Sin the cause of their captivity.

Zechariah 7:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah, saying, Zechariah 7:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and show mercy and compassions every man to his brother: Zechariah 7:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart. Zechariah 7:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. Zechariah 7:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Yea, they made their hearts [as] an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts. Zechariah 7:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Therefore it is come to pass, [that] as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts: Zechariah 7:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate.
