Zechariah 8:19 Thus saith YHWH of Hosts; the Fast of the Fourth Month, and the Fast of the First, and the Fast of the Seventh, and the Fast of the Tenth, shall be within Judea joy and gladness and cheerful meetings; therefore love the truth and peace.
Zechariah 8:22 And there shall come many peoples and many nations to seek after the face of YHWH Almighty in Jerusalem, and to ATONE in front of YHWH.
Zechariah 7:3-7 Ask the priests of the house of YHWH of hosts and the prophets, "Should I Mourn and Fast in the First month, as I have done for so many years?" 4 Then the word of YHWH of hosts came to me; 5 "Say to all the people of the land and the priests, When you Fasted and Mourned in the First month and in the Seventh, for these seventy years, was it for me that you Fasted? 6 And when you eat and when you drink, do you not eat for yourselves and drink for yourselves? 7 When Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, with her cities round about her, and the South and the lowland were inhabited, were not these the words which YHWH proclaimed by the former prophets?
Leviticus 23:27 On the Tenth Day of this Seventh Month is the Day of Atonement; it shall be for you a time of holy convocation, and you shall afflict yourselves and present an offering by fire to YHWH.
Jubilees 34:18-20 For this reason it is ordained for the children of Israel that they should afflict themselves on the Tenth of the Seventh Month −on the day that the news which made him weep for Joseph came to Jacob his father− that they should make Atonement for themselves thereon with a young goat on the Tenth of the Seventh Month, once a year for their sins; for they had grieved the 19 affection of their father regarding Joseph his son. And this day has been ordained that they should grieve thereon for their sins, and for all their transgressions and for all their errors, so that they 20 might cleanse themselves on that day once a year.
*Zechariah 7:3, 7:5, & 8:19 have transcription errors that occurred in the translation of the Septuagint text. The word “First” in Greek is “protos,” (pro-tos), but was transcribed as "pemptos," (pemp-tos), "Fifth" and the error was carried forward to the Masoretic Text.
