This is what the prophet
Zechariah says in his book regarding the fast of the fifth month:
Zechariah 8:18 And the Word
of hwhy of Hosts came unto me,
saying, 19 Thus saith hwhy of Hosts; The fast of the
fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh,
and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and
gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace.
In other words, they were not to fast, but to "feast" on these days.
