The Shepherd Struck7 “Awake, O sword, against a my shepherd,
against the man who stands next to me,”
declares the Lord of hosts.
b “Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;
I will turn my hand against the little ones.
8In the whole land, declares the Lord,
two thirds shall be cut off and perish,
c and one third shall be left alive.
9And d I will put this third into the fire,
and refine them as one refines silver,
and test them as gold is tested.
e They will call upon my name,
and f I will answer them.
g I will say, ‘They are my people’;
and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”
Greeting1 h James, a servant ▼
▼Or slave (for the contextual rendering of the Greek word doulos, see Preface)of God and j of the Lord Jesus Christ, To k the twelve tribes in l the Dispersion: Greetings.
