Zechariah 13:7-9

The Shepherd Struck

7 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.’”
