Zechariah 131 a “On that day there shall be b a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.
Idolatry Cut Off2 “And c on that day, declares the Lord of hosts d I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, so that e they shall be remembered no more. And also f I will remove from the land the prophets and the spirit of uncleanness. 3 And if anyone again prophesies, his father and mother who bore him will say to him, g ‘You shall not live, for you speak lies in the name of the Lord.’ And his father and mother who bore him shall pierce him through when he prophesies. 4 “On that day h every prophet will be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies. He will not put on a hairy cloak in order to deceive, 5 but he will say, i ‘I am no prophet, I am a worker of the soil, for a man sold me in my youth.’ ▼
▼ Or for the land has been my possession since my youth6 And if one asks him, ‘What are these wounds on your back?’ ▼
▼ Or on your chest; Hebrew wounds between your handshe will say, ‘The wounds I received in the house of my friends.’
The Shepherd Struck7 “Awake, O sword, against l my shepherd,
against the man who stands next to me,”
declares the Lord of hosts.
m “Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;
I will turn my hand against the little ones.
8 In the whole land, declares the Lord,
two thirds shall be cut off and perish,
n and one third shall be left alive.
9 And o I will put this third into the fire,
and refine them as one refines silver,
and test them as gold is tested.
p They will call upon my name,
and q I will answer them.
r I will say, ‘They are my people’;
and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”
