False Prophets Ashamed1 “In that day a a fountain will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for b sin and for c impurity. 2 “It will come about in that day,” declares the Lord of hosts, “that I will d cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they will no longer be remembered; and I will also remove the e prophets and the f unclean spirit from the land. 3 “And if anyone still g prophesies, then his father and mother who gave birth to him will say to him, ‘You shall h not live, for you have spoken i falsely in the name of the Lord’; and his j father and mother who gave birth to him will pierce him through when he prophesies. 4 “Also it will come about in that day that the prophets will each be k ashamed of his vision when he prophesies, and they will not put on a l hairy robe in order to deceive; 5 but he will say, ‘I am m not a prophet; I am a tiller of the ground, for a man ▼
▼ Lit caused another to buy mesold me as a slave in my youth.’ 6 “And one will say to him, ‘What are these wounds o between your ▼
▼ Lit handsarms?’ Then he will say, ‘Those with which I was wounded in the house of ▼
▼ Lit those who love memy friends.’ 7 “Awake, O r sword, against My s Shepherd,
And against the man, My t Associate,”
Declares the Lord of hosts.
u “Strike the Shepherd that the sheep may be scattered;
And I will v turn My hand ▼
▼ Or uponagainst the little ones.
8 “It will come about in all the land,”
Declares the Lord,
“That x two parts in it will be cut off and perish;
But the third will be left in it.
9 “And I will bring the third part through the y fire,
Refine them as silver is refined,
And test them as gold is tested.
They will z call on My name,
And I will aa answer them;
I will say, ‘They are ab My people,’
And they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”
