1
In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for purification and for sprinkling.
2
And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered;
and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
3
And it shall come to pass that, when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begot him shall say unto him: "Thou shalt not live, for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD";
and his father and his mother that begot him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.
4
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be brought to shame every one through his vision, when he prophesieth;
neither shall they wear a hairy mantle to deceive;
5
but he shall say: "I am no prophet, I am a tiller of the ground;
for I have been made a bondman from my youth."
6
And one shall say unto him: "What are these wounds between thy hands?" Then he shall answer: "Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends."
7
Awake, O sword, against My shepherd, and against the man that is near unto Me, saith the LORD of hosts;
smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered;
and I will turn My hand upon the little ones.
8
And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die;
but the third shall be left therein.
9
And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried;
they shall call on My name, and I will answer them;
I will say: "It is My people", and they shall say: "The LORD is my God."
