Zechariah 13
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1ON that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sprinkling and for cleansing.

2And it shall come to pass on that day, says the LORD of hosts, I will do away with the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no more be remembered; and also I will remove from the land the false prophets and the unclean spirits. 3And it shall come to pass that if any man shall yet prophesy, his father and his mother shall say to him, You shall not live; for you speak lies in the name of the LORD; and his father and his mother who bore him shall cut him asunder when he prophesies. 4And it shall come to pass in that day that the false prophets shall be ashamed every man of the vision of his prophecy; neither shall they wear a hairy skin, because they have lied. 5But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am a farmer; and a man made me zealous to prophesy from my youth. 6And they shall say to him, What are these wounds in your hands? And he shall say, These are wounds with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

7Awake, O sword, against my shepherd and against the man who is my friend, says the LORD of hosts; smite the shepherd, and his sheep shall be scattered; and I will turn my hand against the great ones.

8And it shall come to pass that in all the land, says the LORD, two parts therein shall perish and be destroyed; but the third shall be left therein.

9And I will cause the third part to pass through the fire, and will refine them as they refine silver, and will try them as they try gold; they shall call on my name, and I will answer them; I will say, They are my people; and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
