1 In that day, there shall be an opened fountain, for the house of David, and for the Inhabitants of Jerusalem, - for sin and for uncleanness. 2 And it shall come to pass, in that day, declareth Yahweh of hosts, That I will cut off the names of idols out of the land, and they shall not be remembered any more, - Moreover also, even the prophets and the spirit of impurity, will I cause to pass away out of the land. 3 So shall it come about that, when any man shall prophesy again, then will his own father and his own mother, of whom he was born, say unto him, - Thou shalt not live! For falsehood hast thou spoken in the name of Yahweh, - So will his own father and his own mother of whom he was born, pierce him through, when he prophesieth, 4 Yea it shall come to pass, in that day, that the prophets, will turn pale, every man by reason of his vision when he prophesieth, - neither will they put on a mantle of hair to deceive. 5 But he will say, No prophet, am I, - One tilling the ground, am I, for, one of the common people, hath owned me from my youth. 6 Then will one say unto him, What are these wounds between thy hands? And he will say, Wherewith I was wounded in the house of them who loved me.
7 O Sword! awake against my shepherd, even against the man that is my companion, urgeth Yahweh of hosts, - Smite the shepherd, and let the flock, be scattered, Howbeit I will turn back my hand over the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass, in all the land, declareth Yahweh, Two-thirds therein, shall be cut off, and expire, - but, a third, shall be left therein; 9 And I will bring the third into the fire, and will smelt them as one smelteth silver, and will try them, as one trieth gold, - It, will call upon my name, and, I, will answer it, and will say, My people, it is! and, it, will say, Yahweh, is my God!
