Complete Jewish Bible
7 “Awake, sword, against my shepherd,
against the man who is close to me,”
“Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;
I will turn my hand against the young ones.
8 In time, throughout that land,” says Adonai,
“two-thirds of those in it will be destroyed —
they will die, but one-third will remain.
9 That third part I will bring through the fire;
I will refine them as silver is refined,
I will test them as gold is tested.
They will call on my name,
and I will answer them.
I will say, ‘This is my people’
and they will say, ‘Adonai is my God.’”
New International Version
The Shepherd Struck, the Sheep Scattered
7 “Awake, sword,(A) against my shepherd,(B)
against the man who is close to me!”
declares the Lord Almighty.
“Strike the shepherd,
and the sheep will be scattered,(C)
and I will turn my hand against the little ones.
8 In the whole land,” declares the Lord,
“two-thirds will be struck down and perish;
yet one-third will be left in it.(D)
9 This third I will put into the fire;(E)
I will refine them like silver(F)
and test them like gold.(G)
They will call(H) on my name(I)
and I will answer(J) them;
I will say, ‘They are my people,’(K)
and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.(L)’”
