Holman Christian Standard Bible
7 Sword, awake against My shepherd,
against the man who is My associate—
this is the declaration of the Lord of Hosts.
Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;(A)
I will also turn My hand against the little ones.
8 In the whole land—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
two-thirds[a] will be cut off and die,
but a third will be left in it.
9 I will put this third through the fire;
I will refine them as silver is refined
and test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
and I will answer them.
I will say: They are My people,
and they will say: Yahweh is our God.”
- Zechariah 13:8 Lit two-thirds in it
