Striking the Shepherd, Scattering the Sheep

“Awake, O sword, against My shepherd
    and the man of My association,”
    says the Lord of Hosts.
Strike the shepherd,
    and the sheep will scatter.
    I will turn My hand against the small ones.
And it will happen in all the land, says the Lord,
    that two-thirds will be cut off and die,
    and one-third will be left in the land.
And I will bring this one-third left into the fire,
    and will refine them as the refinement of silver,
    and will test them as the testing of gold.
They will call on My name,
    and I will answer them.
I will say, “They are My people”;
    and they will say, “The Lord is my God.”
