The Shepherd Struck, the Sheep Scattered

“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.
In the whole land,” declares the Lord,
    “two-thirds will be struck down and perish;
    yet one-third will be left in it.(D)
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)’”
