The Shepherd Struck, the Sheep Scattered

“Arise, sword, against my shepherd,
    against the man who is my friend,” declares Yahweh Tsebaoth.
    “Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.
    Then I will turn my hand against the little ones.”

Yahweh declares,

“Throughout the land two-thirds will be cut off and die.
    Yet, one-third will be left in it.
I will bring this third of the people through the fire.
    I will refine them as silver is refined.
    I will test them as gold is tested.
    They will call on me, and I will answer them.
        I will say, ‘They are my people.’
            They will reply, ‘Yahweh is our Elohim.’”
