Zechariah 12

The Book of Zechariah



In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for uncleanness.


And it shall come to pass in that day, saith YAHUVEH of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered; and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.


And it shall come to pass that, when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of YAHUVEH; and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.


And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he prophesieth; neither shall they wear a hairy mantle to deceive:


but he shall say, I am no prophet, I am a tiller of the ground; for I have been made a bondman from my youth.


And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds between thine arms? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.


Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith YAHUVEH of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered; and I will turn my hand upon the little ones.


And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith YAHUVEH, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.


And I will bring the third part into the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people; and they shall say, YAHUVEH is my YAHUVEH.
