False Prophets Ashamed

1 "In that day a 1fountain will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for 2sin and for 3impurity. 2 "It will come about in that day," declares the LORD of hosts, "that I will 4cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they will no longer be remembered; and I will also remove the 5prophets and the 6unclean spirit from the land. 3 "And if anyone still 7prophesies, then his father and mother who gave birth to him will say to him, 'You shall 8not live, for you have spoken 9falsely in the name of the LORD '; and his 10father and mother who gave birth to him will pierce him through when he prophesies. 4 "Also it will come about in that day that the prophets will each be 11ashamed of his vision when he prophesies, and they will not put on a 12hairy robe in order to deceive; 5 but he will say, 'I am 13not a prophet; I am a tiller of the ground, for a man asold me as a slave in my youth.' 6 "And one will say to him, 'What are these wounds 14between your barms?' Then he will say, 'Those with which I was wounded in the house of cmy friends.' 7 "Awake, O 15sword, against My 16Shepherd, And against the man, My 17Associate," Declares the LORD of hosts. "18Strike the Shepherd that the sheep may be scattered; And I will 19turn My hand dagainst the little ones. 8 "It will come about in all the land," Declares the LORD, "That 20two parts in it will be cut off and perish; But the third will be left in it. 9 "And I will bring the third part through the 21fire, Refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will 22call on My name, And I will 23answer them; I will say, 'They are 24My people,' And they will say, 'The LORD is my God.' "
