Cleansing From Sin

1 "On that day a fountain1 will be opened to the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse2 them from sin and impurity. 2 "On that day, I will banish the names of the idols3 from the land, and they will be remembered no more,"4 declares the LORD Almighty. "I will remove both the prophets5 and the spirit of impurity from the land. 3 And if anyone still prophesies, his father and mother, to whom he was born, will say to him, 'You must die, because you have told lies6 in the LORD's name.' When he prophesies, his own parents will stab him.7 4 "On that day every prophet will be ashamed8 of his prophetic vision. He will not put on a prophet's garment9 of hair10 in order to deceive.11 5 He will say, 'I am not a prophet. I am a farmer; the land has been my livelihood since my youth.a '12 6 If someone asks him, 'What are these wounds on your bodyb ?' he will answer, 'The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.'

The Shepherd Struck, the Sheep Scattered

7 "Awake, O sword,13 against my shepherd,14 against the man who is close to me!" declares the LORD Almighty. "Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered,15 and I will turn my hand against the little ones.
