Idolatry Cut Off

13 “In that (A)day (B)a fountain shall be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for (C)uncleanness.

“It shall be in that day,” says the Lord of hosts, “that I will (D)cut off the names of the idols from the land, and they shall no longer be remembered. I will also cause (E)the prophets and the unclean spirit to depart from the land. It shall come to pass that if anyone still prophesies, then his father and mother who begot him will say to him, ‘You shall (F)not live, because you have spoken lies in the name of the Lord.’ And his father and mother who begot him (G)shall thrust him through when he prophesies.

“And it shall be in that day that (H)every prophet will be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies; they will not wear (I)a robe of coarse hair to deceive. (J)But he will say, ‘I am no prophet, I am a farmer; for a man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.’ And one will say to him, ‘What are these wounds between your [a]arms?’ Then he will answer, ‘Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.’

  1. Zechariah 13:6 Or hands

And in that day His feet will stand (A)on the Mount of Olives,
Which faces Jerusalem on the east.
And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two,
From east to west,
(B)Making a very large valley;
Half of the mountain shall move toward the north
And half of it toward the south.

Then you shall flee through My mountain valley,
For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal.
Yes, you shall flee
As you fled from the (C)earthquake
In the days of Uzziah king of Judah.

(D)Thus the Lord my God will come,
And (E)all the saints with [a]You.

It shall come to pass in that day
That there will be no light;
The [b]lights will diminish.
It shall be one day
(F)Which is known to the Lord
Neither day nor night.
But at (G)evening time it shall happen
That it will be light.

And in that day it shall be
That living (H)waters shall flow from Jerusalem,
Half of them toward [c]the eastern sea
And half of them toward [d]the western sea;
In both summer and winter it shall occur.
