Sword, awake against my shepherd,
against the man who is my associate—
this is the declaration of the Lord of Armies.
Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;(A)
I will turn my hand against the little ones.
In the whole land—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
two-thirds[a] will be cut off and die,
but a third will be left in it.
I will put this third through the fire;
I will refine them as silver is refined
and test them as gold is tested.(B)
They will call on my name,
and I will answer them.(C)
I will say, ‘They are my people,’
and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God.’”(D)
