“Arise, sword, against my shepherd,
    against the mighty one who is related to me,”
        declares the Lord of the Heavenly Armies.
“Strike the shepherd,
    the sheep will be scattered,
        and I will turn against the insignificant ones.
It will come about in all of the land,”
    declares the Lord,
“that two thirds of the people living there will die,
    but a third will survive who live there.
And I will bring that surviving third through,
    testing them as if through fire,
purifying them like silver,
    assaying them like gold.
They will call on my name,
    and I will answer them.
I will say, ‘This is my people,’
    and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”
