Awake, O sword, against My shepherd,
    against the man who is My companion!
It is a declaration of Adonai-Tzva’ot.
    Strike the shepherd
    and the sheep will be scattered![a]
    I will turn My hand against the little ones.
Then it will happen
    —it is a declaration of Adonai
    that in the entire land
        two-thirds will be cut off and die,
        but a third will be left in it.
This third I will bring through the fire.
    I will refine them as silver is refined,
    and will test them as gold is tested.
    They will call on My Name
        and I will answer them.
    I will say, ‘They are My people,’
    and they will answer, ‘Adonai is my God.’[b]
