Tree of Life Version
7 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.
8 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.
9 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]
