Zechariah 11:7-14New American Standard Bible (NASB)
7 So I pastured the flock doomed to slaughter, [a]hence the afflicted of the flock. And I took for myself two staffs: the one I called [b]Favor and the other I called [c]Union; so I pastured the flock.8 Then I annihilated the three shepherds in one month, for my soul was impatient with them, and their soul also [d]was weary of me.9 Then I said, “I will not pasture you. What is to die, [e]let it die, and what is to be annihilated, [f]let it be annihilated; and [g]let those who are left eat one another’s flesh.”10 I took my staff [h]Favor and cut it in pieces, to [i]break my covenant which I had made with all the peoples.11 So it was [j]broken on that day, and [k]thus the afflicted of the flock who were watching me realized that it was the word of the Lord.12 I said to them, “If it is good in your sight, give me my wages; but if not, [l]never mind!” So they weighed out thirty shekels of silver as my wages.13 Then the Lord said to me, “Throw it to the potter, that magnificent price at which I was valued by them.” So I took the thirty shekels of silver and threw them to the potter in the house of the Lord.14 Then I cut in pieces my second staff [m]Union, to break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.
