The End of Falsehood. 1On that day there shall be open to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, a fountain to purify from sin* and uncleanness. g Heb 9, 14; 1 Pt 1, 18f; Rv 1, 5 . 2On that day, says the LORD of hosts, I will destroy the names of the idols from the land, so that they shall be mentioned no more; I will also take away the prophets and the spirit of uncleanness from the land. h Mi 5, 12; 2 Pt 2, 1 . 3If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, “You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the LORD.” When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through. i Dt 18, 20; Mi 3, 5ff .

4On that day, every prophet shall be ashamed to prophesy his vision, neither shall he assume the hairy mantle*to mislead, 5but he shall say, “I am no prophet, I am a tiller of the soil, for I have owned land since my youth.” j Am 7, 14 . 6And if anyone asks him, “What are these wounds on your chest?”* he shall answer, “With these I was wounded in the house of my dear ones.”

The Song of the Sword

7Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, against the man who is my associate, says the LORD of hosts. Strike the shepherd that the sheep may be dispersed,* and I will turn my hand against the little ones. k Mt 26, 31 . 8In all the land, says the LORD, two thirds of them shall be cut off and perish, and one third shall be left. 9I will bring the one third through fire, and I will refine them as silver is refined, and I will test them as gold is tested. l Jer 30, 22; Ps 66, 10 . They shall call upon my name, and I will hear them. I will say, “They are my people,” and they shall say, “The LORD is my God.”
