English Standard Version
1“On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.
Idolatry Cut Off
2“And on that day, declares the Lord of hosts, I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, so that they shall be remembered no more. And also I will remove from the land the prophets and the spirit of uncleanness. 3And if anyone again prophesies, his father and mother who bore him will say to him, ‘You shall not live, for you speak lies in the name of the Lord.’ And his father and mother who bore him shall pierce him through when he prophesies.
4“On that day every prophet will be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies. He will not put on a hairy cloak in order to deceive, 5but he will say, ‘I am no prophet, I am a worker of the soil, for a man sold me in my youth.’a 6And if one asks him, ‘What are these wounds on your back?’b he will say, ‘The wounds I received in the house of my friends.’
The Shepherd Struck
7“Awake, O sword, against my shepherd,
“Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;
a 5 Or for the land has been my possession since my youth
b 6 Or on your chest; Hebrew wounds between your hands
