"Awake, O sword, against k My Shepherd,
Against the Man l who is My Companion,"
Says the LORD of hosts.
m "Strike the Shepherd,
And the sheep will be scattered;
Then I will turn My hand against n the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass in all the land,"
Says the LORD,
"That o two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die,
p But one-third shall be left in it: 9 I will bring the one-third q through the fire,
Will r refine them as silver is refined,
And test them as gold is tested.
s They will call on My name,
And I will answer them.
t I will say, 'This is My people';
And each one will say, 'The LORD is my God.' "
