(7) Awake, 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.
(8) In all the land, says the Lord, two thirds of them shall be cut off and perish, and one third shall be left.
(9) I 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. 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."
