from idolatry, and a false prophecy.
Zechariah 13:2 And it shal come to passe in that day, saith the LORD of hostes, [that] I will cut off the names of the idoles out of the land: and they shal no more be remembred: and also I wil cause the prophets, and the vncleane spirit to passe out of the land. Zechariah 13:3 And it shal come to passe [that] when any shall yet prophecie, then his father and his mother that begate him, shall say vnto him, Thou shalt not liue: for thou speakest lies in the Name of the LORD: and his father and his mother, that begate him, shall thrust him through when he prophecieth. Zechariah 13:4 And it shall come to passe in that day, that the prophets shalbe ashamed euery one of his vision, when hee hath prophecied: neither shall they weare a rough garment to deceiue. Zechariah 13:5 But he shal say, I [am] no prophet, I [am] an husbandman: for man taught me to keepe cattell from my youth. Zechariah 13:6 And one shal say vnto him, What [are] these wounds in thine hands? Then hee shall answere: [Those] with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.
The death of Christ, and the trial of a third part.
Zechariah 13:7 Awake, O sword, against my shepheard, and against the man [that is] my fellow, saith the LORD of hostes: smite the Shepheard, and the sheepe shalbe scattered: and I wil turne mine hand vpon the litle ones. Zechariah 13:8 And it shall come to passe, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off, [and] die, but the third shall be left therein. Zechariah 13:9 And I will bring the thirde part through the fire, and wil refine them as siluer is refined, & will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my Name, and I wil heare them: I wil say, It [is] my people: and they shall say, The LORD [is] my God.
