The fountain of purgation for Jerusalem,
Zechariah 13:1 In that day there is a fountain opened To the house of David And to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, For sin and for impurity.
from idolatry, and a false prophecy.
Zechariah 13:2 And it hath come to pass, in that day, An affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts, I cut off the names of the idols from the land, And they are not remembered any more, And also the prophets and the spirit of uncleanness I cause to pass away from the land. Zechariah 13:3 And it hath been, when one prophesieth again, That said unto him have his father and his mother, his parents, 'Thou dost not live, For falsehood thou hast spoken in the name of Jehovah,' And pierced him through have his father and his mother, his parents, in his prophesying. Zechariah 13:4 And it hath come to pass, in that day, Ashamed are the prophets, each of his vision, in his prophesying, And they put not on a hairy robe to deceive. Zechariah 13:5 And [one] hath said, 'I am not a prophet, A man, a tiller of ground I am, For ground [is] my possession from my youth.' Zechariah 13:6 And [one] hath said unto him, 'What [are] these wounds in thy hands?' And he hath said, 'Because I was smitten [at] home by my lovers.'
The death of Christ, and the trial of a third part.
Zechariah 13:7 Sword, awake against My shepherd, And against a heroMy fellow, An affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts. Smite the shepherd, and scattered is the flock, And I have put back My hand on the little ones. Zechariah 13:8 And it hath come to pass, In all the land, an affirmation of Jehovah, Two parts in it are cut offthey expire, And the third is left in it. Zechariah 13:9 And I have brought the third into fire, And refined them like a refining of silver, And have tried them like a trying of gold, It doth call in My name, and I answer it, I have said, 'My people it [is],' And it saith, 'Jehovah [is] my God!'
