Zechariah 13:4 New English Translation (NET Bible)

“Therefore, on that day each prophet will be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies and will no longer wear the hairy garment[a] of a prophet to deceive the people.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. Zechariah 13:4 tn The “hairy garment of a prophet” (אַדֶּרֶת שֵׁעָר, ʾadderet sheʿar) was the rough clothing of Elijah (1 Kgs 19:13), Elisha (1 Kgs 19:19; 2 Kgs 2:14), and even John the Baptist (Matt 3:4). Yet אַדֶּרֶת alone suggests something of beauty and honor (Josh 7:21). The prophet’s attire may have been simple; the image it conveyed was one of great dignity.
  2. Zechariah 13:4 tn The words “the people” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied in the translation from context (cf. NCV, TEV, NLT).
