Zechariah 13:6-8 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Someone will ask him, “What are these wounds on your body?”[a] He will reply, “I received these wounds in the house of my friends.”

Strike the Shepherd, and the Sheep Will Be Scattered

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd,
    and against the man who is my associate, declares the Lord of Armies.
    Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered,
    and I will turn my hand against the little ones.[b]

This will take place in the whole land, declares the Lord:
    Two thirds of those who remain in it will be cut off and perish,
    but one third will be left in it.
