Zechariah 13:6-8 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
6 And if one asks him, ‘What are these wounds on your back?’ he will say, ‘The wounds I received in the house of my friends.’”
The Shepherd Struck, the Flock Scattered
7 “Awake, O sword, against my shepherd,
against the man who stands next to me,”
says the Lord of hosts.
“Strike the shepherd, that the sheep may be scattered;
I will turn my hand against the little ones.
8 In the whole land, says the Lord,
two thirds shall be cut off and perish,
and one third shall be left alive.
