Zechariah 13:7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The Song of the Sword

Awake, O sword, against my shepherd,
    against the one who is my associate
    —oracle of the Lord of hosts.
Strike the shepherd
    that the sheep may be scattered;[a]
    I will turn my hand against the little ones.

Footnotes:

  1. 13:7 Strike the shepherd…may be scattered: in Matthew’s Gospel (26:31) Jesus makes use of this text before his arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane and the flight of the disciples.
