Significance Translation:
Go to Zechariah 13:1    In that day there will be a source of right instruction opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem to correct harmful habits and choices.

Go to Zechariah 13:2    And it will come to pass in that day, says Yehuveh over everything, that I will cut off idolatrous names out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause those who claim to speak for Yehuveh and the incorrect attitudes [created by the false beliefs they promoted] to pass out of the land.

Go to Zechariah 13:3    And it will come to pass, that when anyone speaks for Yehuveh [falsely], then his own father and mother will say unto him, You will not live; for you speak lies in the name of Yehuveh: and his own father and mother will penetrate him to his very heart when he misrepresents Yehuveh’s words.

Go to Zechariah 13:4    And it will come to pass in that day, that every one of the spokesmen will be ashamed of his revealings, when he has spoken Yehuveh’s words [falsely]; neither will they enclose themselves in [apparent] understanding as if they knew Yehuveh’s ways:

Go to Zechariah 13:5    But each will say, I am no spokesman for Yehuveh, I am a common laborer; for mankind taught me to take employment from my youth.

Go to Zechariah 13:6    And one shall say unto him, What are these oppressions forced on your hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was oppressed by my own kinsmen in my own nation.

Go to Zechariah 13:7    Awake, O warfare, against my royal leadership, and against the men that are of my own nation, says Yehuveh over everything: smite the royal leadership, and those controlled by them will be scattered: and I will turn My hand to deliver the common people.

Go to Zechariah 13:8    And it will follow, that in all the earth, says Yehuveh, two portions [of the people] will be cut off and die; but the third portion will be left therein.

Go to Zechariah 13:9    And I will bring the third portion through intense conviction, and will purify them as right instruction cleanses, and will try them as only My word can challenge them: they will call on My name, and I will hear them: I will say, These are My people: and they will say, Yehuveh is our Elohim.

13:3  And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.


13:4  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
