The Jews will gain forgiveness at the Second Coming—They will ask the Lord, What are these wounds in Thine hands?—The remnant, tried and refined, will be His people.
1 In that day there shall be a afountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.
2 ¶ And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the aidols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
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.
4 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be aashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a brough garment to deceive:
5 But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
6 And one shall say unto him, What are these awounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was bwounded in the house of my friends.
7 ¶ Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man athat is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the bshepherd, and the csheep shall be dscattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be aleft therein.
9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will arefine them as silver is refined, and will btry them as gold is ctried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my dpeople: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.
