1The fountain of purification for Jerusalem. 2The eradication of idolatry and false prophecy. 7The death of Christ, and the saving of a third part after a severe trial.

¶And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will ccut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the dprophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.

3

And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet eprophesy, 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: fand 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 gshall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear 2a rough garment 3to deceive:

5

But he shall say, hI am no prophet, I am an *husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
