The Fountain of Cleansing for Jerusalem; Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered

"In that day there will be a spring opened to David's house and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for uncleanness. +
It will come to pass in that day, says the LORD of Hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they will be remembered no more. I will also cause the prophets and the spirit of impurity to pass out of the land. +
It will happen that, when anyone still prophesies, then his father and his mother who bore him will tell him, 'You must die, because you speak lies in The LORD's name;' and his father and his mother who bore him will stab him when he prophesies. +
It will happen in that day, that the prophets will each be ashamed of his vision, when he prophesies; neither will they wear a hairy mantle to deceive: +
but he will say, 'I am no prophet, I am a tiller of the ground; for I have been made a bondservant from my youth.' +
One will say to him, 'What are these wounds between your arms?' Then he will answer, 'Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.' +
"Awake, sword, against my shepherd,and against the man who is close to me," says the LORD of Hosts."Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;and I will turn my hand against the little ones. +
It shall happen that in all the land," says The LORD,"two parts in it will be cut off and die;but the third will be left in it. +
I will bring the third part into the fire,and will refine them as silver is refined,and will test them like gold is tested.They will call on my name, and I will hear them.I will say, 'It is my people;'and they will say, 'The LORD is my God.'" +
