Bible: Zech 12:9-13:2

12:9 So on that day I will set out to destroy all the nations 1  that come against Jerusalem.”

12:10I will pour out on the kingship 2  of David and the population of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication so that they will look to me, 3  the one they have pierced. They will lament for him as one laments for an only son, and there will be a bitter cry for him like the bitter cry for a firstborn. 4  12:11 On that day the lamentation in Jerusalem will be as great as the lamentation at Hadad-Rimmon 5  in the plain of Megiddo. 6  12:12 The land will mourn, clan by clan – the clan of the royal household of David by itself and their wives by themselves; the clan of the family of Nathan 7  by itself and their wives by themselves; 12:13 the clan of the descendants of Levi by itself and their wives by themselves; and the clan of the Shimeites 8  by itself and their wives by themselves 12:14 all the clans that remain, each separately with their wives.”

The Refinement of Judah

13:1In that day there will be a fountain opened up for the dynasty 9  of David and the people of Jerusalem 10  to cleanse them from sin and impurity. 11  13:2 And also on that day,” says the Lord who rules over all, “I will remove 12  the names of the idols from the land and they will never again be remembered. Moreover, I will remove the prophets and the unclean spirit from the land.
