Idolatry Cut Off

Zechariah 13

2 "And i on that day, declares the Lord of hosts, k I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, so that l they shall be remembered no more. And also m I will remove from the land the prophets and the spirit of uncleanness. 3 And if anyone again prophesies, his father and mother who bore him will say to him, n 'You shall not live, for you speak lies in the name of the Lord.' And his father and mother who bore him shall pierce him through when he prophesies.

4 "On that day o every prophet will be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies. He will not put on a hairy cloak in order to deceive, 5 but he will say, p 'I am no prophet, I am a worker of the soil, for a man sold me in my youth.' 1 6 And if one asks him, 'What are these wounds on your back?' 2 he will say, 'The wounds I received in the house of my friends.'
