Ezekiel 34:23-24

Context

34:23 I will set one shepherd over them, and he will feed them – namely, my servant David. 1  He will feed them and will be their shepherd. 34:24 I, the Lord, will be their God, and my servant David will be prince 2  among them; I, the Lord, have spoken!

1 sn The messianic king is here called “David” (see Jer 30:9 and Hos 3:5, as well as Isa 11:1 and Mic 5:2) because he will fulfill the Davidic royal ideal depicted in the prophets and royal psalms (see Ps 2, 89).

2 sn The messianic king (“David”) is called both “king” and “prince” in 37:24-25. The use of the term “prince” for this king facilitates the contrast between this ideal ruler and the Davidic “princes” denounced in earlier prophecies (see 7:27; 12:10, 12; 19:1; 21:25; 22:6, 25).
