Jeremiah 33:13

Context
33:13 I, the Lord, say that shepherds will once again count their sheep as they pass into the fold. 1  They will do this in all the towns in the southern hill country, the western foothills, the southern hill country, the territory of Benjamin, the villages surrounding Jerusalem, and the towns of Judah.’ 2 

1 sn Heb “Sheep will again pass under the hands of the counter.” This appears to be a reference to counting the sheep to make sure that none was missing as they returned to the fold. See the same idiom in Lev 27:52 and in the metaphor in Ezek 20:37.

2 sn Compare Jer 32:44.
