Ezekiel 34

And the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came unto me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Son
<01121>
of man
<0120>_,
prophesy
<05012> (8734)
against the shepherds
<07462> (8802)
of Israel
<03478>_,
prophesy
<05012> (8734)_,
and say
<0559> (8804)
unto them, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
unto the shepherds
<07462> (8802)_;
Woe
<01945>
[be] to the shepherds
<07462> (8802)
of Israel
<03478>
that do feed
<07462> (8802)
themselves! should not the shepherds
<07462> (8802)
feed
<07462> (8799)
the flocks
<06629>_?
Ye eat
<0398> (8799)
the fat
<02459>_,
and ye clothe
<03847> (8799)
you with the wool
<06785>_,
ye kill
<02076> (8799)
them that are fed
<01277>_:
[but] ye feed
<07462> (8799)
not the flock
<06629>_.
The diseased
<02470> (8737)
have ye not strengthened
<02388> (8765)_,
neither have ye healed
<07495> (8765)
that which was sick
<02470> (8802)_,
neither have ye bound up
<02280> (8804)
[that which was] broken
<07665> (8737)_,
neither have ye brought again
<07725> (8689)
that which was driven away
<05080> (8737)_,
neither have ye sought
<01245> (8765)
that which was lost
<06> (8802)_;
but with force
<02394>
and with cruelty
<06531>
have ye ruled
<07287> (8804)
them.
And they were scattered
<06327> (8799)_,
because [there is] no shepherd
<07462> (8802)_:
and they became meat
<0402>
to all the beasts
<02416>
of the field
<07704>_,
when they were scattered
<06327> (8799)_.
{because...: or, without a shepherd}
My sheep
<06629>
wandered
<07686> (8799)
through all the mountains
<02022>_,
and upon every high
<07311> (8802)
hill
<01389>_:
yea, my flock
<06629>
was scattered
<06327> (8738)
upon all the face
<06440>
of the earth
<0776>_,
and none did search
<01875> (8802)
or seek
<01245> (8764)
[after them].
Therefore, ye shepherds
<07462> (8802)_,
hear
<08085> (8798)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
[As] I live
<02416>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
surely because my flock
<06629>
became a prey
<0957>_,
and my flock
<06629>
became meat
<0402>
to every beast
<02416>
of the field
<07704>_,
because [there was] no shepherd
<07462> (8802)_,
neither did my shepherds
<07462> (8802)
search
<01875> (8804)
for my flock
<06629>_,
but the shepherds
<07462> (8802)
fed
<07462> (8799)
themselves, and fed
<07462> (8804)
not my flock
<06629>_;
{because...: or, without a shepherd}
Therefore, O ye shepherds
<07462> (8802)_,
hear
<08085> (8798)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
Behold, I [am] against the shepherds
<07462> (8802)_;
and I will require
<01875> (8804)
my flock
<06629>
at their hand
<03027>_,
and cause them to cease
<07673> (8689)
from feeding
<07462> (8800)
the flock
<06629>_;
neither shall the shepherds
<07462> (8802)
feed
<07462> (8799)
themselves any more; for I will deliver
<05337> (8689)
my flock
<06629>
from their mouth
<06310>_,
that they may not be meat
<0402>
for them.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
Behold, I, [even] I, will both search
<01875> (8804)
my sheep
<06629>_,
and seek them out
<01239> (8765)_.
As a shepherd
<07462> (8802)
seeketh out
<01243>
his flock
<05739>
in the day
<03117>
that he is among
<08432>
his sheep
<06629>
[that are] scattered
<06567> (8737)_;
so will I seek out
<01239> (8762)
my sheep
<06629>_,
and will deliver
<05337> (8689)
them out of all places
<04725>
where they have been scattered
<06327> (8738)
in the cloudy
<06051>
and dark
<06205>
day
<03117>_.
{As...: Heb. According to the seeking}
And I will bring them out
<03318> (8689)
from the people
<05971>_,
and gather
<06908> (8765)
them from the countries
<0776>_,
and will bring
<0935> (8689)
them to their own land
<0127>_,
and feed
<07462> (8804)
them upon the mountains
<02022>
of Israel
<03478>
by the rivers
<0650>_,
and in all the inhabited places
<04186>
of the country
<0776>_.
I will feed
<07462> (8799)
them in a good
<02896>
pasture
<04829>_,
and upon the high
<04791>
mountains
<02022>
of Israel
<03478>
shall their fold
<05116>
be: there shall they lie
<07257> (8799)
in a good
<02896>
fold
<05116>_,
and [in] a fat
<08082>
pasture
<04829>
shall they feed
<07462> (8799)
upon the mountains
<02022>
of Israel
<03478>_.
I will feed
<07462> (8799)
my flock
<06629>_,
and I will cause them to lie down
<07257> (8686)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_.
I will seek
<01245> (8762)
that which was lost
<06> (8802)_,
and bring again
<07725> (8686)
that which was driven away
<05080> (8737)_,
and will bind up
<02280> (8799)
[that which was] broken
<07665> (8737)_,
and will strengthen
<02388> (8762)
that which was sick
<02470> (8802)_:
but I will destroy
<08045> (8686)
the fat
<08082>
and the strong
<02389>_;
I will feed
<07462> (8799)
them with judgment
<04941>_.
And [as for] you
<0859>_,
O my flock
<06629>_,
thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
Behold, I judge
<08199> (8802)
between cattle
<07716>
and cattle
<07716>_,
between the rams
<0352>
and the he goats
<06260>_.
{cattle: Heb. small cattle of lambs and kids} {he goats: Heb. great he goats}
[Seemeth it] a small thing
<04592>
unto you to have eaten up
<07462> (8799)
the good
<02896>
pasture
<04829>_,
but ye must tread down
<07429> (8799)
with your feet
<07272>
the residue
<03499>
of your pastures
<04829>_?
and to have drunk
<08354> (8799)
of the deep
<04950>
waters
<04325>_,
but ye must foul
<07515> (8799)
the residue
<03498> (8737)
with your feet
<07272>_?
And [as for] my flock
<06629>_,
they eat
<07462> (8799)
that which ye have trodden
<04823>
with your feet
<07272>_;
and they drink
<08354> (8799)
that which ye have fouled
<04833>
with your feet
<07272>_.
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
unto them; Behold, I, [even] I, will judge
<08199> (8804)
between the fat
<01274>
cattle
<07716>
and between the lean
<07330>
cattle
<07716>_.
Because ye have thrust
<01920> (8799)
with side
<06654>
and with shoulder
<03802>_,
and pushed
<05055> (8762)
all the diseased
<02470> (8737)
with your horns
<07161>_,
till ye have scattered
<06327> (8689)
them abroad
<02351>_;
Therefore will I save
<03467> (8689)
my flock
<06629>_,
and they shall no more be a prey
<0957>_;
and I will judge
<08199> (8804)
between cattle
<07716>
and cattle
<07716>_.
And I will set up
<06965> (8689)
one
<0259>
shepherd
<07462> (8802)
over them, and he shall feed
<07462> (8804)
them, [even] my servant
<05650>
David
<01732>_;
he shall feed
<07462> (8799)
them, and he shall be their shepherd
<07462> (8802)_.
And I the LORD
<03068>
will be their God
<0430>_,
and my servant
<05650>
David
<01732>
a prince
<05387>
among
<08432>
them; I the LORD
<03068>
have spoken
<01696> (8765)
[it].
And I will make
<03772> (8804)
with them a covenant
<01285>
of peace
<07965>_,
and will cause the evil
<07451>
beasts
<02416>
to cease
<07673> (8689)
out of the land
<0776>_:
and they shall dwell
<03427> (8804)
safely
<0983>
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
and sleep
<03462> (8804)
in the woods
<03293> (8675) <03264>_.
And I will make
<05414> (8804)
them and the places round about
<05439>
my hill
<01389>
a blessing
<01293>_;
and I will cause the shower
<01653>
to come down
<03381> (8689)
in his season
<06256>_;
there shall be showers
<01653>
of blessing
<01293>_.
And the tree
<06086>
of the field
<07704>
shall yield
<05414> (8804)
her fruit
<06529>_,
and the earth
<0776>
shall yield
<05414> (8799)
her increase
<02981>_,
and they shall be safe
<0983>
in their land
<0127>_,
and shall know
<03045> (8804)
that I [am] the LORD
<03068>_,
when I have broken
<07665> (8800)
the bands
<04133>
of their yoke
<05923>_,
and delivered
<05337> (8689)
them out of the hand
<03027>
of those that served
<05647> (8802)
themselves of them.
And they shall no more be a prey
<0957>
to the heathen
<01471>_,
neither shall the beast
<02416>
of the land
<0776>
devour
<0398> (8799)
them; but they shall dwell
<03427> (8804)
safely
<0983>_,
and none shall make [them] afraid
<02729> (8688)_.
And I will raise up
<06965> (8689)
for them a plant
<04302>
of renown
<08034>_,
and they shall be no more consumed
<0622> (8803)
with hunger
<07458>
in the land
<0776>_,
neither bear
<05375> (8799)
the shame
<03639>
of the heathen
<01471>
any more. {of renown: or, for renown} {consumed: Heb. taken away}
Thus shall they know
<03045> (8804)
that I the LORD
<03068>
their God
<0430>
[am] with them, and [that] they, [even] the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
[are] my people
<05971>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_.
And ye
<0859>
my flock
<06629>_,
the flock
<06629>
of my pasture
<04830>_,
[are] men
<0120>_,
[and] I [am] your God
<0430>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_.
