Woe to the shepherds who mislead and scatter the sheep of my pasture!” and scatter the sheep of my pasture!” This is the message of Yahweh, God of Israel, To the shepherds in charge of my people, ” You have scattered my sheep and driven them away instead of caring for them. Now I will deal with you because of your evil deeds.
I will gather the remnant of my sheep from every land to which I have driven them and I will bring them back to the grasslands. They will be fruitful and increase in number. I will appoint shepherds who will take care of them. No longer will they fear or be terrified. No one will be lost.”
Yahweh further says, ” The day is coming when I will raise up a king who is David’s righteous successor. He will rule wisely and govern with justice and righteousness. That will be a grandiose era when Judah will enjoy peace and Israel will live in safety. He will be called Yahweh- our justice!”
