Ye Shepherds

Son of man, prophesy against the
shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say
unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD
unto the shepherds; Woe be to the
shepherds of Israel that do feed
themselves! should not the shepherds
feed the flocks?
Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with
the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye
feed not the flock.
The diseased have ye not strengthened,
neither have ye healed that which was
sick, neither have ye bound up that
which was broken, neither have ye
brought again that which was driven
away, neither have ye sought that which
was lost; but with force and with cruelty
have ye ruled them.
And they were scattered, because there
is no shepherd: and they became meat
to all the beasts of the field, when they
were scattered.
My sheep wandered through all the
mountains, and upon every high hill:
yea, my flock was scattered upon all the
face of the earth, and none did search
or seek after them.
Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word
of the LORD;
As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely
because my flock became a prey, and
my flock became meat to every beast of
the field, because there was no
shepherd, neither did my shepherds
search for my flock, but the shepherds
fed themselves, and fed not my flock;
Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the
word of the LORD;
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am
against the shepherds; and I will require
my flock at their hand, and cause them
to cease from feeding the flock; neither
shall the shepherds feed themselves
any more; for I will deliver my flock from
their mouth, that they may not be meat
for them.
Ezekiel 34:2-10
