King James Bible
Son of man, prophesy10 against the shepherds6 of Israel, prophesy,10 and say1 unto them, Thus saith1 the Lord GOD unto the shepherds;6 Woe [be] to the shepherds6 of Israel that do feed6 themselves! should not the shepherds6 feed4 the flocks?
The diseased12 have ye not strengthened,14 neither have ye healed14 that which was sick,6 neither have ye bound up1 [that which was] broken,12 neither have ye brought again52 that which was driven away,12 neither have ye sought14 that which was lost;6 but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled1 them.
[As] I live, saith7 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,6 neither did my shepherds6 search1 for my flock, but the shepherds6 fed4 themselves, and fed1 not my flock;
Thus saith1 the Lord GOD; Behold, I [am] against the shepherds;6 and I will require1 my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease52 from feeding2 the flock; neither shall the shepherds6 feed4 themselves any more; for I will deliver52 my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
As a shepherd6 seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep [that are] scattered;12 so will I seek out17 my sheep, and will deliver52 them out of all places where they have been scattered8 in the cloudy and dark day.
And I will bring them out52 from the people, and gather14 them from the countries, and will bring52 them to their own land, and feed1 them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
I will feed4 them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie4 in a good fold, and [in] a fat pasture shall they feed4 upon the mountains of Israel.
I will seek17 that which was lost,6 and bring again55 that which was driven away,12 and will bind up4 [that which was] broken,12 and will strengthen17 that which was sick:6 but I will destroy55 the fat and the strong; I will feed4 them with judgment.
[Seemeth it] a small thing unto you to have eaten up4 the good pasture, but ye must tread down4 with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk4 of the deep waters, but ye must foul4 the residue12 with your feet?
And the tree of the field shall yield1 her fruit, and the earth shall yield4 her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know1 that I [am] the LORD, when I have broken2 the bands of their yoke, and delivered52 them out of the hand of those that served6 themselves of them.
