Prophecy Concerning Israel's Shepherds And Sheep

3 The milk, ye do eat And with the wool, ye do clothe your- selves, The well-fed, ye do sacrifice, The flock, ye do not tend 4 The weak, have ye not strengthened And, the sick, have ye not healed. And the torn, have ye not hound up, And that which was driven out, have ye not brought back, And that which was straying, have ye not sought out; But with force, have ye ruled them and with rigour. 5 And they were scattered, because there was no shepherd; And they became food for every wild beast of the field. So were they scattered.
