Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.
He shall gather
A broken reed he shall not break, and bedimmed flax shall he not quench it: he shall bring forth judgment to truth.
And he will say to him, My lord knew that the children are tender, and the sheep and the oxen bringing forth with me, and they overdrive them one day all the flock will die.
The lost I will seek out, and the thrust away I will turn back, and to the broken I will bind up, and the diseased I will strengthen: and the fat and the strong I will destroy; I will feed them with judgment
Then, when they had dined, Jesus says to Simon Peter, Simon of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He says to him, Yes, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He says to him, Feed my lambs.
1 Corinthians 3:1
And I, brethren, was not able to speak to you as spiritual, but as carnal, as babes in Christ.
