Israel's Shepherds: Good And Bad

7 And I shepherded the flock [doomed] to slaughter, even the afflicted of the flock. I took two staffs, one I called Kindness, and the other I called Unity, and I shepherded the flock. 8 And I got rid of three shepherds in one month, for {I grew impatient} with them, and {they also became tired of me}. 9 So I said, "I will not shepherd you! The [one] dying will die, and the [one] to be destroyed will be destroyed. And the [ones] remaining, let them devour {the flesh of each other}."
