for the stately forest has fallen!

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 11:3 -

for their glory is destroyed.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 11:4 -

The Lord my God says this: “Shepherd the flock intended for slaughter.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 11:5 -

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 11:6 -

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 11:16 -

“I am about to raise up a shepherd in the land who will not care for those who are perishing, and he will not seek the lost[fn] or heal the broken. He will not sustain the healthy,[fn] but he will devour the flesh of the fat sheep and tear off their hooves.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 11:17 -

“Woe to the worthless shepherd

who deserts the flock!

May a sword strike[fn] his arm

and his right eye!

May his arm wither away

and his right eye go completely blind! ”
