Ezekiel 34:1-31, NLT
The Shepherds of Israel
1Then this message came to me from the Lord:
7“Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord:
The Good Shepherd
11“For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will search and find my sheep.
17“And as for you, my flock, this is what the Sovereign Lord says to his people: I will judge between one animal of the flock and another, separating the sheep from the goats.
20“Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will surely judge between the fat sheep and the scrawny sheep.
The Lord’s Covenant of Peace
25“I will make a covenant of peace with my people and drive away the dangerous animals from the land. Then they will be able to camp safely in the wildest places and sleep in the woods without fear.
29“And I will make their land famous for its crops, so my people will never again suffer from famines or the insults of foreign nations.
