“Therefore, O yee shepheards, heare the word of the Lord.”
King James Version (KJV)
6. My sheepe wandered through all the mountaines, and vpon euery high hill: yea my flocke was scattered vpon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seeke after them. 7. ¶ Therefore, yee shepheards, heare the word of the Lord. 8. As I liue, saith the Lord God, surely because my flocke became a pray, and my flocke became meate to euery beast of the field, because there was no shepheard, neither did my shepheards search for my flocke, but the shepheards fed themselues, and fed not my flocke: 9. Therefore, O yee shepheards, heare the word of the Lord. 10. Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I am against the shepheards, and I will require my flocke at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flocke, neither shall the shepheards feede themselues any more: for I will deliuer my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them. 11. ¶ For thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I, euen I will both search my sheepe, and seeke them out. 12. As a shepheard seeketh out his flocke in the day that hee is among his sheepe that are scattered: so wil I seeke out my sheep, and will deliuer them out of all places, where they haue bene scattered in the cloudie and darke day.
