The Righteous Branch

1 1"Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!" declares the LORD. 2 Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning 2the shepherds who care for my people: "You have scattered my flock and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. 3Behold, I will attend to you for your evil deeds, declares the LORD. 3 4Then I will gather the remnant of my flock 5out of all the countries where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, 6and they shall be fruitful and multiply. 4 7I will set shepherds over them who will care for them, and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be missing, declares the LORD 5 8"Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous 9Branch, and 10he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 6 In his days Judah will be saved, and 11Israel will 12dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: 13'The LORD is our righteousness.'
