King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
15 And the LORD said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd . 15 Then the LORD said to me, "Take again the equipment of a foolish shepherd.
16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off , neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken , nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces . 16 For I am going to raise up a shepherd over the land who will not care for the lost, or seek the young, or heal the injured, or feed the healthy, but will eat the meat of the choice sheep, tearing off their hoofs.
17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up , and his right eye shall be utterly darkened . 17 "Woe to the worthless shepherd, who deserts the flock! May the sword strike his arm and his right eye! May his arm be completely withered, his right eye totally blinded!" AN ORACLE
