Ezekiel 34:11-24

CEB 11 The LORD God proclaims: I myself will search for my flock and seek them out. NRS 11 For thus says the Lord God: I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out. CEB 12 As a shepherd seeks out the flock when some in the flock have been scattered, so will I seek out my flock. I will rescue them from all the places where they were scattered during the time of clouds and thick darkness. NRS 12 As shepherds seek out their flocks when they are among their scattered sheep, so I will seek out my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places to which they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness. CEB 13 I will gather and lead them out from the countries and peoples, and I will bring them to their own fertile land. I will feed them on Israel's highlands, along the riverbeds, and in all the inhabited places. NRS 13 I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land; and I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the watercourses, and in all the inhabited parts of the land. CEB 14 I will feed them in good pasture, and their sheepfold will be there, on Israel's lofty highlands. On Israel's highlands, they will lie down in a secure fold and feed on green pastures. NRS 14 I will feed them with good pasture, and the mountain heights of Israel shall be their pasture; there they shall lie down in good grazing land, and they shall feed on rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. CEB 15 I myself will feed my flock and make them lie down. This is what the LORD God says. NRS 15 I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I will make them lie down, says the Lord God. CEB 16 I will seek out the lost, bring back the strays, bind up the wounded, and strengthen the weak. But the fat and the strong I will destroy, because I will tend my sheep with justice. NRS 16 I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, but the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them with justice. CEB 17 As for you, my flock, the LORD God proclaims: I will judge between the rams and the bucks among the sheep and the goats. NRS 17 As for you, my flock, thus says the Lord God: I shall judge between sheep and sheep, between rams and goats: CEB 18 Is feeding in good pasture or drinking clear water such a trivial thing that you should trample and muddy what is left with your feet? NRS 18 Is it not enough for you to feed on the good pasture, but you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pasture? When you drink of clear water, must you foul the rest with your feet? CEB 19 But now my flock must feed on what your feet have trampled and drink water that your feet have muddied. NRS 19 And must my sheep eat what you have trodden with your feet, and drink what you have fouled with your feet? CEB 20 So the LORD God proclaims to them: I will judge between the fat and the lean sheep. NRS 20 Therefore, thus says the Lord God to them: I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep. CEB 21 You shove with shoulder and flank, and with your horns you ram all the weak sheep until you've scattered them outside. NRS 21 Because you pushed with flank and shoulder, and butted at all the weak animals with your horns until you scattered them far and wide, CEB 22 But I will rescue my flock so that they will never again be prey. I will even judge between the sheep! NRS 22 I will save my flock, and they shall no longer be ravaged; and I will judge between sheep and sheep. CEB 23 I will appoint for them a single shepherd, and he will feed them. My servant David will feed them. He will be their shepherd. NRS 23 I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd. CEB 24 I, the LORD, will be their God, and my servant David will be their prince. I, the LORD, have spoken. NRS 24 And I, the Lord, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them; I, the Lord, have spoken.
