Then I took my staff called Favor1 and broke it, revoking2 the covenant I had made with all the nations.
It was revoked on that day, and so the afflicted of the flock who were watching me knew it was the word of the LORD.
I told them, "If you think it best, give me my pay; but if not, keep it." So they paid me thirty pieces of silver.313
And the LORD said to me, "Throw it to the potter"--the handsome price at which they priced me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver4 and threw them into the house of the LORD to the potter.514
Then I broke my second staff called Union, breaking the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.
Then the LORD said to me, "Take again the equipment of a foolish shepherd.
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.
