Ezekiel 34:22 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 34:22

Therefore will I save my flock
Or redeem my people, as the Targum; that is, by his son, after described, as his shepherd and servant: and they shall no more be a prey:
to Satan the roaring lion; nor to such horned cattle, their persecutors; nor to false teachers, who lie in wait to deceive; nor shall they ever perish, being the sheep of Christ, hand, and under the care of him the shepherd, spoken of in the next verse: and I will judge between cattle and cattle;
between man and man, as the Targum; that is, between good and bad men, the persecutors and the persecuted. (See Gill on Ezekiel 34:17). (See Gill on Ezekiel 34:20).

Ezekiel 34:22 In-Context

20 "Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD to them: Behold, I, I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep.
21 Because you push with side and shoulder, and thrust at all the weak with your horns, till you have scattered them abroad,
22 I will rescue my flock; they shall no longer be a prey. And I will judge between sheep and sheep.
23 And I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd.
24 And I, the LORD, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them. I am the LORD; I have spoken.
