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 saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle.
21 Because ye have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed all the diseased with your horns, till ye have scattered them abroad;
22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.
23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
24 And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.
