Ezekiel 34:15 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 34:15

I will feed my flock
This is repeated for the further confirmation of it, that it might be depended upon that the Lord would feed his people in the manner before promised; and it gives a reason why he would do it, because they were his flock; he had a right unto them, a property in them; they were separated and distinguished from others by him, as the church of God is; and which is also purchased by Christ, and gathered out of the world by his Spirit and grace; and therefore he will feed them, or take care that they shall be fed, ( Acts 20:28 ) : and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord;
in the good fold provided for them; where they have both rest and safety, and also plenty of suitable food; (See Gill on Ezekiel 34:14). The Targum is,

``I will govern my people, and will cause them to dwell safely, saith the Lord God;''
The Septuagint and Arabic versions add, "and they shall know that I am the Lord".

15 And I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep. I myself will make sure they get plenty of rest.
16 I'll go after the lost, I'll collect the strays, I'll doctor the injured, I'll build up the weak ones and oversee the strong ones so they're not exploited.
17 "'And as for you, my dear flock, I'm stepping in and judging between one sheep and another, between rams and goats.
