Woe Unto Unfaithful Shepherds

“Woe unto unfaithful shepherds who destroy my sheep,” says God.                              

 “In your negligence you’ve scattered and have driven off my flock.                                               

 Don’t think I’ve not paid attention or your deeds have been ignored.                               

 I myself shall go and seek them and replace you,” says the Lord.


“Hark, the days are surely coming when I’ll raise a righteous branch.                               

 He will reign o’er David’s kingdom, wise and justly in the land.                                                       

Israel shall live in safety; Judah likewise know release.                                                   

And by this name all will call him, “The Lord is our righteousness.”
