11  nHe will tend his flock like a shepherd;

ohe will gather the lambs in his arms;

phe will carry them in his bosom,

and gently lead those that are with young.


12 As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his sheep that have been scattered, so will I seek out my sheep, and I will rescue them from all places where they have been scattered on ya day of clouds and zthick darkness.


23 And oI will set up over them one shepherd, pmy servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd.


24 My servant wDavid xshall be king over them, and they shall all have yone shepherd. zThey shall walk in my rules and be careful to obey my statutes.


The Shepherd Struck

Awake, O sword, against qmy shepherd,

against the man who stands next to me,

declares the Lord of hosts.

rStrike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered;

I will turn my hand against the little ones.


Benediction

20 Now dmay the God of peace ewho brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, fthe great shepherd of the sheep, by gthe blood of the eternal covenant,


25 For iyou were straying like sheep, but have now returned to jthe Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.


And when tthe chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the uunfading vcrown of glory.

The Lord Is My Shepherd

A Psalm of David.

23  The Lord is my dshepherd; I shall not ewant.


17  For the Lamb in the midst of the throne rwill be their shepherd,

and he will guide them to springs of sliving water,

and tGod will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
