Zechariah 11:3; Zechariah 11:16; Zechariah 10:3; Jeremiah 22:11; Jeremiah 22:18; Jeremiah 22:24

The sound of lthe wail of lthe shepherds,

for their glory is ruined!

The sound of the roar of mthe lions,

nfor the thicket of the Jordan is ruined!


16 For behold, I am raising up in the land a shepherd dwho does not care for those being destroyed, or seek the young or heal the maimed or nourish the healthy, but edevours the flesh of the fat ones, tearing off even their hoofs.


jMy anger is hot against the shepherds,

and kI will punish the leaders;1

for lthe Lord of hosts cares for his flock, the house of Judah,

and will make them like his majestic steed in battle.


Message to the Sons of Josiah

11 For thus says the Lord concerning Shallum the son of Josiah, king of Judah, who reigned instead of Josiah his father, and mwho went away from this place: He shall return here no more,


18 Therefore thus says the Lord concerning Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah:

wThey shall not lament for him, saying,

xAh, my brother! or Ah, sister!

They shall not lament for him, saying,

yAh, lord! or Ah, his majesty!


24 iAs I live, declares the Lord, though Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, were jthe signet ring on my right hand, yet I would tear you off
