Jehovah. The "I Am. "
"All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
All you beasts of the field, All you beasts in the forest, Come to eat.
For the shepherds have become stupid And have not sought the LORD; Therefore they have not prospered, And all their flock is scattered.
"Many shepherds have ruined My vineyard, They have trampled down My field; They have made My pleasant field A desolate wilderness.
But if you will not listen to it, My soul will sob in secret for such pride; And my eyes will bitterly weep And flow down with tears, Because the flock of the LORD has been taken captive.
"The wind will sweep away all your shepherds, And your lovers will go into captivity; Then you will surely be ashamed and humiliated Because of all your wickedness.
"My people have become lost sheep; Their shepherds have led them astray. They have made them turn aside on the mountains; They have gone along from mountain to hill And have forgotten their resting place.
