Abdicating Oaths, Harming the Sick, Ruling Harshly and Brutally

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Tue, Jul 6, 2010 - 5:10 pm

The word of the LORD came to me:

Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of [the people]; prophesy and say to them: "This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Woe to the shepherds of [the people] who only take care of themselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock?

"You eat the [finest foods], clothe yourselves with the [finest clothing] and slaughter the choice animals, but you do not take care of the flock.

"You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally."
