Zechariah - Chapter 11
FREE Catholic Classes
1 Open your gateways, Lebanon, and the fire shall burn down your cedar trees!
2 Wail, juniper, for the cedar tree has fallen, the majestic ones have been ravaged! Wail, oaks of Bashan, for the impenetrable forest has been felled!
4 Yahweh my God says this, 'Pasture the sheep for slaughter,
6 For I shall show no further pity for the inhabitants of the country -- Yahweh declares! Instead, I shall put everyone into the clutches of a neighbour, into the clutches of the king. They will crush the country and I shall not rescue anyone from their clutches.'
13 Yahweh said to me, 'Throw it to the smelter, this princely sum at which they have valued me!' Taking the thirty shekels of silver, I threw them into the Temple of Yahweh, for the smelter.
14 I then broke my second staff, 'Couplers,' in half, to rupture the brotherly relationship between Judah and Israel.
15 Next, Yahweh said to me, 'This time, take the gear of a good-for-nothing shepherd.
16 For I am now going to raise a shepherd in this country, who will not bother about the lost, who will not go in search of the stray, who will not heal the injured, who will not support the swollen, but who will eat the meat of the fat ones, tearing off their very hoofs.
