1 Kings 22:17



17 And he said, I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace.

Commentary on this verse  

By Henry MacLagan

Verse 17. And it is further the dictate of genuine truth concerning the state of the corrupted church, in the judgment, that it is devastated as to the life of genuine charity, because none in that church teach genuine charity. Wherefore it is perceived from Divine Love that good is without truth as a teacher and leader, and yet that everyone in good is distinguished by his own good in which there is peace internally.
