Zechariah 11

1 Open thy doors, O Lebanon, and the fire may devour thy cedars.

2 Howl, O fir tree, for the cedar has fallen, because the magnificent are devastated; Howl, O ye oaks of Bashan, for the forest of Bazar* has come·​·down.

3 There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds, for their magnificence is devastated; there is a voice of the roaring of young·​·lions, for the pride of the Jordan is devastated.

4 Thus says Jehovah my God: Pasture the flock of the slaughter,

5 whose buyers kill them, and hold· not themselves ·as·​·guilty; and those who sell them say, Blessed be Jehovah, and I am·​·rich; and their own shepherds pity them not.

6 For I will not have·​·pity any·​·more over those dwelling in the land, says Jehovah; but, behold, I will make man to be found, a man given into the hand of his companion, and into the hand of his king; and they shall beat·​·down the land, and from their hand I will not rescue them.

7 And I pastured the flock of the slaughter on account of you, O afflicted of the flock. And I took for myself two sticks: the one I called Pleasantness, and the other one I called Cords; and I pastured the flock.

8 And I cut·​·off the three shepherds in one month, and My soul cut· them ·short, and their soul also abhorred Me.

9 And I said, I will not shepherd you. That which dies, let it die, and that which is to be cut·​·off, let it be cut·​·off. And let those who are left eat, a woman the flesh of her companion.

10 And I took My stick, Pleasantness, and hewed· it ·off, to make· My covenant ·of·​·none·​·effect, which I had cut with all the peoples.

11 And it was made·​·of·​·none·​·effect in that day; and so the afflicted of the flock that kept·​·watch·​·on Me knew that it was the word of Jehovah.

12 And I said to them, If it is good in your eyes, give me my wage; and if not, forbear. And they weighed My wage, thirty pieces of silver.

13 And Jehovah said to me, Cast it to the potter—a magnificent price that I was·​·priced among them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast it into the house of Jehovah to the potter.

14 And I hewed·​·off My second stick, Cords, to make·​·of·​·none·​·effect the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.

15 And Jehovah said to me, Take for thyself yet·​·again the instruments of a stupid shepherd.

16 For, behold, I will raise·​·up a shepherd in the land; those who are cut·​·off he will not visit; the lad he will not seek, and the broken he will not heal; he who stands·​·up he will not sustain, but he shall eat the flesh of the nourished and pull·​·off their hoofs.

17 Woe to the shepherd of a vain·​·god, forsaking the flock! The sword shall be against his arm, and against his right eye; his arm drying·​·up shall be·​·dried·​·up, and his right eye dimming shall be·​·dim.
