Zec 11:15 Then the LORD said to me, "Take once more the implements of a worthless shepherd.
Zec 11:16 For lo, I am raising up in the land a shepherd who does not care for the perishing, or seek the wandering, or heal the maimed, or nourish the sound, but devours the flesh of the fat ones, tearing off even their hoofs.
Zec 11:17 Woe to my worthless shepherd, who deserts the flock! May the sword smite his arm and his right eye! Let his arm be wholly withered, his right eye utterly blinded!"
It seems to me, this was written by Zechariah about himself. He felt YHWH told him to be a metaphorical shepherd (ie: a prophet?) who was then "defeated," b/c he could not reconcile Judah with Israel. Then YHWH said he would raise up another "shepherd" "who does not care for the perishing, or seek the wandering, or heal the maimed, or nourish the sound, but devours the flesh of the fat ones, tearing off even their hoofs."
Surely you do not believe this refers to Jesus?
Lord said:" take once more the implements of the worthless shepherd". and then describes who that worthless shepherd is: someone who dos not care for the perishing, or seek the wandering or heal the maimed or nourish the sound". Or another translation: "Take again for yourself the equipment of a foolish shepherd. For Behold I am going to raise up a shepherd in the leand who will not care for the perishing, seek the scattered, heal the broken or sustain the one standing, but will devous the flesss of the fat sheep and tear off their hoofs".
But then He goes on to say: Woe to the worthless shepherd Who leaves the flock!
You just proved to me that leadership rejects the Good shepherd and accepts: the foolish or worthless who doesn't care for the perishing or heals the maimed and who will only bring harm to his flock. (Simon bar Cochba) comes to mind. Thank you for proving me my own point.
