31 Now, whenever the Son of Mankind may be coming in His glory, and all the holy messengers with Him, then shall He be seated on the throne of His glory, 32 and in front of Him shall be gathered all the nations. And He shall be severing them from one another even as a shepherd is severing the sheep from the kids. 33 And He shall be standing the sheep, indeed, at His right, yet the kids at the left." 34 Then shall the King be declaring to those at His right, 'Hither, blessed of My Father! Enjoy the allotment of the kingdom made ready for you from the disruption of the world." 35 For I hunger and you give Me to eat' I thirst and you give Me drink; a stranger was I and you took Me in; 36 naked and you clothed Me; infirm am I and you visit Me; in jail was I and you come to Me.' 37 Then the just will be answering Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we perceive Thee hungering and nourish Thee, or thirsting and we give Thee drink? 38 Now when did we perceive Thee a stranger and took Thee in, or naked and we clothed Thee? 39 Now when did we perceive Thee infirm, or in jail, and we came to Thee?'" 40 And, answering, the King shall be declaring to them, 'Verily, I am saying to you, In as much as you do it to one of these, the least of My brethren, you do it to Me.'" 41 Then shall He be declaring to those also at His left, 'Go from Me, you cursed, into the fire eonian, made ready for the Adversary and his messengers." 42 For I hunger and you do not give Me to eat; I thirst and you do not give Me drink; 43 a stranger was I and you did not take Me in; naked and you did not clothe Me; infirm and in jail and you did not visit Me.' 44 Then shall they also be answering, saying, 'Lord, when did we perceive you hungering or thirsting, or a stranger, or naked, or infirm, or in jail, and we did not serve you?'" 45 Then shall He be answering them, saying, 'Verily, I am saying to you, In as much as you do it not to one of these, the least, neither do you it to Me.'" 46 And these shall be coming away into chastening eonian, yet the just into life eonian."

Ezekiel 34:1-24

1 And there is a word of Yahweh unto me, saying, 2 `Son of man, prophesy concerning shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and you have said unto them:To the shepherds, thus said the Lord Yahweh:Woe [to] the shepherds of Israel, Who have been feeding themselves! The flock do not the shepherds feed? 3 The fat you do eat, and the wool you put on, The fed one you slaughter, the flock you feed not." 4 The weak you have not strengthened, And the sick one you have not healed, And the broken you have not bound up, And the driven away have not brought back, And the lost you have not sought, And with might you have ruled them and with rigor." 5 And they are scattered from want of a shepherd, And are for food to every beast of the field, Yea, they are scattered." 6 Go astray do My flock on all the mountains, And on every high hill, And on all the face of the land have My flock been scattered, And there is none inquiring, and none seeking." 7 Therefore, shepherds, hear a word of Yahweh:" 8 I live--an affirmation of the Lord Yahweh, If not, because of My flock being for a prey, Yea, My flock is for food to every beast of the field, Because there is no shepherd, And My shepherds have not sought My flock, And the shepherds do feed themselves, And My flock they have not fed." 9 Therefore, O shepherds, hear a word of Yahweh:" 10 Thus said the Lord Yahweh:Lo, I [am] against the shepherds, And have required My flock from their hand, And caused them to cease from feeding the flock, And no more do the shepherds feed themselves, And I have delivered My flock from their mouth, And they are not to them for food." 11 For thus said the Lord Yahweh:Lo, I--even I, have required My flock, And I have sought it out." 12 As a shepherd's searching of his drove, In the day of his being in the midst of his scattered flock, so I do seek My flock, And have delivered them out of all places, Whither they have been scattered, In a day of cloud and thick darkness." 13 And brought them out from the peoples, And have gathered them from the lands, And brought them unto their own ground, And have fed them on mountains of Israel, By streams, and by all dwellings of the land." 14 With good pasture I do feed them, And on mountains of the high place of Israel is their habitation, There do they lie down in a good habitation, And fat pastures they enjoy on mountains of Israel." 15 I feed My flock, and cause them to lie down, An affirmation of the Lord Yahweh." 16 The lost I seek, and the driven away bring back, And the broken I bind up, and the sick I strengthen, And the fat and the strong I destroy, I feed it with judgment." 17 And you, My flock, thus said the Lord Yahweh:Lo, I am judging between sheep and sheep, Between rams and he-goats." 18 Is it a little thing for you--the good pasture you enjoy, And the remnant of your pasture you tread down with your feet, And a depth of waters you do drink, And the remainder with your feet you trample, 19 And My flock the trodden thing of your feet consumes, And the trampled thing of your feet drinks? 20 Therefore, thus said the Lord Yahweh to them:Lo, I--even I, have judged between fat sheep and lean sheep." 21 Because with side and with shoulder you thrust away, And with your horns push all the diseased, Till you have scattered them to the out-place, 22 And I have given safety to My flock, And they are not any more for prey, And I have judged between sheep and sheep." 23 And have raised up over them one shepherd, And he has fed them--my servant David, He does feed them, and he is their shepherd, 24 And I, Yahweh, I am their Elohim, And My servant David prince in their midst, I, Yahweh, have spoken."

1 {A Davidic Psalm{ Yahweh is my Shepherd; Nothing shall I lack. 2 In verdant oases, He is making me recline; Beside restful waters, He is conducting me." 3 He is restoring my soul; He is guiding me in the routes of righteousness, on account of His Name." 4 Even though I should walk in the ravine of blackest shadow, I shall not fear evil, For You are with me; Your club and Your staff, they are comforting me." 5 You are arranging a table before me in front of my foes; You have sleeked my head with oil; My cup is satiated. 6 Yea, goodness and benignity, they shall pursue me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the House of Yahweh for the length of my days."
