Psalms 23:1-6

1 A Psalm of David. Jehovah is my Shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of Jehovah forever.

Jeremiah 50:6

6 My people have been lost sheep; their shepherds have caused them to go astray; they have turned them away on the mountains. They have gone from mountain to hill; they have forgotten their resting place.

Ezekiel 34:1-31

1 And the Word of Jehovah came to me, saying, 2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel. Prophesy and say to them, So says the Lord Jehovah to the shepherds: Woe to the shepherds of Israel who feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks? 3 You eat the fat and clothe yourselves with the wool; you kill the fat ones, but you do not feed the flock. 4 You have not made the weak strong, nor have you healed the sick, nor have you bound up the broken. You have not brought again those driven away, nor have you sought that which was lost; but you have ruled them with force and with cruelty. 5 And they were scattered for lack of a shepherd. And they became food to all the beasts of the field when they were scattered. 6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains and on every high hill. Yea, My flock was scattered on all the face of the earth, and none searched nor sought for them. 7 Therefore, shepherds, hear the Word of Jehovah: 8 As I live, says the Lord Jehovah, surely because My flock became a prey, and My flock became food to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, nor did My shepherds search for My flock, but the shepherds fed themselves and did not feed My flock, 9 therefore, O shepherds, hear the Word of Jehovah. 10 So says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require My flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock. Nor shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver My flock from their mouth, and they will not be food to devour. 11 For so says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I Myself will search for My sheep and seek them out. 12 As a shepherd seeks out his flock in the day that he is among his scattered sheep, so I will seek out My sheep and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. 13 And I will bring them out from the peoples, and gather them from the lands, and will bring them to their own land and feed them on the mountain of Israel by the rivers, and in all the places of the land where people live. 14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and their fold shall be on the high mountains of Israel. There they shall lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture they shall feed on the mountains of Israel. 15 I will feed My flock, and I will cause them to lie down, says the Lord Jehovah. 16 I will seek the lost, and bring again those driven away, and will bind up the broken, and will strengthen the sick. But I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment. 17 And you, My flock, says the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I judge between lamb and lamb, between rams and he-goats. 18 Is it a small thing to you to have eaten up the good pasture, but you must trample the rest of your pastures with your feet? And to have drunk of the clear waters, but you must foul the rest with your feet? 19 And My flock, they eat what your feet have trampled, and they drink what your feet have fouled. 20 So the Lord Jehovah says this to them: Behold I Myself will even judge between the fat lamb and the lean lamb. 21 Because you have thrust with side and with shoulder, and have pushed all the weak with your horns until you have scattered them to the outside, 22 therefore I will save My flock, and they shall no more be a prey. And I will judge between lamb and lamb. 23 And I will set up one Shepherd over them, and He shall feed them, My servant David. He shall feed them, and He shall be their Shepherd. 24 And I Jehovah will be their God, and My servant David a ruler among them. I Jehovah have spoken. 25 And I will make a covenant of peace with them, and will send the evil beasts out of the land. And they shall dwell safely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods. 26 And I will make them, and the places around My hill, a blessing; and I will bring down the shower in its season. There shall be showers of blessing. 27 And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase. And they shall be safe in their land, and they shall know that I am Jehovah, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and have delivered them out of the hands of those who enslaved them. 28 And no more shall they be a prey to the nations, nor shall the beast of the land eat them. But they shall dwell safely, and none shall terrify them. 29 And I will raise up for them a noted planting place, and they shall never again be of those gathered by famine in the land, nor shall they bear the shame of the nations any more. 30 And they shall know that I, Jehovah their God, am with them, and they, the house of Israel, are My people, says the Lord Jehovah. 31 And you My sheep, the sheep of My pasture, are men, and I am your God, says the Lord Jehovah.

Matthew 10:16

16 Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves.

Isaiah 53:6

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, each one to his own way; and Jehovah has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Matthew 7:15

15 Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

John 10:1-16

1 Truly, truly, I say to you, He who does not enter into the sheepfold by the door, but going up by another way, that one is a thief and a robber. 2 But he who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The doorkeeper opens to him, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 And when he puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him. For they know his voice. 5 And they will not follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers. 6 Jesus spoke this parable to them, but they did not understand what it was which He spoke to them. 7 Then Jesus said to them again, Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. 8 All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters in by Me, he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 11 I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. 12 But he who is a hireling and not the shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away. And the wolf catches them and scatters the sheep. 13 The hireling flees, because he is a hireling and does not care for the sheep. 14 I am the Good Shepherd, and I know those that are Mine, and I am known by those who are Mine. 15 Even as the Father knows Me, I also know the Father. And I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 And I have other sheep who are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one flock, one Shepherd.

John 10:11

11 I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.

Matthew 9:36

36 But seeing the crowds, He was moved with compassion on them, because they were tired and scattered like sheep having no shepherd.

Luke 15:4-7

4 What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after that which is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost. 7 I say to you that likewise joy shall be in Heaven over one sinner who repents, more than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

Psalms 100:3

3 Know that Jehovah, He is God. He has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
