Book of the Prophet Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-17

34:11 For thus says the Lord God: Behold, I myself will seek my sheep, and I myself will visit them.
34:12 Just as a shepherd visits his flock, in the day when he will be in the midst of his sheep that were scattered, so will I visit my sheep. And I will deliver them from all the places to which they had been scattered in the day of gloom and darkness.
34:15 I will feed my sheep, and I will cause them to lie down, says the Lord God.
34:16 I will seek what had been lost. And I will lead back again what had been cast aside. And I will bind up what had been broken. And I will strengthen what had been infirm. And I will preserve what was fat and strong. And I will feed them on judgment.
34:17 But as for you, O my flocks, thus says the Lord God: Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, among rams and among he-goats.
