"Woe to the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture!" declares the LORD.
All your lovers have forgotten you, They do not seek you; For I have wounded you with the wound of an enemy, With the punishment of a cruel one, Because your iniquity is great And your sins are numerous.
