11 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage Biblia Hebraica

4These were the words of the LORD my God: Fatten the flock for slaughter. The two shepherds. Zch.11.4-17כֹּה אָמַר יְהוָה אֱלֹהָי רְעֵה אֶת־צֹאן הַהֲרֵגָה׃
5Those who buy will slaughter it and incur no guilt; those who sell will say, 'Blessed be the LORD, I am rich!' Its shepherds will have no pity for it.  אֲשֶׁר קֹנֵיהֶן יַהֲרְגֻן וְלֹא יֶאְשָׁמוּ וּמֹכְרֵיהֶן יֹאמַר בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה וַאעְשִׁר וְרֹעֵיהֶם לֹא יַחְמֹול עֲלֵיהֶן׃
6For I will never again pity the inhabitants of the earth, says the LORD. I will put every man in the power of his neighbour and his king, and as each country is crushed I will not rescue him from their hands.

 כִּי לֹא אֶחְמֹול עֹוד עַל־יֹשְׁבֵי הָאָרֶץ נְאֻם־יְהוָה וְהִנֵּה אָנֹכִי מַמְצִיא אֶת־הָאָדָם אִישׁ בְּיַד־רֵעֵהוּ וּבְיַד מַלְכֹּו וְכִתְּתוּ אֶת־הָאָרֶץ וְלֹא אַצִּיל מִיָּדָם׃
7So I fattened the flock for slaughter for the dealers. I took two staves: one I called Favour and the other Union, and so I fattened the flock.  וָאֶרְעֶה אֶת־צֹאן הַהֲרֵגָה לָכֵן עֲנִיֵּי הַצֹּאן וָאֶקַּח־לִי שְׁנֵי מַקְלֹות לְאַחַד קָרָאתִי נֹעַם וּלְאַחַד קָרָאתִי חֹבְלִים וָאֶרְעֶה אֶת־הַצֹּאן׃
8In one month I got rid of the three shepherds, for I had lost patience with them and they had come to abhor me.  וָאַכְחִד אֶת־שְׁלֹשֶׁת הָרֹעִים בְּיֶרַח אֶחָד וַתִּקְצַר נַפְשִׁי בָּהֶם וְגַם־נַפְשָׁם בָּחֲלָה בִי׃
9Then I said to the flock, 'I will not fatten you any more. Any that are to die, let them die; any that stray, let them stray; and the rest can devour one another.'  וָאֹמַר לֹא אֶרְעֶה אֶתְכֶם הַמֵּתָה תָמוּת וְהַנִּכְחֶדֶת תִּכָּחֵד וְהַנִּשְׁאָרֹות תֹּאכַלְנָה אִשָּׁה אֶת־בְּשַׂר רְעוּתָהּ׃
10I took my staff called Favour and snapped it in two, annulling the covenant which the LORD the LORD: prob. rdg, Heb I had made with all nations.  וָאֶקַּח אֶת־מַקְלִי אֶת־נֹעַם וָאֶגְדַּע אֹתֹו לְהָפֵיר אֶת־בְּרִיתִי אֲשֶׁר כָּרַתִּי אֶת־כָּל־הָעַמִּים׃
11So it was annulled that day, and the dealers who were watching me knew that all this was the word of the LORD.  וַתֻּפַר בַּיֹּום הַהוּא וַיֵּדְעוּ כֵן עֲנִיֵּי הַצֹּאן הַשֹּׁמְרִים אֹתִי כִּי דְבַר־יְהוָה הוּא׃
12I said to them, 'If it suits you, give me my wages; otherwise keep them.' Then they weighed out my wages, thirty pieces of silver.  וָאֹמַר אֲלֵיהֶם אִם־טֹוב בְּעֵינֵיכֶם הָבוּ שְׂכָרִי וְאִם־לֹא חֲדָלוּ וַיִּשְׁקְלוּ אֶת־שְׂכָרִי שְׁלֹשִׁים כָּסֶף׃
13The LORD said to me. 'Throw it into the treasury.' I took the thirty pieces of silver—that noble sum at which I was valued and rejected by them!—and threw them into the house of the LORD, into the treasury.  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֵלַי הַשְׁלִיכֵהוּ אֶל־הַיֹּוצֵר אֶדֶר הַיְקָר אֲשֶׁר יָקַרְתִּי מֵעֲלֵיהֶם וָאֶקְחָה שְׁלֹשִׁים הַכֶּסֶף וָאַשְׁלִיךְ אֹתֹו בֵּית יְהוָה אֶל־הַיֹּוצֵר׃
14Then I snapped in two my second staff called Union, annulling the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.  וָאֶגְדַּע אֶת־מַקְלִי הַשֵּׁנִי אֵת הַחֹבְלִים לְהָפֵר אֶת־הָאַחֲוָה בֵּין יְהוּדָה וּבֵין יִשְׂרָאֵל׃ ס
15Then the LORD said to me, Equip yourself again as a shepherd, a worthless one;  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֵלָי עֹוד קַח־לְךָ כְּלִי רֹעֶה אֱוִלִי׃
16for I am about to install a shepherd in the land who will neither miss any that are lost nor search for those that have gone astray nor heal the injured nor nurse the sickly, but will eat the flesh of the fat beasts and throw away their broken bones.
 כִּי הִנֵּה־אָנֹכִי מֵקִים רֹעֶה בָּאָרֶץ הַנִּכְחָדֹות לֹא־יִפְקֹד הַנַּעַר לֹא־יְבַקֵּשׁ וְהַנִּשְׁבֶּרֶת לֹא יְרַפֵּא הַנִּצָּבָה לֹא יְכַלְכֵּל וּבְשַׂר הַבְּרִיאָה יֹאכַל וּפַרְסֵיהֶן יְפָרֵק׃ ס
17Alas for the worthless shepherd who abandons the sheep!
A sword shall fall on his arm and on his right eye;
his arm shall be shrivelled
and his right eye blinded.
 הֹוי רֹעִי הָאֱלִיל עֹזְבִי הַצֹּאן
חֶרֶב עַל־זְרֹועֹו וְעַל־עֵין יְמִינֹו
זְרֹעֹו יָבֹושׁ תִּיבָשׁ וְעֵין יְמִינֹו כָּהֹה תִכְהֶה׃ ס
