SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:15 Â¶ Y me dijo el SEÑOR: Toma aún los aperos de un pastor loco;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 11:15 Verse 15. The instruments of a foolish shepherd.] Such as a bag without bread, a scrip without measure, and a staff without a hook, &c., things that were needless or of no use; to point out to the Jewish pastors, who took no care of the flock, but devoured them, or ruled them with force and with cruelty.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 15. And the Lord said unto me , etc.] The Prophet Zechariah: Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd ; the meaning is, that the prophet should put on the habit of a shepherd, and take a scrip and staff in his hands, and represent a foolish shepherd, hereafter described.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-17 - God, having showed the misery of this people in their being justly lef by the Good Shepherd, shows their further misery in being abused by foolish shepherds. The description suits the character Christ gives of the scribes and Pharisees. They never do any thing to support the weak or comfort the feeble-minded; but seek their own ease, while they ar barbarous to the flock. The idol shepherd has the garb and appearanc of a shepherd, receives submission, and is supported at much expense but he leaves the flock to perish through neglect, or leads them to ruin by his example. This suits many in different churches and nations but the warning had an awful fulfilment in the Jewish teachers. An while such deceive others to their ruin, they will themselves have the deepest condemnation __________________________________________________________________
