    King James Bible - Zechariah 11:16

    For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.

    World English Bible

    For, behold, I will raise up a shepherd in the
    land, who will not visit those who are cut off, neither will seek those who are scattered, nor heal that which is broken, nor feed that which is sound; but he will eat the flesh of the fat sheep, and will tear their hoofs in pieces.

    Douay-Rheims - Zechariah 11:16

    For behold I will raise up a shepherd in the
    land, who shall not visit what is forsaken, nor seek what is scattered, nor heal what is broken, nor nourish that which standeth, and he shall eat the flesh of the fat ones, and break their hoofs.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    For lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the
    land, who shall not visit those that are cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that which is broken, nor feed that which standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:16

    porque he aquí, que yo levanto pastor en la tierra, que no visitará las perdidas, no buscará la pequeña, no curará la perniquebrada, ni llevará la cansada a cuestas; sino que se comerá la carne de la gruesa, y romperá sus uñas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 11:16

    Verse 16. I will raise up a
    shepherd in the land] Some wicked king; and Newcome supposes Hoshea may be meant. See 2 Kings xvii. 1, 2, and to such an abominable sovereign the prophecy may well apply.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. For, lo, I will raise up a
    shepherd in the land , etc.] Not in the land of Judea, but in the Roman empire; and so not Herod, nor King Agrippa, as Kimchi; nor Antiochus Epiphanes, as others; nor those wicked priests and princes, who governed after the times of Zechariah; nor the Scribes and Pharisees in Christ’s times, though they are often called fools by him, and were truly foolish shepherds; nor even Titus Vespasian, who destroyed the city and temple; nor Bar Cozba, who set up for the Messiah, and was a false one; or any other of that sort. Calmet thinks this designs the Roman emperors, successors of Tiberius, under whom Jesus Christ was crucified. Caligula succeeded Tiberius. Claudius Caligula, and Nero succeeded Claudius: everyone knows (adds he) the characters of those princes, that they were truly foolish shepherds, mad, wicked, and cruel: but rather it intends shepherd, or shepherds, not in a civil, but in an ecclesiastic sense; all such after Christ, who took upon them this office, but did not perform it aright, as heretics, false teachers, with which the first ages abounded; and especially it points at the bishop of Rome, and all under him, when he fell off from the true doctrine and discipline of the Gospel, the man of sin, or antichrist, as Jerom rightly observes; who, though his coming is according to the working of Satan, yet may be said to be raised up by the Lord, because he suffered him to rise; and by his secret providence, and wise ordination in righteous judgment, he came to the height of his power: with him agrees the name of a “shepherd”; he calls himself the vicar of Christ, the chief shepherd and bishop of souls; Peter’s successor, who was ordered to feed the sheep and lambs of Christ; and universal pastor, and a single one, that will not admit of any associate. The character of a “foolish” one belongs to him, though he would be thought to be wise; nor is he wanting in wicked craft and cunning, but ignorant of the pastoral office, and how to feed the church of God; and is a wicked or evil shepherd, as the word used is pretty much the same in sound with our English word “evil”: he governing the flock, not with and according to the word of God, but according to his own will and laws; for his “instruments” are laws of his own making, an exercise of tyrannical power over kings and princes, unwritten traditions, pardons, indulgences, etc.: [which] shall not visit those that be cut off ; not that cut off themselves, or are cut off by the church; but such that go astray, wander from the fold, and are in danger of being lost; twdbwa , that are perishing, as Jarchi explains the word; these he looks not after, nor has he any regard to their spiritual and eternal welfare: neither shall seek the young one ; the lamb, the tender of the flock; he will not do as the good shepherd does, carry the lambs in his arms, ( Isaiah 40:11) or, “that which wanders” f261 ; that strays from the fold, and out of the pastures, or the right way: nor heal that that is broken ; that is of a broken and of a contrite spirit; or whose bones are broken, and consciences wounded, through falls into sin: nor feed that that standeth still ; that can not move from its place to get fresh pasture, but is obliged to stay where it is, and needs supply and support there: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat ; that is, as the Targum well explains it, “shall spoil the substance of the rich;” (see Revelation 18:3,7): and tear their claws in pieces ; take all their power and privileges from them; all which well agrees with the pope of Rome.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
