    King James Bible - Zechariah 11:3

    There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is spoiled.

    World English Bible

    A
    voice of the wailing of the shepherds! For their glory is destroyed: a voice of the roaring of young lions! For the pride of the Jordan is ruined.

    Douay-Rheims - Zechariah 11:3

    The
    voice of the howling of the shepherds, because their glory is laid waste: the voice of the roaring of the lions, because the pride of the Jordan is spoiled.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    There is a
    voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is destroyed: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is laid waste.

    Original Hebrew

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:3

    Voz de aullido de pastores se oyó , porque su magnificencia es asolada; estruendo de bramidos de cachorros de leones, porque la soberbia del Jordán es destruida.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 11:3

    Verse 3. Young
    lions] Princes and rulers. By shepherds, kings or priests may be intended.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 3. [There is] a
    voice of the howling of the shepherds , etc.] Which may be understood either of the civil rulers among the Jews, who now lose their honour and their riches; and so the Targum, Jarchi, and Aben Ezra, interpret it of kings; or of the ecclesiastical rulers, the elders of the people, the Scribes and Pharisees: for their glory is spoiled ; their power and authority; their riches and wealth; their places of honour and profit; their offices, posts, and employments, whether in civil or religious matters, are taken from them, and they are deprived of them: a voice of the roaring of young lions ; of princes, comparable to them for their power, tyranny, and cruelty: the Targum is, “their roaring is as the roaring of young lions:” for the pride of Jordan is spoiled ; a place where lions and their young ones resorted, as Jarchi observes; (see Gill on “ Jeremiah 49:19”). Jordan is here put for the whole land of Judea now wasted, and so its pride and glory gone; as if the waters of Jordan were dried up, the pride and glory of that, and which it showed when its waters swelled and overflowed; hence called by Pliny “ambitiosus amnis”, a haughty and ambitious swelling river.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-3 - In figurative expressions, that
    destruction of Jerusalem, and of the Jewish church and nation, is foretold, which our Lord Jesus, when the time was at hand, prophesied plainly and expressly. How can the fi trees stand, if the cedars fall? The falls of the wise and good int sin, and the falls of the rich and great into trouble, are loud alarm to those every way their inferiors. It is sad with a people, when thos who should be as shepherds to them, are as young lions. The pride of Jordan was the thickets on the banks; and when the river overflowed the banks, the lions came up from them roaring. Thus the doom of Jerusale may alarm other churches.
