Bible: Jer 23:1-4

New Leaders over a Regathered Remnant

23:1 The Lord says, 1 The leaders of my people are sure to be judged. 2  They were supposed to watch over my people like shepherds watch over their sheep. But they are causing my people to be destroyed and scattered. 3  23:2 So the Lord God of Israel has this to say about the leaders who are ruling over his people: “You have caused my people 4  to be dispersed and driven into exile. You have not taken care of them. So I will punish you for the evil that you have done. 5  I, the Lord, affirm it! 6  23:3 Then I myself will regather those of my people 7  who are still alive from all the countries where I have driven them. I will bring them back to their homeland. 8  They will greatly increase in number. 23:4 I will install rulers 9  over them who will care for them. Then they will no longer need to fear or be terrified. None of them will turn up missing. 10  I, the Lord, promise it! 11
