17 “As for you, My flock, thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I will (A)judge between one [a]sheep and another, between the rams and the male goats. 18 Is it too (B)slight a thing for you that you should feed in the good pasture, that you must tread down with your feet the rest of your pastures? Or that you should drink of the clear waters, that you must [b]foul the rest with your feet? 19 As for My flock, they must eat what you tread down with your feet and drink what you [c]foul with your feet!’”

20 Therefore, thus says the Lord God to them, “Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep. 21 Because you push with side and with shoulder, and (C)thrust at all the [d]weak with your horns until you have scattered them [e]abroad, 22 therefore, I will (D)deliver My flock, and they will no longer be a prey; and I will judge between one sheep and another.
