Restoration of Judah and Israel

10 Ask rain from the Lord
    in the season of the spring rain,
from the Lord who makes the storm-clouds,
    who gives showers of rain to you,[a]
    the vegetation in the field to everyone.
For the teraphim[b] utter nonsense,
    and the diviners see lies;
the dreamers tell false dreams,
    and give empty consolation.
Therefore the people wander like sheep;
    they suffer for lack of a shepherd.

My anger is hot against the shepherds,
    and I will punish the leaders;[c]
for the Lord of hosts cares for his flock, the house of Judah,
    and will make them like his proud warhorse.
