Good Shepherd Cares for Judah

10 Ask Adonai for rain in spring!
    Adonai makes the storm clouds
and will give rain showers
    and plants of the field to everyone.
The idols utter deceit
        and diviners see lies.
    They relate false dreams
        and comfort in vain.
    Therefore the people wander like sheep,
        afflicted because there is no shepherd.[a]

My anger burns against the shepherds
        and I will punish the leaders.[b]
    Adonai-Tzva’ot cares for His flock,
        the house of Judah.
    He will make them His valiant steed in battle.
