“Woe (judgment is coming) to the worthless and foolish shepherd Who deserts the flock! The sword will strike his arm And his right eye! His arm shall be totally withered And his right eye completely blinded.”
“·How terrible it will be for [L Woe to] the ·useless [worthless] shepherd who abandoned the flock. A sword will strike his arm and his right eye. His arm will ·lose all its strength [wither away], and his right eye will go blind.”
Hoy (woe) to the worthless ro’eh (shepherd) that deserteth the tzon! May the cherev (sword) be upon his zero’a (arm), and upon his right eye; let his zero’a wither away, and his right eye be utterly extinguished.
Watch out, worthless shepherd who abandons the flock! You will be made defenseless. May the sword strike his right arm and pierce his right eye! May his arm hang limp at his side so he has no strength, and may his right eye be forever blinded so he can’t shoot an arrow!
A! the shepherd, and idol, forsaking the flock; sword on his arm, and on his right eye; the arm of him shall be dried with dryness, and his right eye waxing dark shall be made dark. (O! the idle shepherd, deserting his flock; the sword shall fall upon his arm, and upon his right eye; and his arm shall be dried up with dryness, and his right eye growing dark shall be made dark, or shall go blind.)
