"I, the Sovereign lord, tell you that i myself will look for my sheep. I will bring them back from foreign countries, gather them together and take them back to their own land."
"I will lead them back to the mountains and the streams of Israel. i will look for those that are lost, bring back those that wander off, and heal those that are sick; but those that are fat and strong i will destroy."
"Now then my flock,i, the sovereign lord tell you that i will judge each of you and separate the good from the bad the sheep from the goats."
Ezekiel was telling the Sovereign Lord's plan for the Israelite's
"So now i will judge between you. If you pushed aside the sick and butted them away from the flock. i will rescue them and not let them be mistreated anymore. i will give them a king like my servant David and he will be their shepherd."
get out of the way you filthy creatures!
God is leading the Israelite's back to Israel were they will be safe and happy.
"I will make a covenant that guarantees their safety, i will bless them and let them live around my sacred hill everyone will live in safety."
Ezekiel separated the good people that are selfless and faithful and the bad people, the people that are greedy and celebrate idols from each other
"The heathen nations will not plunder you any more, Everyone will know that I protect the people of Israel. I, the sovereign lord have spoken."
"God saved us again!'
Ezekiel continued separating the people and told them what he would do with them.
Ezekiel told the people were they would live and what God would give them
Ezekiel told the people that God would protect them from invading armies and that all people would know that God would protect Israel
