Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brethren, and their flocks, and their [herds], and all that they have, are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land of Goshen.
...for the cattle of the [herds], and for the asses: a...
And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of the [herds], and for the asses: and he fed them with bread for all their cattle for that year.
When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year, and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our money is spent; my lord also hath our [herds] of cattle; there is not ought left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:
And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your [herds] and of your flocks:
Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, or of thy wine, or of thy oil, or the firstlings of thy [herds] or of thy flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewill offerings, or heave offering of thine hand:
And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy [herds] and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.
Also the firstborn of our sons, and of our cattle, as it is written in the law, and the firstlings of our [herds] and of our flocks, to bring to the house of our God, unto the priests that minister in the house of our God:
For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shep[herds] is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.
And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine [herds]: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword.
Howl, ye shep[herds], and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and ye shall fall like a pleasant vessel.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, shall be an habitation of shep[herds] causing their flocks to lie down.
My people hath been lost sheep: their shep[herds] have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.
Son of man, prophesy against the shep[herds] of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shep[herds] search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shep[herds]; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shep[herds] feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shep[herds] said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
