    Definitions for Ezekiel 34:6

    Yea - Yes; certainly.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 34:6

    My sheep wandered through all the mountains - They all became idolaters, and lost the knowledge of the true God. And could it be otherwise while they had such pastors?

    "Himself a wanderer from the narrow way;

    His silly sheep, no wonder that they stray!"

    Reader, if thou be a minister, a preacher, or a person in holy orders, or pretended holy orders, or art one pretending to holy orders, look at the qualifications of a good shepherd as laid down by the prophet.

    1. He professes to be a shepherd, and to be qualified for the office.

    2. In consequence he undertakes the care of a flock. This supposes that he believes the great Bishop of souls has called him to the pastoral office; and that office implies that he is to give all diligence to save the souls of them that hear him.

    His Qualifications

    1. He is skillful; he knows the disease of sin and its consequences; for the Eternal Spirit, by whom he is called, has convinced him of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.

    2. He knows well the great remedy for this disease, the passion and sacrificial death of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    3. He is skillful, and knows how to apply this remedy.

    4. The flock over which he watches is, in its individuals, either, -

    1. Healthy and sound.

    2. Or, in a state of convalescence, returning to health.

    3. Or, still under the whole power of the general disease.
