    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 23:4

    Shepherds - Men like Ezra, Nehemiah, and the Maccabees, raised up especially by God. It is a revocation of the promise made to David 2 Samuel 7:12-16 so far as the earthly throne was concerned.

    They shall fear no more ... - The effect of good government will be general security.

    Neither shall they be lacking - Not one sheep shall be missing or lost.
