Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

23:1 pastors. Pastors (i.e., “shepherds”) of God’s spiritual flock, whether in ancient Israel or modern churches, are given great responsibility and can, therefore, earn great rewards if they faithfully feed their flocks on the milk and meat of God’s Word (note I Timothy 5:17); but they will be subject to great judgment if they feed them false doctrine or meaningless platitudes (Jeremiah 23:11-19; 30-32).
