And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

11:7 two staves. The ancient Semitic shepherd commonly had two staves, one for driving off wild beasts attacking his flock, the other to help guide the sheep through difficult places. This Good Shepherd, however, cares for His sheep with a staff named “Beauty” (literally “grace,” by which He keeps them safe from their enemies) and one named “Bands” (by which He keeps His true flock united in Him).
