We have been through a lot of judgment for the last few weeks of reading. Today we get a break from the judgment and we return to the blessing that God promised his people long ago through the covenant he made with Abraham. Blessing will return to Israel and as this happens, the nations will be blessed. It is ion these beautiful chapters that the Messiah is explained as the shepherd that will care for and protect God’s people.
