Yahweh judges between the fat and the lean sheep (Ezek 34:20-34:20)

“Therefore,

Thus says Yahweh God

To them.

‘I myself

Will judge the difference

Between the fat sheep

With the lean sheep.’”

Yahweh, their God, was himself going to judge between the fat and the lean sheep. He would judge between the good and the bad sheep, since just being Yahweh’s sheep was not enough.

Yahweh will judge the sheep (Ezek 34:17-34:17)

“Thus says Yahweh God!

‘As for you!

My flock!

I shall judge

Sheep

With sheep.

I shall judge

Rams

With goats.’”

Yahweh, their God, was going to judge between the good sheep and the bad sheep. He was also going to judge between the goats and the rams.
