- Oh, this has some lovely verses about God's care for us.

- And hope of a future and a future king.

- Breaking the bars of captivity.

- God loves them, this is a mostly-lovely chapter.

'This is what the Lord God says: I, myself, will search for my sheep and take care of them.
12 As a shepherd takes care of his scattered flock when it is found, I will take care of my sheep. I will save them from all the places where they were scattered on a cloudy and dark day.
13 I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries. I will bring them to their own land and pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines, and in all the places where people live in the land.
14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and they will eat grass on the high mountains of Israel. They will lie down on good ground where they eat grass, and they will eat in rich grassland on the mountains of Israel.
15 I will feed my flock and lead them to rest, says the Lord God.
16 I will search for the lost, bring back those that strayed away, put bandages on those that were hurt, and make the weak strong.

"'I will make an agreement of peace with my sheep and will remove harmful animals from the land.

Then they will know that I am the Lord when I break the bars of their captivity and save them from the power of those who made them slaves.
28 They will not be led captive by the nations again. The wild animals will not eat them, but they will live safely, and no one will make them afraid.
