Ezekiel 34:2-10

2 `Son of man, prophesy concerning shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and thou hast said unto them: To the shepherds, thus said the Lord Jehovah: Woe to the shepherds of Israel, Who have been feeding themselves! The flock do not the shepherds feed? 3 The fat ye do eat, and the wool ye put on, The fed one ye slaughter, the flock ye feed not. 4 The weak ye have not strengthened, And the sick one ye have not healed, And the broken ye have not bound up, And the driven away have not brought back, And the lost ye have not sought, And with might ye have ruled them and with rigour. 5 And they are scattered from want of a shepherd, And are for food to every beast of the field, Yea, they are scattered. 6 Go astray do My flock on all the mountains, And on every high hill, And on all the face of the land have My flock been scattered, And there is none inquiring, and none seeking.
7 Therefore, shepherds, hear a word of Jehovah: 8 I live—an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah, If not, because of My flock being for a prey, Yea, My flock is for food to every beast of the field, Because there is no shepherd, And My shepherds have not sought My flock, And the shepherds do feed themselves, And My flock they have not fed. 9 Therefore, O shepherds, hear a word of Jehovah: 10 Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, I am against the shepherds, And have required My flock from their hand, And caused them to cease from feeding the flock, And no more do the shepherds feed themselves, And I have delivered My flock from their mouth, And they are not to them for food.

1 Thessalonians 2:11-12

James 5:14-20

14 is any infirm among you? let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, having anointed him with oil, in the name of the Lord, 15 and the prayer of the faith shall save the distressed one, and the Lord shall raise him up, and if sins he may have committed, they shall be forgiven to him. 16 Be confessing to one another the trespasses, and be praying for one another, that ye may be healed; very strong is a working supplication of a righteous man; 17 Elijah was a man like affected as we, and with prayer he did pray—not to rain, and it did not rain upon the land three years and six months; 18 and again he did pray, and the heaven did give rain, and the land did bring forth her fruit. 19 Brethren, if any among you may go astray from the truth, and any one may turn him back, 20 let him know that he who did turn back a sinner from the straying of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall cover a multitude of sins.

Peter was grieved that he said to him the third time, `Dost thou dearly love me?' and he said to him, `Lord, thou hast known all things; thou dost know that I dearly love thee.' Jesus saith to him, `Feed my sheep;

Romans 12:4-21

4 for as in one body we have many members, and all the members have not the same office, 5 so we, the many, one body are in Christ, and members each one of one another. 6 And having gifts, different according to the grace that was given to us; whether prophecy—`According to the proportion of faith!' 7 or ministration—`In the ministration!' or he who is teaching—`In the teaching!' 8 or he who is exhorting—`In the exhortation!' he who is sharing—`In simplicity!' he who is leading—`In diligence?' he who is doing kindness—`In cheerfulness.' 9 The love unfeigned: abhorring the evil; cleaving to the good; 10 in the love of brethren, to one another kindly affectioned: in the honour going before one another; 11 in the diligence not slothful; in the spirit fervent; the Lord serving; 12 in the hope rejoicing; in the tribulation enduring; in the prayer persevering; 13 to the necessities of the saints communicating; the hospitality pursuing. 14 Bless those persecuting you; bless, and curse not; 15 to rejoice with the rejoicing, and to weep with the weeping, 16 of the same mind one toward another, not minding the high things, but with the lowly going along; become not wise in your own conceit; 17 giving back to no one evil for evil; providing right things before all men. 18 If possible—so far as in you—with all men being in peace; 19 not avenging yourselves, beloved, but give place to the wrath, for it hath been written, `Vengeance is Mine, 20 I will recompense again, saith the Lord;' if, then, thine enemy doth hunger, feed him; if he doth thirst, give him drink; for this doing, coals of fire thou shalt heap upon his head; 21 Be not overcome by the evil, but overcome, in the good, the evil.
