Ezekiel 34:23-24 New English Translation (NET Bible)

23 “‘I will set one shepherd over them, and he will feed them—namely, my servant David.[a] He will feed them and will be their shepherd. 24 I, the Lord, will be their God, and my servant David will be prince[b] among them; I, the Lord, have spoken!

Footnotes:

  1. Ezekiel 34:23 sn The messianic king is here called “David” (see Jer 30:9 and Hos 3:5, as well as Isa 11:1 and Mic 5:2) because he will fulfill the Davidic royal ideal depicted in the prophets and royal psalms (see Pss 2; 89).
  2. Ezekiel 34:24 sn The messianic king (“David”) is called both “king” and “prince” in 37:24-25. The use of the term “prince” for this king facilitates the contrast between this ideal ruler and the Davidic “princes” denounced in earlier prophecies (see 7:27; 12:10, 12; 19:1; 21:25; 22:6, 25).
