Then I snapped in two my other staff Hovalim [bound together], in order to break up the brotherhood between Y’hudah and Isra’el.   Adonai said to me, “This time, take the equipment of a worthless shepherd.   For I am going to raise up a shepherd in the land who won’t bother about the ones who have been destroyed, won’t seek out the young, won’t heal the broken and won’t feed those standing still; on the contrary, he will eat the meat of the fat ones and break their hoofs in pieces.

“Woe to the worthless shepherd
who abandons the sheep!
May a sword strike his arm
and his right eye.
May his arm be completely withered
and his right eye totally blinded.”  Zechariah 11:14-17

Who is the worthless shepherd?  One candidate would be Zedekiah.  But this prophecy was probably written about the fourth year of King Darius (chapter 7).  Zedekiah was most likely already dead.  He was carried away by Nebuchadnezzar.   Could this shepherd be an end time shepherd?  Possibly about the time of Jesus’ return?
