Zechariah 11.

The first 3 verses of chapter 11 are probably a poem of lament over all that is not as it should be with how people have received the Messianic King. Seeing those verses in that way help us to understand the rest of the chapter where we are shown the worthlessness of the shepherd who has been chosen (17), compared to the one who has been rejected.

If we choose the foolish shepherd, where will our security, our salvation, and our sense of hope be?
