For the teraphim have spoken vanity,
and the diviners have seen a lie;
and they have told false dreams.
They comfort in vain.
Therefore they go their way like sheep.
They are oppressed because there is no shepherd. Bible

“there is no shepherd.” There were no godly leaders. Here, as in many other places, “shepherds” refers to the leaders.
