I cut off three of the shepherds in one month; for my soul was weary of them, and their soul also loathed me. Bible see other translations

“three of the shepherds.” The Hebrew text can be read as “three of the shepherds” or as “the three shepherds.” There have been centuries of debate as to how the sentence should be translated and what it refers to, and there has never been a totally satisfactory answer set forth. We only know that some shepherds were removed.
