Jesus, the King, provides “princes,” or elders, who care for the flock


  • Like “a place of concealment from the rainstorm,” they work to protect the flock from storms of persecution and discouragement

  • Like “streams of water in a waterless land,” they refresh those who are spiritually thirsty by offering pure, unadulterated truth

  • Like “the shadow of a massive crag in a parched land,” they bring relief to the flock by providing spiritual guidance and refreshment
