A beautiful image, as Bp. Lowth remarks, expressive of the
tender attention of the shepherd to his flock. That the
greatest care in driving the cattle, in regard to the dams and
their young, was necessary, appears clearly from Jacob's
apology to his brother Esau, Ge 33:13; which is set in a still
stronger light by the following remarks of Sir J. Chardin:
"Their flocks feed down the places of their encampments so
quick, by the great numbers that they have, that they are
obliged to remove them often, which is very destructive to
their flocks, on account of the young ones, who have not
strength enough to follow."
