One who feeds the flock; shepherd.

And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land, and made mine heritage an abomination. The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the PASTORS also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit. ( Jeremiah 2:7-8 )
