This word is used figuratively to represent the relation of rulers to their subjects and of God to his people (Ps. 23:1; “80:1; Isa. 40:11; 44:28; Jer. 25:34, 35; Nahum 3:18; John 10:11,” 14; Heb. 13:20; 1 Pet. 2:25; 5:4). “The duties of a shepherd in an unenclosed country like Palestine “were very onerous. “In early morning he led forth the flock from” “the fold, marching at its head to the spot where they were to be” “pastured.

At night he brought the “flock home to the fold, counting them as they passed under the” rod at the door to assure himself that none were missing. Nor did his labours always end with sunset. Often he had to guard “the fold through the dark hours from the attack of wild beasts,” “or the wily attempts of the prowling thief (see 1 Sam. 17:34).”,” Deane’s David.
