Every tenth animal from the herd or flock, which passes under the [shepherd's] rod, will be holy to the LORD.
"What man among you, who has 100 sheep and loses one of them, does not leave the 99 in the open field and go after the lost one until he finds it?
The doorkeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
When he has brought all his own outside, he goes ahead of them. The sheep follow him because they recognize his voice.
