The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. — John 10:11

Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. —Hebrews 13:20-21

And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.—1 Peter 5:4

He will tend his flock like a shepherd;
    he will gather the lambs in his arms;
he will carry them in his bosom,
    and gently lead those that are with young. — Isaiah 40:11

hey shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore;
    the sun shall not strike them,
    nor any scorching heat. 
For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd,
    and he will guide them to springs of living water,

and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” Revelation 7:16-17
