Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentJohn 10:13
- Because he is a hireling (oti mistwtov estin).
- And only that, without the shepherd heart that loves the sheep. Reason given for the conduct of the hireling after the parenthesis about the wolf.
- And careth not for the sheep (kai ou melei autwi peri twn probatwn).
- Literally, "and it is no care to him about the sheep." This use of the impersonal melei (present active indicative) is quite common, as in Matthew 22:16. But God does care (1 Peter 5:7).
