Zec 11:16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land; he shall not visit those who are cut off, nor will he seek the young, nor will he heal that which is broken, nor will he sustain that which stands. But he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear off their hoofs.
Zec 11:17 Woe to the worthless shepherd who abandons the flock! The sword shall be against his arm and against his right eye. His arm shall be completely withered, and his right eye shall be totally darkened.
The perpetual enemy of God is called “Amalek” (עֲמָלֵק), a name that begins with Ayin (symbolizing the eye) and whose value (in gematria) is 240 – the same value for safek (סָפֵק), the Hebrew word for doubt. Amalek therefore suggests “the eye of doubt,” or even “the severed eye” (the Hebrew verb מָלָק means “to chop” or “sever” in reference to the “eye” of Ayin). Unbelief is a spiritual blindness that makes it impossible to see God’s truth. [source]
