comment What does “delinquent” mean in this context?
Correct, but in the first part of the proposition "This is not the result of a few delinquents among the shepherds", we see the word used to refer to a minority. The negation doesn't change the meaning of the word in the microcontext. I take your point though, I will clarify.

comment What is the meaning of “you look take care of her”?
True, but there are no commas here. It could be rewritten "Yes, you. look, take care of her. She can’t handle alcohol."

@HotLicks - It may not be wrong as part of a dialect, English is a language in flux, but it's not grammatically correct standard modern English. I just wanted to point that out in case the OP hadn't realised.

comment “personal issue”, “private issue”, “personal affair”, or “personal business”?
Personal and private issue suggest an intimate (embarrassing) health problem. Personal affair suggests an extra-marital relationship. Personal business suggests either a side business conflicting with your work, or else defecation.
