Ezekiel 19


19:1 Moreover take thou up a lamentation for the princes of
 Israel,
19:2 And say, What [is] thy mother: A lioness: she lay down
 among lions, she nourished her whelps among young lions.
19:3 And she brought up one of her whelps: it became a young
 lion, and it learned to catch the prey; it devoured men.
19:4 The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit,
 and they brought him with chains to the land of Egypt.
19:5 Now when she saw that she had waited, [and] her hope was
 lost, then she took another of her whelps, [and] made him a
 young lion.
19:6 And he went up and down among the lions, he became a young
 lion, and learned to catch the prey, [and] devoured men.
19:7 And he knew their desolate palaces, and he laid waste their
 cities; and the land was desolate, and the fullness of it, by
 the noise of his roaring.
19:8 Then the nations set against him on every side from the
 provinces, and spread their net over him: he was taken in their
 pit.
19:9 And they put him in custody in chains, and brought him to
 the king of Babylon: they brought him into holds, that his
 voice should no more be heard upon the mountains of Israel.
19:10 Thy mother [is] like a vine in thy blood, planted by the
 waters: she was fruitful and full of branches by reason of many
 waters.
19:11 And she had strong rods for the scepters of them that bore
 rule, and her stature was exalted among the thick branches, and
 she appeared in her hight with the multitude of her branches.
19:12 But she was plucked up in fury, she was cast down to the
 ground, and the east wind dried up her fruit: her strong rods
 were broken and withered; the fire consumed them.
19:13 And now she [is] planted in the wilderness, in a dry and
 thirsty ground.
19:14 And fire hath gone out of a rod of her branches, [which]
 hath devoured her fruit, so that she hath no strong rod [to be]
 a scepter to rule. This [is] a lamentation, and shall be for a
 lamentation.
