Lament for the Princes of Israel

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:1 - “As for you, take up a lamentation for the princes of Israel

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:2 - and say,
[fn]What was your mother?
A lioness among lions!
She lay down among young lions,
She reared her cubs.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:3 - ‘When she brought up one of her cubs,
He became a lion,
And he learned to tear his prey;
He devoured men.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:4 - ‘Then nations heard about him;
He was captured in their pit,
And they brought him with hooks
To the land of Egypt.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:5 - ‘When she saw, as she waited,
That her hope was lost,
She took [fn]another of her cubs
And made him a young lion.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:6 - ‘And he walked about among the lions;
He became a young lion,
He learned to tear his prey;
He devoured men.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:7 - ‘He [fn]destroyed their [fn]fortified towers
And laid waste their cities;
And the land and its fullness were appalled
Because of the sound of his roaring.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:8 - ‘Then nations set against him
On every side from their provinces,
And they spread their net over him;
He was captured in their pit.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:9 - ‘They put him in a cage with hooks
And brought him to the king of Babylon;
They brought him in hunting nets
So that his voice would be heard no more
On the mountains of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:10 - ‘Your mother was like a vine in your [fn]vineyard,
Planted by the waters;
It was fruitful and full of branches
Because of abundant waters.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:11 - ‘And it had [fn]strong branches fit for scepters of rulers,
And its height was raised above the clouds
So that it was seen in its height with the mass of its branches.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:12 - ‘But it was plucked up in fury;
It was cast down to the ground;
And the east wind dried up its fruit.
Its [fn]strong branch [fn]was torn off
So that [fn]it withered;
The fire consumed it.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:13 - ‘And now it is planted in the wilderness,
In a dry and thirsty land.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:14 - ‘And fire has gone out from its branch;
It has consumed its shoots and fruit,
So that there is not in it a [fn]strong branch,
A scepter to rule.’”
This is a lamentation, and has become a lamentation.
