Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:10 - Your mother was like a vine in a vineyard transplanted by the water, fruitful and full of branches by reason of abundant water.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:11 - Its strongest stem became a ruler's scepter; it towered aloft among the thick boughs; it was seen in its height with the mass of its branches.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:12 - But the vine was plucked up in fury, cast down to the ground; the east wind dried it up; its fruit was stripped off, its strong stem was withered; the fire consumed it.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:13 - Now it is transplanted in the wilderness, in a dry and thirsty land.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 19:14 - And fire has gone out from its stem, has consumed its branches and fruit, so that there remains in it no strong stem, no scepter for a ruler. This is a lamentation, and has become a lamentation.
