Ezekiel 19 ©
A lamentation for the princes of Israel, under the parable of lions' cubs taken in a pit; and for Jerusalem, under the parable of a wasted vine.
And he knew 1their desolate palaces, and he laid waste their cities; and the land was desolate, and the fulness thereof, by the noise of his roaring.
But pshe was plucked up in fury, she was cast down to the ground, and qthe east wind dried up her fruit: her strong rods were broken and withered; rthe fire consumed them.
And ufire is gone out of a rod of her branches, which hath vdevoured her fruit, so that she hath wno strong rod to be a sceptre to rule. xThis is a lamentation, and shall be for a lamentation.
