Ezekiel 19
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1But you, son of man, take up a lamentation for the Princes of Israel

2And say, “What is your mother, lion’s whelp? For she crouched among the lionesses, and she raised her cubs among the lionesses

3And one of her cubs grew, and was a male lion, and he learned to tear apart prey and he ate a son of man

4And the nations heard his fame and he was seized in their net, and they brought him with a bridle to the land of Egypt

5And when his mother saw that she was weakened and her hope in herself was lost, she took one of her cubs and she made him a lion

6And he walked among the lionesses and was a male lion, and he learned to tear apart prey, and he ate a son of man

7And he walked in his strength and he ravaged the cities and destroyed the land in its fullness with the sound of his roaring

8And the nations gathered to him from the cities which were around him, and they spread their net over him, and he was captured in it

9And they imprisoned him in a cage and brought him to the King of Babel, and brought him to a house of imprisonment, so that his voice would not be heard again on the mountains of Israel

10Your mother, as a vine in your blood, planted her fruit on the waters and her shoots were in many waters

11And she had strong rods for the scepters of the Rulers, and their stature was lifted up from among her shoots and they appeared in their height and in the abundance of their branches

12And they were uprooted in anger and they were cast into the ground, and the hot wind dried up its fruit and they were broken off and dried up the rods of her strength, and fire consumed it

13Therefore she is planted in the wilderness in a thirsty and desolate land

14And fire came out from its choice rods and devoured its fruit, and a strong scepter was not found in it again, nor a tribe that will be Ruler. This is the lamentation, and it shall be for a lamentation
