Young's Literal Translation

Ezekiel 19:1 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Moreover take thou up a lamentation - Declare what is the great subject of sorrow in Israel. Compose a funeral dirge. Show Be melancholy fate of the kings who proceeded from Josiah.

Calmet justly observes, that the style of this song is beautiful, and the allegory well supported throughout.
