Kingly Power Abused

1Καὶ σὺ λάβε θρῆνον ἐπὶ τὸν ἄρχοντα τοῦ Ἰσραήλ,

2καὶ ἐρεῖς Τί ἡ μήτηρ σου; σκύμνος· ἐν μέσῳ λεόντων ἐγενήθη, ἐν μέσῳ λεόντων ἐπλήθυνεν σκύμνους αὐτῆς.

3καὶ ἀπεπήδησεν εἷς τῶν σκύμνων αὐτῆς, λέων ἐγένετο, καὶ ἔμαθεν τοῦ ἁρπάζειν ἁρπάγματα, ἀνθρώπους ἔφαγεν.

4καὶ ἤκουσαν κατ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἔθνη, ἐν τῇ διαφθορᾷ αὐτῶν συνελήμφθη, καὶ ἤγαγον αὐτὸν ἐν κημῷ εἰς γῆν Αἰγύπτου.

5καὶ ἴδεν ὅτι ἀπῶσται ἀπ᾽ αὐτῆς, ἀπώλετο ἡ ὑπόστασις αὐτῆς· καὶ ἔλαβεν ἄλλον ἐκ τῶν σκύμνων αὐτῆς, λέοντα ἔταξεν αὐτόν.

6καὶ ἀνεστρέφετο ἐν μέσῳ λεόντων, λέων ἐγένετο, καὶ ἔμαθεν ἁρπάζειν ἁρπάγματα, ἀνθρώπους ἔφαγεν·

7καὶ ἐνέμετο τῷ θράσει αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς πόλεις αὐτῶν ἐξηρήμωσεν, καὶ ἠφάνισεν γῆν καὶ τὸ πλήρωμα αὐτῆς ἀπὸ φωνῆς ὠρύματος αὐτοῦ.

8καὶ ἔδωκαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν ἔθνη ἐκ χωρῶν κυκλόθεν, καὶ ἐξεπέτασαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν δίκτυα αὐτῶν, ἐν διαφθορᾷ αὐτῶν συνελήμφθη·

9καὶ ἔθεντο αὐτὸν ἐν κημῷ καὶ ἐν γαλεάγρᾳ, ἦλθεν πρὸς βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος, καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὸν εἰς φυλακήν, ὅπως μὴ ἀκουσθῇ ἡ φωνὴ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰ ὄρη τοῦ Ἰσραήλ.

10Ἡ μήτηρ σου ὡς ἄμπελος καὶ ὡς ἄνθος ἐν ῥόᾳ ἐν ὕδατι πεφυτευμένη, ὁ καρπὸς αὐτῆς καὶ ὁ βλαστὸς αὐτῆς ἐγένετο ἐξ ὕδατος πολλοῦ.

11καὶ ἐγένετο αὕτη ῥάβδος ἐπὶ φυλὴν ἡγουμένων, καὶ ὑψώθη τῷ μεγέθει αὐτῆς ἐν μέσῳ στελεχῶν, καὶ ἴδεν τὸ μέγεθος αὐτῆς ἐν πλήθει κλημάτων αὐτῆς.

12καὶ κατεκλάσθη ἐν θυμῷ, ἐπὶ γῆν ἐρρίφη, καὶ ἄνεμος ὁ καύσων ἐξήρανεν τὰ ἐκλεκτὰ αὐτῆς· ἐξεδικήθησαν, καὶ ἐξηράνθη ἡ ῥάβδος ἰσχύος αὐτῆς, πῦρ ἀνήλωσεν αὐτήν.

13καὶ νῦν πεφύτευκαν αὐτὴν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, ἐν γῇ ἀνύδρῳ.

14καὶ ἐξῆλθεν πῦρ ἐκ ῥάβδου ἐκλεκτῶν αὐτῆς καὶ κατέφαγεν αὐτήν, καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἐν αὐτῇ ῥάβδος ἰσχύος· φυλὴ εἰς παραβολὴν θρήνου ἐστίν, καὶ ἔσται εἰς θρῆνον.
