Ezekiel 19 : 2 - 9

Chapter 19

2and say: "What is your mother? A lioness: She lay down among the lions; Among the young lions she nourished her cubs.
3She brought up one of her cubs, And he became a young lion; He learned to catch prey, And he devoured men.
4The nations also heard of him; He was trapped in their pit, And they brought him with chains to the land of Egypt.
5"When she saw that she waited, that her hope was lost, She took another of her cubs and made him a young lion.
6He roved among the lions, And became a young lion; He learned to catch prey; He devoured men.
7He knew their desolate places, And laid waste their cities; The land with its fullness was desolated By the noise of his roaring.
8Then the nations set against him from the provinces on every side, And spread their net over him; He was trapped in their pit.
9They put him in a cage with chains, And brought him to the king of Babylon; They brought him in nets, That his voice should no longer be heard on the mountains of Israel.
