Go to Commentary on Ezek 19

1Moreover, take up a lamentation for the rulers of Israel
  2and say,

 What was your mother? A lioness;

 she crouched among lions,

 in the middle of the young lions she nourished her cubs.


 3 She brought up one of her cubs;

 he became a young lion,

 and he learned to catch the prey;

 he devoured men.


 4 The nations also heard of him;

 he was taken in their pit

 and they brought him with hooks

 to the land of Egypt.


Now when she saw that she had waited,

 and her hope was lost,

 then she took another of her cubs

 and made him a young lion.


 6 He went up and down among the lions;

 he became a young lion,

 and he learned to catch the prey;

 he devoured men.


 7 He knew their palaces

 and laid waste their cities,

 and the land was desolate, and its fullness,

 because of the noise of his roaring.


 8 Then the nations set against him

 on every side from the provinces,

 and they spread their net over him;

 he was taken in their pit.


 9 They put him in a cage with hooks

 and brought him to the king of Babylon;

 they brought him into strongholds,

 that his voice should no more be heard

 on the mountains of Israel.


Your mother was like a vine in your blood,

 planted by the waters;

 it was fruitful and full of branches

 by reason of many waters.


 11 It had strong rods for the scepters of those who ruled,

 and their stature was exalted among the thick boughs,

 and they were seen in their height

 with the multitude of their branches.


 12 But it was plucked up in fury,

 it was cast down to the ground,

 and the east wind dried up its fruit;

 its strong rods were broken off and withered,

 the fire consumed them.


 13 Now it is planted in the wilderness,

 in a dry and thirsty land.


 14 Fire is gone out of the rods of its branches,

 it has devoured its fruit

 so that there is in it no strong rod

 to be a scepter to rule.

This is a lamentation, and should be for a lamentation.
