Ezekiel 19 (WEBP)

[1] “Moreover, take up a lamentation for the princes of Israel,
[2] and say, ‘What was your mother? A lioness. She couched 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. 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.
[5] “ ‘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. He learned to catch the prey. He devoured men.
[7] He knew their palaces, and laid waste their cities. The land was desolate with its fullness, because of the noise of his roaring.
[8] Then the nations attacked him on every side from the provinces. 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, so that his voice should no more be heard on the mountains of Israel.
[10] “ ‘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 branches for the scepters of those who ruled. Their stature was exalted among the thick boughs. 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 branches 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 has gone out of its branches. It has devoured its fruit, so that there is in it no strong branch to be a scepter to rule.’

Ezekiel 19 (KJVS)

[1] Moreover take thou up H5375 (8798) a lamentation H7015 for the princes H5387 of Israel H3478,
[2] And say H559 (8804), What [is] thy mother H517? A lioness H3833: she lay down H7257 (8804) among lions H738, she nourished H7235 (8765) her whelps H1482 among H8432 young lions H3715.
[3] And she brought up H5927 (8686) one H259 of her whelps H1482: it became a young lion H3715, and it learned H3925 (8799) to catch H2963 (8800) the prey H2964; it devoured H398 (8804) men H120.
[4] The nations H1471 also heard H8085 (8799) of him; he was taken H8610 (8738) in their pit H7845, and they brought H935 (8686) him with chains H2397 unto the land H776 of Egypt H4714.
[5] Now when she saw H7200 (8799) that she had waited H3176 (8738), [and] her hope H8615 was lost H6 (8804), then she took H3947 (8799) another H259 of her whelps H1482, [and] made H7760 (8804) him a young lion H3715.
[6] And he went up and down H1980 (8691) among H8432 the lions H738, he became a young lion H3715, and learned H3925 (8799) to catch H2963 (8800) the prey H2964, [and] devoured H398 (8804) men H120.
[7] And he knew H3045 (8799) their desolate palaces H490, and he laid waste H2717 (8689) their cities H5892; and the land H776 was desolate H3456 (8799), and the fulness H4393 thereof, by the noise H6963 of his roaring H7581.
[8] Then the nations H1471 set H5414 (8799) against him on every side H5439 from the provinces H4082, and spread H6566 (8799) their net H7568 over him: he was taken H8610 (8738) in their pit H7845.
[9] And they put H5414 (8799) him in ward H5474 in chains H2397, and brought H935 (8686) him to the king H4428 of Babylon H894: they brought H935 (8686) him into holds H4685, that his voice H6963 should no more be heard H8085 (8735) upon the mountains H2022 of Israel H3478.
[10] Thy mother H517 [is] like a vine H1612 in thy blood H1818 (8676) H1818, planted H8362 (8803) by the waters H4325: she was fruitful H6509 (8802) and full of branches H6058 by reason of many H7227 waters H4325.
[11] And she had strong H5797 rods H4294 for the sceptres H7626 of them that bare rule H4910 (8802), and her stature H6967 was exalted H1361 (8799) among the thick branches H5688, and she appeared H7200 (8735) in her height H1363 with the multitude H7230 of her branches H1808.
[12] But she was plucked up H5428 (8714) in fury H2534, she was cast down H7993 (8717) to the ground H776, and the east H6921 wind H7307 dried up H3001 (8689) her fruit H6529: her strong H5797 rods H4294 were broken H6561 (8694) and withered H3001 (8804); the fire H784 consumed H398 (8804) them.
[13] And now she [is] planted H8362 (8803) in the wilderness H4057, in a dry H6723 and thirsty H6772 ground H776.
[14] And fire H784 is gone out H3318 (8799) of a rod H4294 of her branches H905, [which] hath devoured H398 (8804) her fruit H6529, so that she hath no strong H5797 rod H4294 [to be] a sceptre H7626 to rule H4910 (8800). This [is] a lamentation H7015, and shall be for a lamentation H7015.

Young’s Literal Translation

Ezekiel 19 (YLT)

[1] And thou, lift up a lamentation unto princes of Israel,
[2] and thou hast said: What is thy mother?-a lioness, Among lions she hath crouched down, In the midst of young lions she hath multiplied her whelps.
[3] And she bringeth up one of her whelps, A young lion it hath been, And it learneth to tear prey, man it hath devoured.
[4] And hear of it do nations, In their pit it hath been caught, And they bring it in with chains unto the land of Egypt.
[5] And she seeth, that stayed-perished hath her hope, And she taketh one of her whelps, A young lion she hath made it.
[6] And it goeth up and down in the midst of lions, A young lion it hath been, And it learneth to tear prey, man it hath devoured.
[7] And it knoweth his forsaken habitations, And their cities it hath laid waste, And desolate is the land and its fulness, Because of the voice of his roaring.
[8] And set against it do nations Round about from the provinces. And they spread out for it their net, In their pit it hath been caught.
[9] And they put it in prison-in chains, And they bring it unto the king of Babylon, They bring it in unto bulwarks, So that its voice is not heard any more On mountains of Israel.
[10] Thy mother is as a vine in thy blood by waters planted, Fruitful and full of boughs it hath been, Because of many waters.
[11] And it hath strong rods for sceptres of rulers, And high is its stature above thick branches, And it appeareth in its height In the multitude of its thin shoots.
[12] And it is plucked up in fury, To the earth it hath been cast, And the east wind hath dried up its fruit, Broken and withered hath been the rod of its strength, Fire hath consumed it.
[13] And now-it is planted in a wilderness, In a land dry and thirsty.
[14] And go forth doth fire from a rod of its boughs, Its fruit it hath devoured, And it hath no rod of strength-a sceptre to rule, Lamentation it is-and it is for a lamentation!’
