Ezekiel 17:22-23

Context

17:22 “‘This is what the sovereign Lord says:

“‘I will take a sprig 1  from the lofty top of the cedar and plant it. 2 

I will pluck from the top one of its tender twigs;

I myself will plant it on a high and lofty mountain.

17:23 I will plant it on a high mountain of Israel,

and it will raise branches and produce fruit and become a beautiful cedar.

Every bird will live under it;

Every winged creature will live in the shade of its branches.

1 sn The language is analogous to messianic imagery in Isa 11:1; Zech 3:8; 6:4 although the technical terminology is not the same.

2 tc The LXX lacks “and plant it.”
