Ezekiel 17:5

Context

17:5 He took one of the seedlings 1  of the land,

placed it in a cultivated plot; 2 

a shoot by abundant water,

like a willow he planted it.

Ezekiel 17:8

Context

17:8 In a good field, by abundant waters, it was planted

to grow branches, bear fruit, and become a beautiful vine.

1 tn Heb “took of the seed of the land.” For the vine imagery, “seedling” is a better translation, though in its subsequent interpretation the “seed” refers to Zedekiah through its common application to offspring.

2 tn Heb “a field for seed.”
