Ezekiel 19:2-3

Context
19:2 and say:

“‘What a lioness was your mother among the lions!

She lay among young lions; 1  she reared her cubs.

19:3 She reared one of her cubs; he became a young lion.

He learned to tear prey; he devoured people. 2 

1 sn Lions probably refer to Judahite royalty and/or nobility. The lioness appears to symbolize the Davidic dynasty, though some see the referent as Hamutal, the wife of Josiah and mother of Jehoahaz and Zedekiah. Gen 49:9 seems to be the background for Judah being compared to lions.

2 tn Heb “a man.”
