Ezekiel 17:1-24

And the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came unto me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Son
<01121>
of man
<0120>_,
put forth
<02330> (8798)
a riddle
<02420>_,
and speak
<04911> (8798)
a parable
<04912>
unto the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_;
And say
<0559> (8804)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
A great
<01419>
eagle
<05404>
with great
<01419>
wings
<03671>_,
longwinged
<083> <0750>_,
full
<04392>
of feathers
<05133>_,
which had divers colours
<07553>_,
came
<0935> (8804)
unto Lebanon
<03844>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
the highest branch
<06788>
of the cedar
<0730>_:
{divers...: Heb. embroidering}
He cropped off
<06998> (8804)
the top
<07218>
of his young twigs
<03242>_,
and carried
<0935> (8686)
it into a land
<0776>
of traffick
<03667>_;
he set
<07760> (8804)
it in a city
<05892>
of merchants
<07402> (8802)_.
He took
<03947> (8799)
also of the seed
<02233>
of the land
<0776>_,
and planted
<05414> (8799)
it in a fruitful
<02233>
field
<07704>_;
he placed
<03947> (8804)
[it] by great
<07227>
waters
<04325>_,
[and] set
<07760> (8804)
it [as] a willow tree
<06851>_.
{planted...: Heb. put it in a field of seed}
And it grew
<06779> (8799)_,
and became a spreading
<05628> (8802)
vine
<01612>
of low
<08217>
stature
<06967>_,
whose branches
<01808>
turned
<06437> (8800)
toward him, and the roots
<08328>
thereof were under him: so it became a vine
<01612>_,
and brought forth
<06213> (8799)
branches
<0905>_,
and shot
<07971> (8762)
forth sprigs
<06288>_.
There was also another
<0259>
great
<01419>
eagle
<05404>
with great
<01419>
wings
<03671>
and many
<07227>
feathers
<05133>_:
and, behold, this vine
<01612>
did bend
<03719> (8804)
her roots
<08328>
toward him, and shot forth
<07971> (8765)
her branches
<01808>
toward him, that he might water
<08248> (8687)
it by the furrows
<06170>
of her plantation
<04302>_.
It was planted
<08362> (8803)
in a good
<02896>
soil
<07704>
by great
<07227>
waters
<04325>_,
that it might bring forth
<06213> (8800)
branches
<06057>_,
and that it might bear
<05375> (8800)
fruit
<06529>_,
that it might be a goodly
<0155>
vine
<01612>_.
{soil: Heb. field}
Say
<0559> (8798)
thou, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
Shall it prosper
<06743> (8799)_?
shall he not pull up
<05423> (8762)
the roots
<08328>
thereof, and cut off
<07082> (8779)
the fruit
<06529>
thereof, that it wither
<03001> (8804)_?
it shall wither
<03001> (8799)
in all the leaves
<02964>
of her spring
<06780>_,
even without great
<01419>
power
<02220>
or many
<07227>
people
<05971>
to pluck it up
<05375> (8800)
by the roots
<08328>
thereof.
Yea, behold, [being] planted
<08362> (8803)_,
shall it prosper
<06743> (8799)_?
shall it not utterly
<03001> (8800)
wither
<03001> (8799)_,
when the east
<06921>
wind
<07307>
toucheth
<05060> (8800)
it? it shall wither
<03001> (8799)
in the furrows
<06170>
where it grew
<06780>_.
Moreover the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came unto me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Say
<0559> (8798)
now to the rebellious
<04805>
house
<01004>_,
Know
<03045> (8804)
ye not what these [things mean]? tell
<0559> (8798)
[them], Behold, the king
<04428>
of Babylon
<0894>
is come
<0935> (8802)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and hath taken
<03947> (8799)
the king
<04428>
thereof, and the princes
<08269>
thereof, and led
<0935> (8686)
them with him to Babylon
<0894>_;
And hath taken
<03947> (8799)
of the king's
<04410>
seed
<02233>_,
and made
<03772> (8799)
a covenant
<01285>
with him, and hath taken
<0935> (8686)
an oath
<0423>
of him: he hath also taken
<03947> (8804)
the mighty
<0352>
of the land
<0776>_:
{taken an...: Heb. brought him to an oath}
That the kingdom
<04467>
might be base
<08217>_,
that it might not lift itself up
<05375> (8692)_,
[but] that by keeping
<08104> (8800)
of his covenant
<01285>
it might stand
<05975> (8800)_.
{but...: Heb. to keep his covenant, to stand to it}
But he rebelled
<04775> (8799)
against him in sending
<07971> (8800)
his ambassadors
<04397>
into Egypt
<04714>_,
that they might give
<05414> (8800)
him horses
<05483>
and much
<07227>
people
<05971>_.
Shall he prosper
<06743> (8799)_?
shall he escape
<04422> (8735)
that doeth
<06213> (8802)
such [things]? or shall he break
<06565> (8689)
the covenant
<01285>_,
and be delivered
<04422> (8738)_?
[As] I live
<02416>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
surely in the place
<04725>
[where] the king
<04428>
[dwelleth] that made him king
<04427> (8688)_,
whose oath
<0423>
he despised
<0959> (8804)_,
and whose covenant
<01285>
he brake
<06565> (8689)_,
[even] with him in the midst
<08432>
of Babylon
<0894>
he shall die
<04191> (8799)_.
Neither shall Pharaoh
<06547>
with [his] mighty
<01419>
army
<02428>
and great
<07227>
company
<06951>
make
<06213> (8799)
for him in the war
<04421>_,
by casting up
<08210> (8800)
mounts
<05550>_,
and building
<01129> (8800)
forts
<01785>_,
to cut off
<03772> (8687)
many
<07227>
persons
<05315>_:
Seeing he despised
<0959> (8804)
the oath
<0423>
by breaking
<06565> (8687)
the covenant
<01285>_,
when, lo, he had given
<05414> (8804)
his hand
<03027>_,
and hath done
<06213> (8804)
all these [things], he shall not escape
<04422> (8735)_.
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
[As] I live
<02416>_,
surely mine oath
<0423>
that he hath despised
<0959> (8804)_,
and my covenant
<01285>
that he hath broken
<06331> (8689)_,
even it will I recompense
<05414> (8804)
upon his own head
<07218>_.
And I will spread
<06566> (8804)
my net
<07568>
upon him, and he shall be taken
<08610> (8738)
in my snare
<04686>_,
and I will bring
<0935> (8689)
him to Babylon
<0894>_,
and will plead
<08199> (8738)
with him there for his trespass
<04603> (8804)
that he hath trespassed
<04604>
against me.
And all his fugitives
<04015>
with all his bands
<0102>
shall fall
<05307> (8799)
by the sword
<02719>_,
and they that remain
<07604> (8737)
shall be scattered
<06566> (8735)
toward all winds
<07307>_:
and ye shall know
<03045> (8804)
that I the LORD
<03068>
have spoken
<01696> (8765)
[it].
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
I will also take
<03947> (8804)
of the highest branch
<06788>
of the high
<07311> (8802)
cedar
<0730>_,
and will set
<05414> (8804)
[it]; I will crop off
<06998> (8799)
from the top
<07218>
of his young twigs
<03127>
a tender one
<07390>_,
and will plant
<08362> (8804)
[it] upon an high
<01364>
mountain
<02022>
and eminent
<08524> (8803)_:
In the mountain
<02022>
of the height
<04791>
of Israel
<03478>
will I plant
<08362> (8799)
it: and it shall bring forth
<05375> (8804)
boughs
<06057>_,
and bear
<06213> (8804)
fruit
<06529>_,
and be a goodly
<0117>
cedar
<0730>_:
and under it shall dwell
<07931> (8804)
all fowl
<06833>
of every wing
<03671>_;
in the shadow
<06738>
of the branches
<01808>
thereof shall they dwell
<07931> (8799)_.
And all the trees
<06086>
of the field
<07704>
shall know
<03045> (8804)
that I the LORD
<03068>
have brought down
<08213> (8689)
the high
<01364>
tree
<06086>_,
have exalted
<01361> (8689)
the low
<08217>
tree
<06086>_,
have dried
<03001> (8689)
up the green
<03892>
tree
<06086>_,
and have made the dry
<03002>
tree
<06086>
to flourish
<06524> (8689)_:
I the LORD
<03068>
have spoken
<01696> (8765)
and have done
<06213> (8804)
[it].
