Ezekiel 31:1-18

And it came to pass in the eleventh
<0259> <06240>
year
<08141>_,
in the third
<07992>
[month], in the first
<0259>
[day] of the month
<02320>_,
[that] the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came unto me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Son
<01121>
of man
<0120>_,
speak
<0559> (8798)
unto Pharaoh
<06547>
king
<04428>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
and to his multitude
<01995>_;
Whom art thou like
<01819> (8804)
in thy greatness
<01433>_?
Behold, the Assyrian
<0804>
[was] a cedar
<0730>
in Lebanon
<03844>
with fair
<03303>
branches
<06057>_,
and with a shadowing
<06751> (8688)
shroud
<02793>_,
and of an high
<01362>
stature
<06967>_;
and his top
<06788>
was among the thick boughs
<05688>_.
{with fair branches: Heb. fair of branches}
The waters
<04325>
made him great
<01431> (8765)_,
the deep
<08415>
set him up on high
<07311> (8790)
with her rivers
<05104>
running
<01980> (8802)
round about
<05439>
his plants
<04302>_,
and sent out
<07971> (8765)
her little rivers
<08585>
unto all the trees
<06086>
of the field
<07704>_.
{made...: or, nourished him} {set...: or, brought him up} {little rivers: or, conduits}
Therefore his height
<06967>
was exalted
<01361> (8804)
above all the trees
<06086>
of the field
<07704>_,
and his boughs
<05634>
were multiplied
<07235> (8799)_,
and his branches
<06288>
became long
<0748> (8799)
because of the multitude
<07227>
of waters
<04325>_,
when he shot forth
<07971> (8763)_.
{when...: or, when it sent them forth}
All the fowls
<05775>
of heaven
<08064>
made their nests
<07077> (8765)
in his boughs
<05589>_,
and under his branches
<06288>
did all the beasts
<02416>
of the field
<07704>
bring forth their young
<03205> (8804)_,
and under his shadow
<06738>
dwelt
<03427> (8799)
all great
<07227>
nations
<01471>_.
Thus was he fair
<03302> (8799)
in his greatness
<01433>_,
in the length
<0753>
of his branches
<01808>_:
for his root
<08328>
was by great
<07227>
waters
<04325>_.
The cedars
<0730>
in the garden
<01588>
of God
<0430>
could not hide
<06004> (8804)
him: the fir trees
<01265>
were not like
<01819> (8804)
his boughs
<05589>_,
and the chesnut trees
<06196>
were not like his branches
<06288>_;
nor any tree
<06086>
in the garden
<01588>
of God
<0430>
was like
<01819> (8804)
unto him in his beauty
<03308>_.
I have made
<06213> (8804)
him fair
<03303>
by the multitude
<07230>
of his branches
<01808>_:
so that all the trees
<06086>
of Eden
<05731>_,
that [were] in the garden
<01588>
of God
<0430>_,
envied
<07065> (8762)
him.
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
Because thou hast lifted up
<01361> (8804)
thyself in height
<06967>_,
and he hath shot up
<05414> (8799)
his top
<06788>
among the thick boughs
<05688>_,
and his heart
<03824>
is lifted up
<07311> (8804)
in his height
<01363>_;
I have therefore delivered
<05414> (8799)
him into the hand
<03027>
of the mighty one
<0410>
of the heathen
<01471>_;
he shall surely
<06213> (8800)
deal
<06213> (8799)
with him: I have driven him out
<01644> (8765)
for his wickedness
<07562>_.
{he...: Heb. in doing he shall do unto him}
And strangers
<02114> (8801)_,
the terrible
<06184>
of the nations
<01471>_,
have cut him off
<03772> (8799)_,
and have left
<05203> (8799)
him: upon the mountains
<02022>
and in all the valleys
<01516>
his branches
<01808>
are fallen
<05307> (8804)_,
and his boughs
<06288>
are broken
<07665> (8735)
by all the rivers
<0650>
of the land
<0776>_;
and all the people
<05971>
of the earth
<0776>
are gone down
<03381> (8799)
from his shadow
<06738>_,
and have left
<05203> (8799)
him.
Upon his ruin
<04658>
shall all the fowls
<05775>
of the heaven
<08064>
remain
<07931> (8799)_,
and all the beasts
<02416>
of the field
<07704>
shall be upon his branches
<06288>_:
To the end that none of all the trees
<06086>
by the waters
<04325>
exalt
<01361> (8799)
themselves for their height
<06967>_,
neither shoot up
<05414> (8799)
their top
<06788>
among the thick boughs
<05688>_,
neither their trees
<0352>
stand up
<05975> (8799)
in their height
<01363>_,
all that drink
<08354> (8802)
water
<04325>_:
for they are all delivered
<05414> (8738)
unto death
<04194>_,
to the nether parts
<08482>
of the earth
<0776>_,
in the midst
<08432>
of the children
<01121>
of men
<0120>_,
with them that go down
<03381> (8802)
to the pit
<0953>_.
{their trees...: or, stand upon themselves for their height}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
In the day
<03117>
when he went down
<03381> (8800)
to the grave
<07585>
I caused a mourning
<056> (8689)_:
I covered
<03680> (8765)
the deep
<08415>
for him, and I restrained
<04513> (8799)
the floods
<05104>
thereof, and the great
<07227>
waters
<04325>
were stayed
<03607> (8735)_:
and I caused Lebanon
<03844>
to mourn
<06937> (8686)
for him, and all the trees
<06086>
of the field
<07704>
fainted
<05969>
for him. {to mourn: Heb. to be black}
I made the nations
<01471>
to shake
<07493> (8689)
at the sound
<06963>
of his fall
<04658>_,
when I cast him down
<03381> (8687)
to hell
<07585>
with them that descend
<03381> (8802)
into the pit
<0953>_:
and all the trees
<06086>
of Eden
<05731>_,
the choice
<04005>
and best
<02896>
of Lebanon
<03844>_,
all that drink
<08354> (8802)
water
<04325>_,
shall be comforted
<05162> (8735)
in the nether parts
<08482>
of the earth
<0776>_.
They also went down
<03381> (8804)
into hell
<07585>
with him unto [them that be] slain
<02491>
with the sword
<02719>_;
and [they that were] his arm
<02220>_,
[that] dwelt
<03427> (8804)
under his shadow
<06738>
in the midst
<08432>
of the heathen
<01471>_.
To whom art thou thus like
<01819> (8804)
in glory
<03519>
and in greatness
<01433>
among the trees
<06086>
of Eden
<05731>_?
yet shalt thou be brought down
<03381> (8717)
with the trees
<06086>
of Eden
<05731>
unto the nether parts
<08482>
of the earth
<0776>_:
thou shalt lie
<07901> (8799)
in the midst
<08432>
of the uncircumcised
<06189>
with [them that be] slain
<02491>
by the sword
<02719>_.
This [is] Pharaoh
<06547>
and all his multitude
<01995>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_.
