2:13 for all the cedars of Lebanon,
that are so high and mighty,
for all the oaks of Bashan; 1
let it rejoice and shout with delight! 3
It is given the grandeur 4 of Lebanon,
the splendor of Carmel and Sharon.
They will see the grandeur of the Lord,
the splendor of our God.
60:13 The splendor of Lebanon will come to you,
its evergreens, firs, and cypresses together,
to beautify my palace; 5
I will bestow honor on my throne room. 6
1 sn The cedars of Lebanon and oaks of Bashan were well-known for their size and prominence. They make apt symbols here for powerful men who think of themselves as prominent and secure.
