Isaiah 14:8


14:8 The evergreens also rejoice over your demise, 1 

as do the cedars of Lebanon, singing, 2 

‘Since you fell asleep, 3 

no woodsman comes up to chop us down!’ 4 

Isaiah 37:24


37:24 Through your messengers you taunted the sovereign master, 5 

‘With my many chariots I climbed up

the high mountains,

the slopes of Lebanon.

I cut down its tall cedars

and its best evergreens.

I invaded its most remote regions, 6 

its thickest woods.
