Ezekiel 17:5-6 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
5 Then he took a seed from the land,
placed it in fertile soil;
a plant by abundant waters,
he set it like a willow twig.
6 It sprouted and became a vine,
spreading out, but low;
its branches turned towards him,
its roots remained where it stood.
So it became a vine;
it brought forth branches,
put forth foliage.
