Ezekiel 19:1-4 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

A Lament for Israel’s Princes

19 “As for you, take up a lament for the princes of Israel, and say:

What was your mother? A lioness!
She lay down among the lions;
she reared her cubs among the young lions.
She brought up one of her cubs,
and he became a young lion.
After he learned to tear prey,
he devoured people.
When the nations heard about him,
he was caught in their pit.
Then they led him away with hooks
to the land of Egypt.

Israel Degraded

19 As for you, raise up a lamentation for the princes of Israel, and say:

What a lioness was your mother
    among lions!
She lay down among young lions,
    rearing her cubs.
She raised up one of her cubs;
    he became a young lion,
and he learned to catch prey;
    he devoured humans.
The nations sounded an alarm against him;
    he was caught in their pit;
and they brought him with hooks
    to the land of Egypt.
