Ezekiel 19:10-14 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

10 Your mother was like a vine in your vineyard,[a]
planted by the water;
it was fruitful and full of branches
because of abundant water.
11 It had strong branches, fit for the scepters of rulers;
its height towered among the clouds.[b]
So it was conspicuous for its height
as well as its many branches.
12 But it was uprooted in fury,
thrown to the ground,
and the east wind dried up its fruit.
Its strong branches were torn off and dried up;
fire consumed them.
13 Now it is planted in the wilderness,
in a dry and thirsty land.
14 Fire has gone out from its main branch[c]
and has devoured its fruit,
so that it no longer has a strong branch,
a scepter for ruling.

This is a lament and should be used as a lament.”


  1. 19:10 Some Hb mss; other Hb mss read blood
  2. 19:11 Or thick foliage
  3. 19:14 Lit from the branch of its parts

Ezekiel 19:10-14 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

10 Your mother was like a vine in a vineyard[a]
    transplanted by the water,
fruitful and full of branches
    from abundant water.
11 Its strongest stem became
    a ruler’s scepter;[b]
it towered aloft
    among the thick boughs;
it stood out in its height
    with its mass of branches.
12 But it was plucked up in fury,
    cast down to the ground;
the east wind dried it up;
    its fruit was stripped off,
its strong stem was withered;
    the fire consumed it.
13 Now it is transplanted into the wilderness,
    into a dry and thirsty land.
14 And fire has gone out from its stem,
    has consumed its branches and fruit,
so that there remains in it no strong stem,
    no scepter for ruling.

This is a lamentation, and it is used as a lamentation.
