Ezekiel 19:5-9 World English Bible (WEB)

Now when she saw that she had waited, and her hope was lost, then she took another of her cubs, and made him a young lion. He went up and down among the lions; he became a young lion, and he learned to catch the prey; he devoured men. He knew their palaces, and laid waste their cities; and the land was desolate, and its fullness, because of the noise of his roaring. Then the nations set against him on every side from the provinces; and they spread their net over him; he was taken in their pit. They put him in a cage with hooks, and brought him to the king of Babylon; they brought him into strongholds, that his voice should no more be heard on the mountains of Israel.

Ezekiel 19:5-9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

‘When she saw, as she waited,
That her hope was lost,
She took [a]another of her cubs
And made him a young lion.
‘And he walked about among the lions;
He became a young lion,
He learned to tear his prey;
He devoured men.
‘He [b]destroyed their [c]fortified towers
And laid waste their cities;
And the land and its fullness were appalled
Because of the sound of his roaring.
‘Then nations set against him
On every side from their provinces,
And they spread their net over him;
He was captured in their pit.
They put him in a cage with hooks
And brought him to the king of Babylon;
They brought him in hunting nets
So that his voice would be heard no more
On the mountains of Israel.
