1 And lift· thou ·up a lamentation to the chiefs of Israel,

2 and say, What is thy mother? An old·​·lioness; she couched between lions, in the midst of young·​·lions she multiplied her whelps.

3 And she brought·​·up one of her whelps; he became a young·​·lion, and he learned to prey·​·on the prey; he devoured men*.

4 And nations heard of him; he was caught in their ditch; and they brought him with hooks to the land of Egypt.

5 And she saw that she had hoped, and what she waited·​·for had perished, and she took one of her whelps, and set him for a young·​·lion.

6 And he walked in the midst of the lions; he became a young·​·lion, and learned to prey·​·on the prey; he devoured men.

7 And he violated* their widows, and he made·​·a·​·waste of their cities; and the land was·​·desolate, and the fullness, by the voice of his roaring.

8 And the nations put themselves against him all around from the provinces, and spread their net over him; he was caught in their ditch.

9 And they put him in a closed place with hooks, and brought him to the king of Babylon; they brought him into forts, so·​·that his voice should no more be heard in the mountains of Israel.

10 Thy mother is as a vine in thy likeness*, planted by the waters; she was·​·fruitful and the bough was from many waters.

11 And she had strong rods for the scepters of the rulers, and her stature was·​·tall over between intertwined·​·branches, and she was seen in her loftiness in the multitude of her offshoots.

12 But she was plucked·​·up in fury, she was cast to the earth, and the wind of the east dried·​·up her fruit; the rod of her strength was pulled·​·off and dried·​·up; the fire devoured it.

13 And now she is planted in the wilderness, in an arid and thirsty land.

14 And fire is gone·​·out of a rod of her branches* which has devoured her fruit, and with her there is no strong rod to be a scepter to rule. It is a lamentation, and shall be for a lamentation.
