Ezekiel 17
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the answer of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me, saying: 2“Son of man, riddle a riddle and parable a parable upon those of the house of Israel 3And say, “Thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: a great eagle of great wings and long feathers and full talons and thick feathers came to Lebanon, and he took choice ones of cedar trees 4And he cropped off the top of its growth and brought it to the land of Canaan and he placed it in a city of merchants 5And he took from the seed of the land and cast into the wilderness a plant on many waters and he set it for a Watchman 6And it sprouted up and it was a sickly vine, short of stature, that its shoots would appear upon it, and its roots shall be under it, and it was a vine and it made shoots and it stretched forth its shoots

7And behold, another great eagle whose wings were greater and with more and finer talons, and it bent its roots toward him and it cast its shoots toward him, that he would water it from the soil of its planting 8In a beautiful field and in many waters it is planted, that it would make leaves and it would bear fruit and there would be a glorious vine 9Say, ‘Thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: it shall not prosper, but its roots shall be cut off and its fruit shall rot, and they shall dry up and all the leaves of its growth shall dry up and many shall uproot it from its roots, not by an high arm and not by the Gentiles 10Behold, it is planted but it shall not prosper, and when the hot wind has blown on it, it dries up in the soil of its growth

11And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me, saying: 12Say to the rebellious house: “Do you not know what these things are? Say to them, ‘Behold, the King of Babel is coming to Jerusalem, and he will take her King and her Princes and lead them to Babel 13And he shall take from the seed of the kingdom and covenant a covenant with him, also he enters into an oath with him and he takes the Rulers of the land that they will not be exalted 14But their kingdom shall be laid low and they shall keep his covenant and they shall stand with him 15And he shall rebel against him and he shall send his Ambassadors to Egypt that they would give him horses and many people. He will not prosper and he will not be saved, he who does thus 16I am living, says THE LORD OF LORDS, that in the place where he set up the King and he despised my oath and he nullified my covenant, within Babel, he shall die 17And not with a great army neither with many horses shall Pharaoh make war with him, but in ambush traps and in watchtowers he shall destroy many physical lives 18Because he despised the oaths and he nullified the covenant, he shall surrender his hand, and he shall not be delivered, because he did all these things 19Because of these things, thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: ‘As I am living, because he rejected my oaths and nullified my covenant, I shall bring it up on his head 20And I shall spread my net upon him, and he shall be seized in it, and I shall carry him to Babel to the land of the Chaldeans, and I shall sentence him there for the evil that he has committed against me 21And all his Nobles and all his companions shall fall by the sword, and those who are left shall be scattered to every wind, and you shall know that I AM LORD JEHOVAH. I have spoken

22Thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: “I shall take from the choice of high cedars, and from the top I shall cut off its heart and I shall plant it on the high and lofty mountains 23In the mountains of Israel I shall plant it, and it shall produce leaves, and it shall make fruit and it will be a glorious cedar, and every bird of wings shall dwell in it, and in the shadow of its branches they shall dwell 24And all the trees of the wilderness shall know that I AM LORD JEHOVAH. I brought down the high tree and I have lifted up the low tree, and I dried up the green tree and I made the dry tree grow. I AM LORD JEHOVAH. I have spoken and I have done it!”
