NASB — Ezekiel 19 — KJV

Lament for the Princes of Israel

1 “As for you, take up a alamentation for the bprinces of Israel 2 and say,
  ‘IWhat was your mother?
  A lioness among lions!
  She lay down among young lions,
  She reared her cubs.
  3 ‘When she brought up one of her cubs,
  He became a lion,
  And he learned to tear [his] prey;
  He devoured men.
  4 ‘Then nations heard about him;
  He was captured in their pit,
  And they abrought him with hooks
  To the land of Egypt.
  5 ‘When she saw, as she waited,
  [That] her hope was lost,
  She took Ianother of her cubs
  And made him a young lion.
  6 ‘And he awalked about among the lions;
  He became a young lion,
  He learned to tear [his] prey;
  He devoured men.
  7 ‘He Idestroyed their IIfortified towers
  And laid waste their cities;
  And the land and its fullness were appalled
  Because of the sound of his roaring.
  8 ‘Then anations set against him
  On every side from [their] provinces,
  And they spread their net over him;
  He was captured in their pit.
  9aThey put him in a cage with hooks
  And bbrought 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.
  10 ‘Your mother was alike a vine in your Ivineyard,
  Planted by the waters;
  It was fruitful and full of branches
  Because of abundant waters.
  11 ‘And it had Iastrong branches [fit] for scepters of rulers,
  And its bheight was raised above the clouds
  So that it was seen in its height with the mass of its branches.
  12 ‘But it was aplucked up in fury;
  It was bcast down to the ground;
  And the ceast wind dried up its fruit.
  Its Idstrong branch IIwas torn off
  So that IIIit withered;
  The fire consumed it.
  13 ‘And now it is planted in the awilderness,
  In a dry and thirsty land.
  14 ‘And afire has gone out from [its] branch;
  It has consumed its shoots [and] fruit,
  So that there is not in it a Istrong branch,
  A scepter to rule.’”
This is a lamentation, and has become a lamentation.

A lamentation for the princes of Israel, under the parable of lions' whelps taken in a pit,

1 ¶ Moreover take thou up a lamentation for the princes of Israel, 2 And say, What [is] thy mother? A lioness: she lay down among lions, she nourished her whelps among young lions. 3 And she brought up one of her whelps: it became a young lion, and it learned to catch the prey; it devoured men. 4 The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit, and they brought him with chains unto the land of Egypt. 5 Now when she saw that she had waited, [and] her hope was lost, then she took another of her whelps, [and] made him a young lion. 6 And he went up and down among the lions, he became a young lion, and learned to catch the prey, [and] devoured men. 7 And he knew their desolate palaces, and he laid waste their cities; and the land was desolate, and the fulness thereof, by the noise of his roaring. 8 Then the nations set against him on every side from the provinces, and spread their net over him: he was taken in their pit. 9 And they put him in ward in chains, and brought him to the king of Babylon: they brought him into holds, that his voice should no more be heard upon the mountains of Israel.

and for Jerusalem, under the parable of a wasted vine.

10 ¶ Thy mother [is] like a vine in thy blood, planted by the waters: she was fruitful and full of branches by reason of many waters. 11 And she had strong rods for the sceptres of them that bare rule, and her stature was exalted among the thick branches, and she appeared in her height with the multitude of her branches. 12 But she was plucked up in fury, she was cast down to the ground, and the east wind dried up her fruit: her strong rods were broken and withered; the fire consumed them. 13 And now she [is] planted in the wilderness, in a dry and thirsty ground. 14 And fire is gone out of a rod of her branches, [which] hath devoured her fruit, so that she hath no strong rod [to be] a sceptre to rule. This [is] a lamentation, and shall be for a lamentation.
