Ezekiel 17


Ezekiel 17:1 Now the word of the Lord came to me saying,
Ezekiel 17:2 "Son of man, propound a riddle and speak a parable to the house of Israel,
Ezekiel 17:3 saying, 'Thus says the Lord God," A great eagle with great wings, long pinions and a full plumage of many colors came to Lebanon and took away the top of the cedar.
Ezekiel 17:4 He plucked off the topmost of its young twigs and brought it to a land of merchants; he set it in a city of traders.
Ezekiel 17:5 He also took some of the seed of the land and planted it in fertile soil. He placed it beside abundant waters; he set it like a willow.
Ezekiel 17:6 Then it sprouted and became a low, spreading vine with its branches turned toward him, but its roots remained under it. So it became a vine and yielded shoots and sent out branches.
Ezekiel 17:7 "But there was another great eagle with great wings and much plumage; and behold, this vine bent its roots toward him and sent out its branches toward him from the beds where it was planted, that he might water it.
Ezekiel 17:8 It was planted in good soil beside abundant waters, that it might yield branches and bear fruit and become a splendid vine."'
Ezekiel 17:9 Say, 'Thus says the Lord God," Will it thrive? Will he not pull up its roots and cut off its fruit, so that it withers"so that all its sprouting leaves wither? And neither by great strength nor by many people can it be raised from its roots again.
Ezekiel 17:10 Behold, though it is planted, will it thrive? Will it not completely wither as soon as the east wind strikes it"wither on the beds where it grew?"'"
Ezekiel 17:11 Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
Ezekiel 17:12 "Say now to the rebellious house, 'Do you not know what these things mean? 'Say, 'Behold, the king of Babylon came to Jerusalem, took its king and princes and brought them to him in Babylon.
Ezekiel 17:13 He took one of the royal family and made a covenant with him, putting him under oath. He also took away the mighty of the land,
Ezekiel 17:14 that the kingdom might be in subjection, not exalting itself, but keeping his covenant that it might continue.
Ezekiel 17:15 But he rebelled against him by sending his envoys to Egypt that they might give him horses and many troops. Will he succeed? Will he who does such things escape? Can he indeed break the covenant and escape?
Ezekiel 17:16 As I live, 'declares the Lord God, 'Surely in the country of the king who put him on the throne, whose oath he despised and whose covenant he broke, in Babylon he shall die.
Ezekiel 17:17 Pharaoh with his mighty army and great company will not help him in the war, when they cast up ramps and build siege walls to cut off many lives.
Ezekiel 17:18 Now he despised the oath by breaking the covenant, and behold, he pledged his allegiance, yet did all these things; he shall not escape. '"
Ezekiel 17:19 Therefore, thus says the Lord God," As I live, surely My oath which he despised and My covenant which he broke, I will inflict on his head.
Ezekiel 17:20 I will spread My net over him, and he will be caught in My snare. Then I will bring him to Babylon and enter into judgment with him there regarding the unfaithful act which he has committed against Me.
Ezekiel 17:21 All the choice men in all his troops will fall by the sword, and the survivors will be scattered to every wind; and you will know that I, the Lord, have spoken."
Ezekiel 17:22 Thus says the Lord God," I will also take a sprig from the lofty top of the cedar and set it out; I will pluck from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one and I will plant it on a high and lofty mountain.
Ezekiel 17:23 On the high mountain of Israel I will plant it, that it may bring forth boughs and bear fruit and become a stately cedar. And birds of every kind will nest under it; they will nest in the shade of its branches.
Ezekiel 17:24 All the trees of the field will know that I am the Lord; I bring down the high tree, exalt the low tree, dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish. I am the Lord; I have spoken, and I will perform it."

Ezekiel 17:6 And it grew, and became a spreading vine of low stature, whose branches turned toward him, and the roots thereof were under him: so it became a vine, and brought forth branches, and shot forth sprigs. Ezekiel 17:6 Then it sprouted and became a low, spreading vine with its branches turned toward him, but its roots remained under it. So it became a vine and yielded shoots and sent out branches. Ezekiel 17:6 καὶ ἀνέτειλεν καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς ἄμπελον ἀσθενοῦσαν καὶ μικρὰν τῷ μεγέθει τοῦ ἐπιφαίνεσθαι αὐτήν τὰ κλήματα αὐτῆς ἐπ᾽ αὐτὴν καὶ αἱ ῥίζαι αὐτῆς ὑποκάτω αὐτῆς ἦσαν καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς ἄμπελον καὶ ἐποίησεν ἀπώρυγας καὶ ἐξέτεινεν τὴν ἀναδενδράδα αὐτῆς

Ezekiel 17:9 Say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Shall it prosper? shall he not pull up the roots thereof, and cut off the fruit thereof, that it wither? it shall wither in all the leaves of her spring, even without great power or many people to pluck it up by the roots thereof. Ezekiel 17:9 Say, 'Thus says the Lord God," Will it thrive? Will he not pull up its roots and cut off its fruit, so that it withers"so that all its sprouting leaves wither?

Ezekiel 17:10 Yea, behold, being planted, shall it prosper? shall it not utterly wither, when the east wind toucheth it? it shall wither in the furrows where it grew. Ezekiel 17:10 Behold, though it is planted, will it thrive? Will it not completely wither as soon as the east wind strikes it"wither on the beds where it grew?"'" Ezekiel 17:10 καὶ ἰδοὺ πιαίνεται μὴ κατευθυνεῖ οὐχ ἅμα τῷ ἅψασθαι αὐτῆς ἄνεμον τὸν καύσωνα ξηρανθήσεται ξηρασίᾳ σὺν τῷ βώλῳ ἀνατολῆς αὐτῆς ξηρανθήσεται
