A Funeral Song for Israel’s Kings

19“Sing this funeral song for the princes of Israel.H5375H7015H5387H3478 2“What is your mother? A lioness among lions! She lay down among the young lions and reared her cubs.H559H517H3833H7257H738H7235H1482H8432H3715 3She raised one of her cubs to become a strong young lion. He learned to hunt and devour prey, and he became a man-eater.H5927H259H1482H3715H3925H2963H2964H398H120 4Then the nations heard about him, and he was trapped in their pit. They led him away with hooks to the land of Egypt.H1471H8085H8610H7845H935H2397H776H4714 5“When the lioness saw that her hopes for him were gone, she took another of her cubs and taught him to be a strong young lion.H7200H3176H8615H6H3947H259H1482H7760H3715 6He prowled among the other lions and stood out among them in his strength. He learned to hunt and devour prey, and he, too, became a man-eater.H1980H8432H738H3715H3925H2963H2964H398H120 7He demolished fortresses and destroyed their towns and cities. Their farms were desolated, and their crops were destroyed. The land and its people trembled in fear when they heard him roar.H3045H490H2717H5892H776H3456H4393H6963H7581 8Then the armies of the nations attacked him, surrounding him from every direction. They threw a net over him and captured him in their pit.H1471H5414H5439H4082H6566H7568H8610H7845 9With hooks, they dragged him into a cage and brought him before the king of Babylon. They held him in captivity, so his voice could never again be heard on the mountains of Israel.H5414H5474H2397H935H4428H894H935H4685H6963H8085H2022H3478 10“Your mother was like a vine planted by the water’s edge. It had lush, green foliage because of the abundant water.H517H1612H1818H1818H8362H4325H6509H6058H7227H4325 11Its branches became strong—strong enough to be a ruler’s scepter. It grew very tall, towering above all others. It stood out because of its height and its many lush branches.H5797H4294H7626H4910H6967H1361H5688H7200H1363H7230H1808 12But the vine was uprooted in fury and thrown down to the ground. The desert wind dried up its fruit and tore off its strong branches, so that it withered and was destroyed by fire.H5428H2534H7993H776H6921H7307H3001H6529H5797H4294H6561H3001H784H398 13Now the vine is transplanted to the wilderness, where the ground is hard and dry.H8362H4057H6723H6772H776 14A fire has burst out from its branches and devoured its fruit. Its remaining limbs are not strong enough to be a ruler’s scepter. “This is a funeral song, and it will be used in a funeral.”H784H3318H4294H905H398H6529H5797H4294H7626H4910H7015H7015
