Planted by the waters;
It was fruitful and full of branches
Because of abundant waters.
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.
So that 3it 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 1strong branch,
A scepter to rule.’ ”
This is a lamentation, and has become a lamentation.
So with some ancient mss; M.T. blood
Lit rods of strength
Lit rods of her strength
So Gr; M.T. they were
So Gr; M.T. they
Lit rod of strength
