Israel Degraded

19 “Moreover atake up a lamentation for the princes of Israel, and say:

‘What is your mother? A lioness:

She lay down among the lions;

Among the young lions she nourished her cubs.

3 She brought up one of her cubs,

And bhe became a young lion;

He learned to catch prey,

And he devoured men.

4 The nations also heard of him;

He was trapped in their pit,

And they brought him with chains to the land of cEgypt.

5 ‘When she saw that she waited, that her hope was lost,

She took danother of her cubs and made him a young lion.

6 eHe roved among the lions,

And fbecame a young lion;

He learned to catch prey;

He devoured men.

7 1He knew their desolate places,

And laid waste their cities;

The land with its fullness was desolated

By the noise of his roaring.

8 gThen the nations set against him from the provinces on every side,

And spread their net over him;

hHe was trapped in their pit.
