2 H559 [H8804] And say H517 , What is thy mother H3833 ? A lioness H7257 [H8804] : she lay down H738 among lions H7235 [H8765] , she nourished H1482 her whelps H8432 among H3715 young lions.
3 H5927 [H8686] And she brought up H259 one H1482 of her whelps H3715 : it became a young lion H3925 [H8799] , and it learned H2963 [H8800] to catch H2964 the prey H398 [H8804] ; it devoured H120 men.
4 H1471 The nations H8085 [H8799] also heard H8610 [H8738] of him; he was taken H7845 in their pit H935 [H8686] , and they brought H2397 him with chains H776 to the land H4714 of Egypt.
5 H7200 [H8799] Now when she saw H3176 [H8738] that she had waited H8615 , and her hope H6 [H8804] was lost H3947 [H8799] , then she took H259 another H1482 of her whelps H7760 [H8804] , and made H3715 him a young lion.
6 H1980 [H8691] And he went up and down H8432 among H738 the lions H3715 , he became a young lion H3925 [H8799] , and learned H2963 [H8800] to catch H2964 the prey H398 [H8804] , and devoured H120 men.
7 H3045 [H8799] And he knew H490 their desolate palaces H2717 [H8689] , and he laid waste H5892 their cities H776 ; and the land H3456 [H8799] was desolate H4393 , and all it containeth H6963 , by the noise H7581 of his roaring.
8 H1471 Then the nations H5414 [H8799] set H5439 against him on every side H4082 from the provinces H6566 [H8799] , and spread H7568 their net H8610 [H8738] over him: he was taken H7845 in their pit.
9 H5414 [H8799] And they put H5474 him in custody H2397 in chains H935 [H8686] , and brought H4428 him to the king H894 of Babylon H935 [H8686] : they brought H4685 him into strong holds H6963 , that his voice H8085 [H8735] should no more be heard H2022 upon the mountains H3478 of Israel.
10 H517 Thy mother H1612 is like a vine H1818 H1818 [H8676] in thy blood H8362 [H8803] , planted H4325 by the waters H6509 [H8802] : she was fruitful H6058 and full of branches H7227 by reason of many H4325 waters.
11 H5797 And she had strong H4294 rods H7626 for the sceptres H4910 [H8802] of them that bore rule H6967 , and her stature H1361 [H8799] was exalted H5688 among the thick branches H7200 [H8735] , and she appeared H1363 in her height H7230 with the multitude H1808 of her branches.
12 H5428 [H8714] But she was plucked up H2534 in fury H7993 [H8717] , she was cast down H776 to the ground H6921 , and the east H7307 wind H3001 [H8689] dried up H6529 her fruit H5797 : her strong H4294 rods H6561 [H8694] were broken H3001 [H8804] and withered H784 ; the fire H398 [H8804] consumed them.
13 H8362 [H8803] And now she is planted H4057 in the wilderness H6723 , in a dry H6772 and thirsty H776 ground.
