11In the eleventh year, in the third month, on the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came to me:
22"Son of man, say to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to 3his multitude: 4"Whom are you like in your greatness?
Behold, 5Assyria was a 6cedar in 7Lebanon, with beautiful branches and 8forest shade, 9and of towering height, its top among the clouds.a4
The waters nourished it; the deep made it grow tall, making 10its rivers flow around the place of its planting, sending forth its streams to all the trees of the field.
So 11it towered high above all the trees of the field; its boughs grew large and its branches long from 12abundant water in its shoots.
613All the birds of the heavens made their nests in its boughs; under its branches all the beasts of the field gave birth to their young, and under its shadow lived all great nations.
