A Lament for Israel's Princes

1 "Take up a lament1 concerning the princes2 of Israel 2 and say: " 'What a lioness3 was your mother among the lions! She lay down among the young lions and reared her cubs.4 3 She brought up one of her cubs, and he became a strong lion. He learned to tear the prey and he devoured men. 4 The nations heard about him, and he was trapped in their pit. They led him with hooks5 to the land of Egypt.6 5 " 'When she saw her hope unfulfilled, her expectation gone, she took another of her cubs7 and made him a strong lion.8 6 He prowled among the lions, for he was now a strong lion. He learned to tear the prey and he devoured men.9 7 He broke downa their strongholds and devastated10 their towns. The land and all who were in it were terrified by his roaring. 8 Then the nations11 came against him, those from regions round about. They spread their net12 for him, and he was trapped in their pit.13
