Ezekiel 17:1-6 GNT

1 The Lord spoke to me.
2 "Mortal man," he said, "tell the Israelites a parable
3 to let them know what I, the Sovereign Lord, am saying to them: There was a giant eagle with beautiful feathers and huge wings, spread wide. He flew to the Lebanon Mountains and broke off the top of a cedar tree,
4 which he carried to a land of commerce and placed in a city of merchants.
5 Then he took a young plant from the land of Israel and planted it in a fertile field, a where there was always water to make it grow.
