Moreover, take up a lamentation for the princes of Yisra'el,
and say, What was your mother? A lioness: she couched among lions, in the midst of the young lions she nourished her whelps.
She brought up one of her whelps: he became a young lion, and he learned to catch the prey; he devoured men.
The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit; and they brought him with hooks to the land of Mitzrayim.
Now when she saw that she had waited, and her hope was lost, then she took another of her whelps, and made him a young lion.
He went up and down among the lions; he became a young lion, and he learned to catch the prey; he devoured men.
