Ezekiel 19:1-6 HNV

1 Moreover, take up a lamentation for the princes of Yisra'el,
2 and say, What was your mother? A lioness: she couched among lions, in the midst of the young lions she nourished her whelps.
3 She brought up one of her whelps: he became a young lion, and he learned to catch the prey; he devoured men.
4 The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit; and they brought him with hooks to the land of Mitzrayim.
5 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.
6 He went up and down among the lions; he became a young lion, and he learned to catch the prey; he devoured men.
