Ezekiel 17:1-7 (King James Version)

View In My Bible
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying , 2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a parable unto the house of Israel; 3 And say , Thus saith the Lord GOD; A great eagle with great wings, longwinged , full of feathers, which had divers colours, came unto Lebanon, and took the highest branch of the cedar: 4 He cropped off the top of his young twigs, and carried it into a land of traffick; he set it in a city of merchants . 5 He took also of the seed of the land, and planteda it in a fruitful field; he placed it by great waters, and set it as a willow tree. 6 And it grew , and became a spreading vine of low stature, whose branches turned toward him, and the roots thereof were under him: so it became a vine, and brought forth branches, and shot forth sprigs. 7 There was also another great eagle with great wings and many feathers: and, behold, this vine did bend her roots toward him, and shot forth her branches toward him, that he might water it by the furrows of her plantation.
