Ezekiel 17:1-7 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Then this message came to me from the LORD: 2 "Son of man, tell this story to the people of Israel. 3 Give them this message from the Sovereign LORD: A great eagle with broad wings full of many-colored feathers came to Lebanon. He took hold of the highest branch of a cedar tree 4 and plucked off its topmost shoot. Then he carried it away to a city filled with merchants, where he planted it. 5 "Then he planted one of its seedlings in fertile ground beside a broad river, where it would grow as quickly as a willow tree. 6 It took root there and grew into a low, spreading vine. Its branches turned up toward the eagle, and its roots grew down beneath it. It soon produced strong branches and luxuriant leaves. 7 But then another great eagle with broad wings and full plumage came along. So the vine sent its roots and branches out toward him for water.
