" 'Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: As surely as I live, I will bring down on his head my oath that he despised and my covenant that he broke.120
I will spread my net2 for him, and he will be caught in my snare. I will bring him to Babylon and execute judgment3 on him there because he was unfaithful4 to me.
All his choice troops will fall by the sword,5 and the survivors6 will be scattered to the winds.7 Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken.822
" 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself will take a shoot9 from the very top of a cedar and plant it; I will break off a tender sprig from its topmost shoots and plant it on a high and lofty mountain.1023
On the mountain heights11 of Israel I will plant it; it will produce branches and bear fruit12 and become a splendid cedar. Birds of every kind will nest in it; they will find shelter in the shade of its branches.1324
All the trees of the forest14 will know that I the LORD bring down15 the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish.16 " 'I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.17' "
