Moreover take thou up a lamentation for the princes of Israel,
And say, What [is] thy mother: A lioness: she lay down among lions, she nourished her whelps among young lions.
And she brought up one of her whelps: it became a young lion, and it learned to catch the prey; it devoured men.
The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit, and they brought him with chains to the land of Egypt.
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.
And he went up and down among the lions, he became a young lion, and learned to catch the prey, [and] devoured men.
