Ezekiel 17:1-4

Two Eagles and a Vine

1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 “Son of man, set forth an allegory and tell it to the Israelites as a parable.
3 Say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: A great eagle with powerful wings, long feathers and full plumage of varied colors came to Lebanon. Taking hold of the top of a cedar,
4 he broke off its topmost shoot and carried it away to a land of merchants, where he planted it in a city of traders.
