1 Moreover do thou take up a lamentation for the prince of Israel, 2 and say, Why is thy mother become a whelp in the midst of lions? in the midst of lions she has multiplied her whelps. 3 And one of her whelps sprang forth; he became a lion, and learned to take prey, he devoured men. 4 And the nations heard a report of him; he was caught in their pit, and they brought him into the land of Egypt in chains. 5 And she saw that he was driven away from her, [and] her hope of him] perished, and she took another of her whelps; she made him a lion. 6 And he went up and down in the midst of lions, he became a lion, and learned to take prey, he devoured men. 7 And he prowled in his boldness and laid waste their cities, and made the land desolate, and the fullness of it, by the voice of his roaring. 8 Then the nations set upon him from the countries round about, and they spread their nets upon him: he was taken in their pit. 9 And they put him in chains and in a cage, [and] he came to the king of Babylon; and he cast him into prison, that his voice should not be heard on the mountains of Israel. 10 Thy mother was as a vine and as a blossom on a pomegranate tree, planted by water: her fruit and her shoot abounded by reason of much water. 11 And she became a rod for a tribe of princes, and was elevated in her bulk in the midst of [other] trees, and she saw her bulk in the multitude of her branches. 12 But she was broken down in wrath, she was cast upon the ground, and the east wind dried up her choice [branches]: vengeance came upon them, and the rod of her strength was withered; fire consumed it. 13 And now they have planted her in the wilderness, in a dry land. 14 And fire is gone out of a rod of her choice [boughs], and has devoured her; and there was no rod of strength in her. Her race is become a parable of lamentation, and it shall be for a lamentation. ΚΑΙ σὺ λαβὲ θρῆνον ἐπὶ τὸν ἄρχοντα τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ 2 καὶ ἐρεῖς· τί ἡ μήτηρ σου; σκύμνος· ἐν μέσῳ λεόντων ἐγενήθη, ἐν μέσῳ λεόντων ἐπλήθυνε σκύμνους αὐτῆς. 3 καὶ ἀπεπήδησεν εἷς τῶν σκύμνων αὐτῆς, λέων ἐγένετο καὶ ἔμαθε τοῦ ἁρπάζειν ἁρπάγματα, ἀνθρώπους ἔφαγε. 4 καὶ ἤκουσαν κατ’ αὐτοῦ ἔθνη, ἐν τῇ διαφθορᾷ αὐτῶν συνελήφθη, καὶ ἤγαγον αὐτὸν ἐν κημῷ εἰς γῆν Αἰγύπτου. 5 καὶ εἶδεν ὅτι ἀπῶσται ἀπ’ αὐτῆς, ἀπώλετο ἡ ὑπόστασις αὐτῆς, καὶ ἔλαβεν ἄλλον ἐκ τῶν σκύμνων αὐτῆς, λέοντα ἔταξεν αὐτόν, 6 καὶ ἀνεστρέφετο ἐν μέσῳ λεόντων, λέων ἐγένετο καὶ ἔμαθεν ἁρπάζειν ἁρπάγματα, ἀνθρώπους ἔφαγε· 7 καὶ ἐνέμετο τῷ θράσει αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς πόλεις αὐτῶν ἐξηρήμωσε καὶ ἠφάνισε γῆν καὶ τὸ πλήρωμα αὐτῆς ἀπὸ φωνῆς ὠρυώματος αὐτοῦ. 8 καὶ ἔδωκαν ἐπ’ αὐτὸν ἔθνη ἐκ χωρῶν κυκλόθεν καὶ ἐξεπέτασαν ἐπ’ αὐτὸν δίκτυα αὐτῶν, ἐν διαφθορᾷ αὐτῶν συνελήφθη· 9 καὶ ἔθεντο αὐτὸν ἐν κημῷ καὶ ἐν γαλεάγρᾳ, ἦλθε πρὸς βασιλέα Βαβυλῶνος, καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὸν εἰς φυλακήν, ὅπως μὴ ἀκουσθῇ ἡ φωνὴ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰ ὄρη τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ. 10 ἡ μήτηρ σου ὡς ἄμπελος καὶ ὡς ἄνθος ἐν ῥόᾳ ἐν ὕδατι πεφυτευμένη, ὁ καρπὸς αὐτῆς καὶ ὁ βλαστὸς αὐτῆς ἐγένετο ἐξ ὕδατος πολλοῦ. 11 καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτῇ ράβδος ἐπὶ φυλὴν ἡγουμένων, καὶ ὑψώθη τῷ μεγέθει αὐτῆς ἐν μέσῳ στελεχῶν καὶ εἶδε τὸ μέγεθος αὐτῆς ἐν πλήθει κλημάτων αὐτῆς. 12 καὶ κατεκλάσθη ἐν θυμῷ, ἐπὶ γῆν ἐρρίφη, καὶ ἄνεμος ὁ καύσων ἐξήρανε τὰ ἐκλεκτὰ αὐτῆς· ἐξεδικήθη καὶ ἐξηράνθη ἡ ράβδος ἰσχύος αὐτῆς, πῦρ ἀνήλωσεν αὐτήν. 13 καὶ νῦν πεφύτευκαν αὐτὴν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, ἐν γῇ ἀνύδρῳ· 14 καὶ ἐξῆλθε πῦρ ἐκ ράβδου ἐκλεκτῶν αὐτῆς καὶ κατέφαγεν αὐτήν, καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἐν αὐτῇ ράβδος ἰσχύος. φυλὴ εἰς παραβολὴν θρήνου ἐστὶ καὶ ἔσται εἰς θρῆνον.
