and it sprouted and became a klow lspreading vine, and its branches turned toward him, and its roots remained where it stood. So it became a vine and produced branches and put out boughs.


You brought ta vine out of Egypt;

you udrove out the nations and planted it.


The Vineyard of the Lord Destroyed

Let me sing for my beloved

my love song concerning his vineyard:

My beloved had va vineyard

on a very fertile hill.


10  Your mother was ilike a vine in a vineyard1

planted by the water,

jfruitful and full of branches

kby reason of abundant water.

11  Its strong stems became

rulers' scepters;

it towered aloft

among the thick boughs;2

it was seen in its height

with the mass of its branches.

12  But the vine was plucked up in fury,

cast down to the ground;

lthe east wind dried up its fruit;

they were stripped off and withered.

As for its strong stem,

fire consumed it.

13  mNow it is planted in the wilderness,

in a dry and thirsty land.

14  nAnd fire has gone out from the stem of its shoots,

has consumed its fruit,

oso that there remains in it no strong stem,

no scepter for ruling.

This is pa lamentation and has become a lamentation.
