Ezekiel 31 - World English Bible with Hebrew
1 It happened in the eleventh year, in the third [month], in the first [day] of the month, that the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
1 וַיְהִ֗י בְּאַחַ֤ת עֶשְׂרֵה֙ שָׁנָ֔ה בַּשְּׁלִישִׁ֖י בְּאֶחָ֣ד לַחֹ֑דֶשׁ הָיָ֥ה דְבַר־יְהוָ֖ה אֵלַ֥י לֵאמֹֽר׃
2 Son of man, tell Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his multitude: Whom are you like in your greatness?
2 בֶּן־אָדָ֕ם אֱמֹ֛ר אֶל־פַּרְעֹ֥ה מֶֽלֶךְ־מִצְרַ֖יִם וְאֶל־הֲמֹונֹ֑ו אֶל־מִ֖י דָּמִ֥יתָ בְגָדְלֶֽךָ׃
3 Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with beautiful branches, and with a forest-like shade, and of high stature; and its top was among the thick boughs.
3 הִנֵּ֨ה אַשּׁ֜וּר אֶ֣רֶז בַּלְּבָנֹ֗ון יְפֵ֥ה עָנָ֛ף וְחֹ֥רֶשׁ מֵצַ֖ל וּגְבַ֣הּ קֹומָ֑ה וּבֵ֣ין עֲבֹתִ֔ים הָיְתָ֖ה צַמַּרְתֹּֽו׃
4 The waters nourished it, the deep made it to grow: the rivers of it ran round about its plantation; and it sent out its channels to all the trees of the field.
4 מַ֣יִם גִּדְּל֔וּהוּ תְּהֹ֖ום רֹֽמְמָ֑תְהוּ אֶת־נַהֲרֹתֶ֗יהָ הֹלֵךְ֙ סְבִיבֹ֣ות מַטָּעָ֔הּ וְאֶת־תְּעָלֹתֶ֣יהָ שִׁלְחָ֔ה אֶ֖ל כָּל־עֲצֵ֥י הַשָּׂדֶֽה׃
5 Therefore its stature was exalted above all the trees of the field; and its boughs were multiplied, and its branches became long by reason of many waters, when it shot [them] forth.
5 עַל־כֵּן֙ גָּבְהָ֣א קֹמָתֹ֔ו מִכֹּ֖ל עֲצֵ֣י הַשָּׂדֶ֑ה וַתִּרְבֶּ֨ינָה סַֽרְעַפֹּתָ֜יו וַתֶּאֱרַ֧כְנָה פֹארֹתֹו פֹארֹתָ֛יו מִמַּ֥יִם רַבִּ֖ים בְּשַׁלְּחֹֽו׃
6 All the birds of the sky made their nests in its boughs; and under its branches did all the animals of the field bring forth their young; and under its shadow lived all great nations.
6 בִּסְעַפֹּתָ֤יו קִֽנְנוּ֙ כָּל־עֹ֣וף הַשָּׁמַ֔יִם וְתַ֤חַת פֹּֽארֹתָיו֙ יָֽלְד֔וּ כֹּ֖ל חַיַּ֣ת הַשָּׂדֶ֑ה וּבְצִלֹּו֙ יֵֽשְׁב֔וּ כֹּ֖ל גֹּויִ֥ם רַבִּֽים׃
7 Thus was it beautiful in its greatness, in the length of its branches; for its root was by many waters.
7 וַיְּיִ֣ף בְּגָדְלֹ֔ו בְּאֹ֖רֶךְ דָּֽלִיֹּותָ֑יו כִּֽי־הָיָ֥ה שָׁרְשֹׁ֖ו אֶל־מַ֥יִם רַבִּֽים׃
8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide it; the fir trees were not like its boughs, and the plane trees were not as its branches; nor was any tree in the garden of God like it in its beauty.
8 אֲרָזִ֣ים לֹֽא־עֲמָמֻהוּ֮ בְּגַן־אֱלֹהִים֒ בְּרֹושִׁ֗ים לֹ֤א דָמוּ֙ אֶל־סְעַפֹּתָ֔יו וְעַרְמֹנִ֥ים לֹֽא־הָי֖וּ כְּפֹֽארֹתָ֑יו כָּל־עֵץ֙ בְּגַן־אֱלֹהִ֔ים לֹא־דָמָ֥ה אֵלָ֖יו בְּיָפְיֹֽו׃
9 I made it beautiful by the multitude of its branches, so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied it.
9 יָפֶ֣ה עֲשִׂיתִ֔יו בְּרֹ֖ב דָּֽלִיֹּותָ֑יו וַיְקַנְאֻ֙הוּ֙ כָּל־עֲצֵי־עֵ֔דֶן אֲשֶׁ֖ר בְּגַ֥ן הָאֱלֹהִֽים׃
10 Therefore thus said the Lord Yahweh: Because you are exalted in stature, and he has set his top among the thick boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height;
10 לָכֵ֗ן כֹּ֤ה אָמַר֙ אֲדֹנָ֣י יְהוִ֔ה יַ֕עַן אֲשֶׁ֥ר גָּבַ֖הְתָּ בְּקֹומָ֑ה וַיִּתֵּ֤ן צַמַּרְתֹּו֙ אֶל־בֵּ֣ין עֲבֹותִ֔ים וְרָ֥ם לְבָבֹ֖ו בְּגָבְהֹֽו׃
11 I will even deliver him into the hand of the mighty one of the nations; he shall surely deal with him; I have driven him out for his wickedness.
11 וְאֶ֨תְּנֵ֔הוּ בְּיַ֖ד אֵ֣יל גֹּויִ֑ם עָשֹׂ֤ו יַֽעֲשֶׂה֙ לֹ֔ו כְּרִשְׁעֹ֖ו גֵּרַשְׁתִּֽהוּ׃
12 Strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off, and have left him: on the mountains and in all the valleys his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the watercourses of the land; and all the peoples of the earth are gone down from his shadow, and have left him.
12 וַיִּכְרְתֻ֧הוּ זָרִ֛ים עָרִיצֵ֥י גֹויִ֖ם וַֽיִּטְּשֻׁ֑הוּ אֶל־הֶ֠הָרִים וּבְכָל־גֵּ֨אָיֹ֜ות3 נָפְל֣וּ דָלִיֹּותָ֗יו וַתִּשָּׁבַ֤רְנָה פֹֽארֹתָיו֙ בְּכֹל֙ אֲפִיקֵ֣י הָאָ֔רֶץ וַיֵּרְד֧וּ מִצִּלֹּ֛ו כָּל־עַמֵּ֥י הָאָ֖רֶץ וַֽיִּטְּשֻֽׁהוּ׃
13 On his ruin all the birds of the sky shall dwell, and all the animals of the field shall be on his branches;
13 עַל־מַפַּלְתֹּ֥ו יִשְׁכְּנ֖וּ כָּל־עֹ֣וף הַשָּׁמָ֑יִם וְאֶל־פֹּארֹתָ֣יו הָי֔וּ כֹּ֖ל חַיַּ֥ת הַשָּׂדֶֽה׃
14 to the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt themselves in their stature, neither set their top among the thick boughs, nor that their mighty ones stand up on their height, [even] all who drink water: for they are all delivered to death, to the lower parts of the earth, in the midst of the children of men, with those who go down to the pit.
14 לְמַ֡עַן אֲשֶׁר֩ לֹא־יִגְבְּה֨וּ בְקֹומָתָ֜ם כָּל־עֲצֵי־מַ֗יִם וְלֹֽא־יִתְּנ֤וּ אֶת־צַמַּרְתָּם֙ אֶל־בֵּ֣ין עֲבֹתִ֔ים וְלֹֽא־יַעַמְד֧וּ אֵלֵיהֶ֛ם בְּגָבְהָ֖ם כָּל־שֹׁ֣תֵי מָ֑יִם כִּֽי־כֻלָּם֩ נִתְּנ֨וּ לַמָּ֜וֶת אֶל־אֶ֣רֶץ תַּחְתִּ֗ית בְּתֹ֛וךְ בְּנֵ֥י אָדָ֖ם אֶל־יֹ֥ורְדֵי בֹֽור׃
15 Thus says the Lord Yahweh: In the day when he went down to Sheol I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the rivers of it; and the great waters were stayed; and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.
15 כֹּֽה־אָמַ֞ר אֲדֹנָ֣י יְהוִ֗ה בְּיֹ֨ום רִדְתֹּ֤ו שְׁאֹ֙ולָה֙ הֶאֱבַ֜לְתִּי כִּסֵּ֤תִי עָלָיו֙ אֶת־תְּהֹ֔ום וָֽאֶמְנַע֙ נַהֲרֹותֶ֔יהָ וַיִּכָּלְא֖וּ מַ֣יִם רַבִּ֑ים וָאַקְדִּ֤ר עָלָיו֙ לְבָנֹ֔ון וְכָל־עֲצֵ֥י הַשָּׂדֶ֖ה עָלָ֥יו עֻלְפֶּֽה׃
16 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to Sheol with those who descend into the pit; and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, were comforted in the lower parts of the earth.
16 מִקֹּ֤ול מַפַּלְתֹּו֙ הִרְעַ֣שְׁתִּי גֹויִ֔ם בְּהֹורִדִ֥י אֹתֹ֛ו שְׁאֹ֖ולָה אֶת־יֹ֣ורְדֵי בֹ֑ור וַיִּנָּ֨חֲמ֜וּ בְּאֶ֤רֶץ תַּחְתִּית֙ כָּל־עֲצֵי־עֵ֔דֶן מִבְחַ֥ר וְטֹוב־לְבָנֹ֖ון כָּל־שֹׁ֥תֵי מָֽיִם׃
17 They also went down into Sheol with him to those who are slain by the sword; yes, those who were his arm, [that] lived under his shadow in the midst of the nations.
17 גַּם־הֵ֗ם אִתֹּ֛ו יָרְד֥וּ שְׁאֹ֖ולָה אֶל־חַלְלֵי־חָ֑רֶב וּזְרֹעֹ֛ו יָשְׁב֥וּ בְצִלֹּ֖ו בְּתֹ֥וךְ גֹּויִֽם׃
18 To whom are you thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? yet shall you be brought down with the trees of Eden to the lower parts of the earth: you shall lie in the midst of the uncircumcised, with those who are slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, says the Lord Yahweh.
18 אֶל־מִ֨י דָמִ֥יתָ כָּ֛כָה בְּכָבֹ֥וד וּבְגֹ֖דֶל בַּעֲצֵי־עֵ֑דֶן וְהוּרַדְתָּ֙ אֶת־עֲצֵי־עֵ֜דֶן אֶל־אֶ֣רֶץ תַּחְתִּ֗ית בְּתֹ֨וךְ עֲרֵלִ֤ים תִּשְׁכַּב֙ אֶת־חַלְלֵי־חֶ֔רֶב ה֤וּא פַרְעֹה֙ וְכָל־הֲמֹונֹ֔הq נְאֻ֖ם אֲדֹנָ֥י יְהוִֽה׃
