Ezekiel 19:10-14


10 Your mother was like a vine in a vineyard*
   transplanted by the water,
fruitful and full of branches
   from abundant water.
11 Its strongest stem became
   a ruler’s sceptre;*
it towered aloft
   among the thick boughs;
it stood out in its height
   with its mass of branches.
12 But it was plucked up in fury,
   cast down to the ground;
the east wind dried it up;
   its fruit was stripped off,
its strong stem was withered;
   the fire consumed it.
13 Now it is transplanted into the wilderness,
   into a dry and thirsty land.
14 And fire has gone out from its stem,
   has consumed its branches and fruit,
so that there remains in it no strong stem,
   no sceptre for ruling.

This is a lamentation, and it is used as a lamentation.
