6 And he went up and down among the lions and became a young lion, learning to go after beasts for his food; and he took men for his meat.
7 And he sent destruction on their widows and made waste their towns; and the land and everything in it became waste because of the loud sound of his voice.
8 Then the nations came against him from the kingdoms round about: their net was stretched over him and he was taken in the hole they had made.
9 They made him a prisoner with hooks, and took him to the king of Babylon; they put him in the strong place so that his voice might be sounding no longer on the mountains of Israel.
10 Your mother was in comparison like a vine, planted by the waters: she was fertile and full of branches because of the great waters.
