Context Readings

Pharaoh Is Warned Through Assyria's Destruction

2 “Son of man, say to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his hordes:Who are you like in your greatness? 3 Think of Assyria, a cedar in Lebanon,
with beautiful branches and shady foliage
and of lofty height.
Its top was among the clouds.
4 The waters caused it to grow;
the underground springs made it tall,
directing their rivers all around
the place where the tree was planted
and sending their channels
to all the trees of the field.
