Ezekiel 31

31:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third
 [month], in the first [day] of the month, [that] the word of
 the LORD came to me, saying,
31:2 Son of man, speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his
 multitude; Whom art thou like in thy greatness?
31:3 Behold, the Assyrian [was] a cedar in Lebanon with fair
 branches, and with a shady cover, and of a high stature; and
 his top was among the thick boughs.
31:4 The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with
 her rivers running round his plants, and sent out her little
 rivers to all the trees of the field.
31:5 Therefore his hight was exalted above all the trees of the
 field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became
 long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth.
31:6 All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and
 under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth
 their young, and under his shade dwelt all great nations.
31:7 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his
 branches: for his root was by great waters.
31:8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the
 fir-trees were not like his boughs, and the chesnut-trees were
 not like his branches; not any tree in the garden of God was
 like to him in his beauty.
31:9 I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so
 that all the trees of Eden, that [were] in the garden of God,
 envied him.
31:10 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast
 lifted up thyself in hight, and he hath shot up his top among
 the thick boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his hight;
31:11 I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty
 one of the heathen; he shall surely deal with him: I have
 driven him out for his wickedness.
31:12 And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him
 off, and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the
 valleys his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by
 all the rivers of the land; and all the people of the earth
 have gone down from his shade, and have left him.
31:13 Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven remain,
 and all the beasts of the field shall be upon his branches:
31:14 To the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt
 themselves for their hight, neither shoot up their top among
 the thick boughs, neither their trees stand up in their hight,
 all that drink water: for they are all delivered to death, to
 the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the children of
 men, with them that go down to the pit.
31:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to
 the grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and
 I restrained its floods, and the great waters were stayed: and
 I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the
 field fainted for him.
31:16 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when
 I cast him down to the grave with them that descend into the
 pit: and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon,
 all that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of
 the earth.
31:17 They also went down into the grave with him to [them that
 are] slain with the sword; and [they that were] his arm, [that]
 dwelt under his shade in the midst of the heathen.
31:18 To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among
 the trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the
 trees of Eden to the nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie
 in the midst of the uncircumcised with [them that are] slain by
 the sword. This [is] Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the
 Lord GOD.
