Ezekiel 18

Verses 1-32

Ezekiel 19:1-14 . This lamentation has two sections. The lamentations for the princes come first (Ezekiel 19:1-9 ), and that is followed by the lamentation for the land of Judah (Ezekiel 19:10-14 ).

The princes are Jehoahaz and Jehoiachin. King Jehoahaz was carried away captive into Egypt 2 Kings 23:33 ; his fate is lamented in Ezekiel 19:1-4 . King Jehoiachin was taken to Babylon and he is lamented in Ezekiel 19:5-9 . In the lamentation for the land of Judah the vine is once more mentioned. The vine is burned, the fruit devoured and there is no scepter in Judah.
