Ezekiel 17: 22-24

“‘God says:

I personally will take a shoot from the top of the towering cedar,

a cutting from the crown of the tree,

and plant it on a high and towering mountain, on the high mountain of Israel.

It will grow, putting out branches and fruit—a majestic cedar.

Birds of every sort and kind will live under it.

They’ll build nests in the shade of its branches.

All the trees of the field will recognize that I, God,

made the great tree small and the small tree great,

made the green tree turn dry and the dry tree sprout green branches.

I, God, said it—and I did it.’”
