你的母亲先前如葡萄树,极其茂盛(原文作在你血中),栽于水旁。因为水多,就多结果子,满生枝子。
'Your mother was like a vine in your vineyard planted by the water; it was fruitful and full of branches because of abundant water.

但这葡萄树因忿怒被拔出摔在地上。东风吹干其上的果子,坚固的枝干折断枯干,被火烧毁了。

如今栽于旷野干旱无水之地。
Now it is planted in the desert, in a dry and thirsty land.

火也从它枝干中发出,烧灭果子,以致没有坚固的枝干可作掌权者的杖。这是哀歌,也必用以作哀歌。
Fire spread from one of its main branches and consumed its fruit. No strong branch is left on it fit for a ruler's scepter.' This is a lament and is to be used as a lament."
