Ezekiel 19:11-13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
11 One strong branch grew
into a royal scepter.
So tall it towered among the clouds,
conspicuous in height,
with dense foliage.
12 But she was torn out in fury
and flung to the ground;
The east wind withered her up,
her fruit was plucked away;
Her strongest branch dried up,
fire devoured it.
13 Now she is planted in a wilderness,
in a dry, parched land.
