With its rivers it continually [d]extended all around its planting place, And sent out its channels to all the trees of the field. 5 ‘Therefore its height was loftier than all the trees of the field And its boughs became many and its branches long Because of many waters [e]as it spread them out. 6 ‘All the birds of the heavens nested in its boughs, And under its branches all the beasts of the field gave birth, And all great nations lived under its shade. 7 ‘So it was beautiful in its greatness, in the length of its branches; For its [f]roots extended to many waters. 8 ‘The cedars in God’s garden [g]could not match it; The [h]cypresses [i]could not compare with its boughs, And the plane trees [j]could not match its branches. No tree in God’s garden [k]could compare with it in its beauty. 9 ‘I made it beautiful with the multitude of its branches, And all the trees of Eden, which were in the garden of God, were jealous of it.
