The planted sprig in Israel (Ezek 17:23-17:23)

“I will plant it

On the mountain height

Of Israel.

Thus it may produce

Boughs.

It will bear fruit.

It will become

A noble cedar.

Under it,

Every kind of bird

Will live.

In the shade

Of its branches,

Will nest

Winged creatures

Of every kind.”

Yahweh said that he was going to plant this tender sprig on a high mountain in Israel. There it would produce branches and fruit. It would become a large noble cedar tree. Every kind of bird would live under its shade. All kinds of winged creatures would nest in its branches. It almost sounds like a bird sanctuary in Israel.
