Wail, O cypress, for the b cedar has fallen,
Because the mighty trees are ruined.
Wail, O oaks of Bashan,
c For the thick forest has come down.

Indeed Assyria was a cedar in Lebanon, With fine branches that shaded the forest, And of high stature; And its top was among the thick boughs.
Though hail comes down on the forest, And the city is brought low in humiliation.
