He will take from the crest of the cedar,
from its topmost branches,
tear off a tender shoot
and plant it high on a lofty mountain.
It shall put forth branches and bear good fruit
and become a majestic cedar.
Birds of every kind will dwell beneath it.
Every winged thing will rest in the shade its boughs
and all the trees of the field shall know.
That the Lord will bring low the high tree.
That the Lord will lift high the low tree.
That the Lord will wither the green tree
and make the withered tree bloom
