Of a vine of Egypt
the Holy Bible


Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it (80:8)

Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land (80:9)

The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars (80:10)

She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river (80:11)

Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her (80:12)

The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it (80:13)

Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine (80:14)

And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself (80:15)

It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance (80:16)
