    Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down.

    World English Bible

    Wail, fir
    tree, for the cedar has fallen, because the stately ones are destroyed. Wail, you oaks of Bashan, for the strong forest has come down.

    Douay-Rheims - Zechariah 11:2

    Howl, thou fir
    tree, for the cedar is fallen, for the mighty are laid waste: howl, ye oaks of Basan, because the fenced forest is cut down.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Howl, fir-tree, for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are laid
    waste: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:2

    Aúlla, oh haya, porque el cedro cayó, porque los magníficos son talados. Aullad, alcornoques de Basán, porque el fuerte monte es derribado.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Zechariah 11:2

    Verse 2.
    Howl, fir tree] This seems to point out the fall and destruction of all the mighty men.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2.
    Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen , etc.] By which are designed the princes, nobles, and magistrates of the land: so the Targum interprets them of kings and princes; (see Na 2:3 Ezekiel 31:3): because all the mighty are spoiled ; which is an explanation of the figurative expressions in the former clause, and in the following; and designs rich men, as the Targum paraphrases it, who at this time would be spoiled of their wealth and substance. Howl, O ye oaks of Bashan ; which the Targum interprets of governors of provinces; and men of power and authority are doubtless intended; (see Isaiah 2:13 Amos 2:9): for the forest of the vintage is come down ; or rather, “the fortified forest”; meaning the city of Jerusalem, which was a fortified place, and like a forest full of trees, for number of inhabitants, but now cut down and destroyed; (see Isaiah 10:16-19).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-3 - In figurative expressions, that
    destruction of Jerusalem, and of the Jewish church and nation, is foretold, which our Lord Jesus, when the time was at hand, prophesied plainly and expressly. How can the fi trees stand, if the cedars fall? The falls of the wise and good int sin, and the falls of the rich and great into trouble, are loud alarm to those every way their inferiors. It is sad with a people, when thos who should be as shepherds to them, are as young lions. The pride of Jordan was the thickets on the banks; and when the river overflowed the banks, the lions came up from them roaring. Thus the doom of Jerusale may alarm other churches.
