Ezekiel 31:15-17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 Thus says the Lord God:
On the day it went down to Sheol,
    I made the deep close up
    in mourning for it.
I restrained the currents of the deep,
    and held back the many waters.
I darkened Lebanon because of it,
    and all the trees of the field
    languished because of it.
16 At the sound of its fall,
    I made nations shudder,
When I cast it down to Sheol
    with those who go down to the pit.
In the underworld
    all the trees of Eden took comfort:
Lebanon’s choicest and best,
    all that were fed by the waters.
17 They too will go down to Sheol,
    to those slain by the sword,
Its allies[a] who dwelt
    in its shade among the nations.
