The lioness is Judah (Gen 49.9
). The first cub is Jehoahaz, the king who was taken to Egypt (2 Kings 23.30–34; Jer 22.10–12
). The second cub could be Jehoiachin (Jer 22.24–30; 2 Kings 24.8–16
), but is more likely Zedekiah, likewise exiled to Babylon (2 Kings 25.7; Jer 39.7
). If the latter, the two cubs would have the same literal mother, Hamutal (2 Kings 23.31; 24.18
The vine is Judah. The strongest stem is Zedekiah, who was dried up by the east wind (Nebuchadrezzar,
) and transplanted (taken to Babylon).
