The cypress and the oaks of Zechariah

2 Wail, O cypress, for the cedar has fallen,
Because the glorious trees have been destroyed;
Wail, O oaks of Bashan *,
For the impenetrable forest has come down.

Zechariah xi v. 2

*Bashan means smooth and is east of the River Jordan; now the Golan Heights see the map below.
