17  Sicut cedrus exaltata sum in Libano et sicut cypressus in monte Sion: quasi myrrha electa, dedi suavitatem odoris.
20  Et sicut cinnamomum et balsamum aromatizans: dedi suavitatem odoris.

17  I was exalted like a cedar in Libanus, and as a cypress tree on mount Sion: I yielded a sweet odour like the best myrrh.
20  And like cinnamon and aromatical balm: I yielded a sweet odour.
