2 Chronicles 25:18

In the parable, Amaziah of Judah is the thistle, and Joash of Israel is the cedar. A cedar is mighty and strong, while a thistle is so weak that a little old forest animal could trample it to smithereens and scatter it. He is taunting them, "Try to attack me, and I will step on you like on a thistle, and all the seeds will blow everywhere." Well, Amaziah, in his puffed-up pride, having just won a battle against the Edomites says "Heh, heh, I will get you," but he did not get them. He went to battle against Israel, and he got himself smashed, just as Joash said he would be.
