Branch -

A symbol of kings descended from royal ancestors (Ezekiel 17:3,10; Daniel 11:7); of prosperity (Job 8:16); of the Messiah, a branch out of the root of the stem of Jesse (Isaiah 11:1), the "beautiful branch" (4:2), a "righteous branch" (Jeremiah 23:5), "the Branch" (Zechariah 3:8; 6:12).

Disciples are branches of the true vine (John 15:5,6). "The branch of the terrible ones" (Isaiah 25:5) is rightly translated in the Revised Version "the song of the terrible ones," i.e., the song of victory shall be brought low by the destruction of Babylon and the return of the Jews from captivity.

The "abominable branch" is a tree on which a malefactor has been hanged (Isaiah 14:19). The "highest branch" in Ezekiel 17:3 represents Jehoiakim the king.
