Ezekiel 28

28:1 The word of the LORD came again to me, saying,
28:2 Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus saith the Lord
 GOD; Because thy heart [is] lifted up, and thou hast said, I
 [am] a god, I sit [in] the seat of God, in the midst of the
 seas; yet thou [art] a man, and not God, though thou settest
 thy heart as the heart of God:
28:3 Behold, thou [art] wiser than Daniel; there is no secret
 that they can hide from thee:
28:4 With thy wisdom and with thy understanding thou hast gained
 for thee riches, and hast gained gold and silver into thy
28:5 By thy great wisdom [and] by thy traffick hast thou
 increased thy riches, and thy heart is lifted up because of thy
28:6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set
 thy heart as the heart of God;
28:7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the
 terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords
 against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy
28:8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die
 the deaths of [them that are] slain in the midst of the seas.
28:9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I [am] God?
 but thou [shalt be] a man, and no god, in the hand of him that
 slayeth thee.
28:10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand
 of strangers: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD.
28:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyre,
 and say to him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the
 sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious
 stone [was] thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond,
 the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald,
 and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and
 of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast
28:14 Thou [art] the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have
 set thee [so]: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou
 hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
28:15 Thou [wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou
 wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the
 midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I
 will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I
 will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the
 stones of fire.
28:17 Thy heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast
 corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast
 thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may
 behold thee.
28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thy
 iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I
 bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour
 thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the
 sight of all them that behold thee.
28:19 All they that know thee among the people shall be
 astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never [shalt]
 thou [be] any more.
28:20 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
28:21 Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy
 against it,
28:22 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I [am] against
 thee, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee:
 and they shall know that I [am] the LORD, when I shall have
 executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
28:23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her
 streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by
 the sword upon her on every side; and they shall know that I
 [am] the LORD.
28:24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier to the house
 of Israel, nor [any] grieving thorn of all [that are] around
 them, that despised them; and they shall know that I [am] the
 Lord GOD.
28:25 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the
 house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered,
 and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen,
 then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my
 servant Jacob.
28:26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build
 houses, and plant vineyards; yes, they shall dwell with
 confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that
 despise them around them; and they shall know that I [am] the
 LORD their God.
