Ezekiel 28:1–10

Prophecy Against the Prince of Tyre

28 The word of the Lord came to me: h“Son of man, say to ithe prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord God:

j“Because your heart is proud,

and kyou have said, ‘I am a god,

I sit in the seat of the gods,

in the heart of the seas,’

yet lyou are but a man, and no god,

mthough you make your heart like the heart of a god—

nyou are indeed wiser othan pDaniel;

no secret is hidden from you;

by your wisdom and your understanding

qyou have made wealth for yourself,

and have gathered gold and silver

into your treasuries;

by your great wisdom in your trade

you have increased your wealth,

and jyour heart has become proud in your wealth—

therefore thus says the Lord God:

rBecause you make your heart

like the heart of a god,

therefore, behold, I will bring sforeigners upon you,

the most ruthless of the nations;

and they shall draw their swords against tthe beauty of your wisdom

and defile tyour splendor.

uThey shall thrust you down into the pit,

vand you shall die the death of the slain

in the heart of the seas.

wWill you still say, ‘I am a god,’

in the presence of those who kill you,

though lyou are but a man, and no god,

in the hands of those who slay you?

10  xYou shall die the death of the uncircumcised

by the hand of foreigners;

yfor I have spoken, declares the Lord God.”
