Ezekiel 28:11–19

11 Again the word of the Lord came to me saying,

12 “Son of man, atake up a lamentation over the king of Tyre and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God,

“You 1had the seal of perfection,

Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

13 “You were in aEden, the garden of God;

bEvery precious stone was your covering:

The cruby, the topaz and the diamond;

The beryl, the onyx and the jasper;

The lapis lazuli, the turquoise and the emerald;

And the gold, the workmanship of your 1dsettings and 2sockets,

Was in you.

On the day that you were created

They were prepared.

14 “You were the aanointed cherub who 1covers,

And I placed you there.

You were on the holy bmountain of God;

You walked in the midst of the cstones of fire.

15 “You were ablameless in your ways

From the day you were created

Until bunrighteousness was found in you.

16 “By the aabundance of your trade

1You were internally bfilled with violence,

And you sinned;

Therefore I have cast you as profane

From the mountain of God.

And I have destroyed you, O 2covering cherub,

From the midst of the stones of fire.

17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your abeauty;

You bcorrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor.

I cast you to the ground;

I put you before ckings,

That they may see you.

18 “By the multitude of your iniquities,

In the unrighteousness of your trade

You profaned your sanctuaries.

Therefore I have brought afire from the midst of you;

It has consumed you,

And I have turned you to bashes on the earth

In the eyes of all who see you.

19 “All who know you among the peoples

Are appalled at you;

You have become 1aterrified

And you will cease to be bforever.” ’ ”
