Ezekiel 28:12–18

12 “Son of man, take up a lamenti concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“ ‘You were the seal of perfection,

full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.j

13 You were in Eden,k

the garden of God;l

every precious stonem adorned you:

carnelian, chrysolite and emerald,

topaz, onyx and jasper,

lapis lazuli, turquoisen and beryl.b

Your settings and mountingsc were made of gold;

on the day you were created they were prepared.o

14 You were anointedp as a guardian cherub,q

for so I ordained you.

You were on the holy mount of God;

you walked among the fiery stones.

15 You were blameless in your ways

from the day you were created

till wickedness was found in you.

16 Through your widespread trade

you were filled with violence,r

and you sinned.

So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God,

and I expelled you, guardian cherub,s

from among the fiery stones.

17 Your heart became proudt

on account of your beauty,

and you corrupted your wisdom

because of your splendor.

So I threw you to the earth;

I made a spectacle of you before kings.u

18 By your many sins and dishonest trade

you have desecrated your sanctuaries.

So I made a firev come out from you,

and it consumed you,

and I reduced you to ashesw on the ground

in the sight of all who were watching.x
