28 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, say unto athe prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord God; bBecause cthine heart is lifted up, and dthou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, ein the †midst of the seas; yet fthou art a man, and not God, though gthou set thine heart as the heart of God: 3 Behold, hthou art wiser than iDaniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: 4 hjWith thy wisdom and with thine understanding kthou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: 5 †By thy great wisdom and by lthy traffick khast thou increased thy riches, and cmthine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: 6 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because gthou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; 7 Behold, therefore I will bring nstrangers upon thee, opthe terrible of the nations: and othey shall draw their swords against qthe beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile qthy brightness. 8 They shall bring thee down rto the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain ein the midst of the seas. 9 dWilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but fthou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that ||slayeth thee. 10 Thou shalt die the deaths of sthe uncircumcised by the hand of nstrangers: for tI have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
11 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 12 Son of man, utake up a lamentation upon athe king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up vthe sum, hfull of wisdom, and wperfect in beauty. 13 Thou hast been in xEden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, ythe ||sardius, yztopaz, and athe diamond, bthe ||beryl, cthe onyx, and dthe jasper, ethe sapphire, fthe ||emerald, and gthe carbuncle, and cgold: hthe workmanship of thy itabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in kthe day that thou wast created. 14 Thou art the anointed lcherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon mthe holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of nthe stones of fire. 15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from kthe day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16 By the multitude of othy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of mthe mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, lO covering cherub, from the midst of nthe stones of fire. 17 pThine heart was lifted up because of qthy beauty, thou hast corrupted qthy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. 18 rThou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of othy traffick; therefore swill 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. 19 All they that know thee among the people tshall be astonished at thee: uthou shalt be †a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
20 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 21 Son of man, vset thy face wagainst Zidon, and vprophesy against it, 22 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; xBehold, I am against thee, O Zidon; and xxI will be glorified in the midst of thee: and ythey shall know that I am the Lord, yywhen I shall have executed judgments in her, zand shall be sanctified in her. 23 For I will send into her apestilence, and ablood into her streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon her on every side; band they shall know that I am the Lord. 24 And cthere shall be no more da pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor any grieving thorn eof all that are round about them, fthat despised them; band they shall know that I am the Lord God. 25 Thus saith the Lord God; gWhen I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and bgshall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then hshall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob. 26 And ithey shall dwell ||safely therein, and shall kbuild houses, and kplant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, bwhen I have executed judgments fupon all those that ||despise them round about them; band they shall know that I am the Lord their God.
