Because your heart is proud
and you have said, “I am a god;
I sit in the seat of the gods,
in the heart of the seas,”
yet you are but a mortal, and no god,
though you compare your mind
with the mind of a god.
3 You are indeed wiser than Daniel;a
no secret is hidden from you;
you have amassed wealth for yourself,
and have gathered gold and silver
into your treasuries.
you have increased your wealth,
and your heart has become proud in your wealth.
Because you compare your mind
with the mind of a god,
the most terrible of the nations;
they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom
and defile your splendor.
and you shall die a violent death
in the heart of the seas.
in the presence of those who kill you,
though you are but a mortal, and no god,
in the hands of those who wound you?
by the hand of foreigners;
for I have spoken, says the Lord God.
