15 You were blameless in your behavior[a]
    from the day you were created
        until wickedness was discovered in you.
16 Since your vast business planning[b]
    filled you with violent intent[c]
from top to bottom,[d]
    you sinned,
so I cast you away as defiled
    from the mountain of God.
I destroyed you,
    you guardian cherub,
        from the midst of the fiery stones.
17 Your heart grew arrogant because of your beauty;
    you annihilated your own wisdom
        because of your splendor.
Then I threw you to the ground
    in the presence of kings,
        giving them a good look at you!
