12 (A)“Son of man, (B)raise a lamentation over (C)the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord God:

“You were the signet of perfection,[a]
    (D)full of wisdom and (E)perfect in beauty.
13 You were in (F)Eden, the garden of God;
    (G)every precious stone was your covering,
(H)sardius, topaz, and diamond,
    beryl, onyx, and jasper,
sapphire,[b] (I)emerald, and carbuncle;
    and crafted in gold were your settings
    and your engravings.[c]
(J)On the day that you were created
    they were prepared.
14 You were an anointed (K)guardian cherub.
    I placed you;[d] you were on (L)the holy mountain of God;
    in the midst of the stones of fire you walked.
15 You were blameless in your ways
    (M)from the day you were created,
    till unrighteousness was found in you.
16 In the abundance of (N)your trade
    you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned;
so I cast you as a profane thing from (O)the mountain of God,
    and I destroyed you,[e] (P)O guardian cherub,
    from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 (Q)Your heart was proud because of (R)your beauty;
    you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor.
I cast you to the ground;
    I exposed you before kings,
    to feast their eyes on you.
