14 You were an anointed (A)guardian cherub.
    I placed you;[a] you were on (B)the holy mountain of God;
    in the midst of the stones of fire you walked.
15 You were blameless in your ways
    (C)from the day you were created,
    till unrighteousness was found in you.
16 In the abundance of (D)your trade
    you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned;
so I cast you as a profane thing from (E)the mountain of God,
    and I destroyed you,[b] (F)O guardian cherub,
    from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 (G)Your heart was proud because of (H)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.
18 By the multitude of your iniquities,
    in the unrighteousness of your trade
    you profaned your sanctuaries;
so (I)I brought fire out from your midst;
    it consumed you,
and I turned you to ashes on the earth
    (J)in the sight of all who saw you.
19 All who know you among the peoples
    are appalled at you;
(K)you have come to a dreadful end
    and shall be no more forever.”
