2 “Son of man, say to the [a]leader of Tyre, ‘Thus says the Lord [b]God,
“Because your heart is lifted up And you have said, ‘I am a god, I sit in the seat of [c]gods In the heart of the seas’; Yet you are a man and not God, Although you make your heart like the heart of God—
Ezekiel 28:12-17New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord God,
“You [a]had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 “You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The ruby, the topaz and the diamond; The beryl, the onyx and the jasper; The lapis lazuli, the turquoise and the emerald; And the gold, the workmanship of your [b]settings and [c]sockets, Was in you. On the day that you were created They were prepared. 14 “You were the anointed cherub who [d]covers, And I placed you there. You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 “You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created Until unrighteousness was found in you. 16 “By the abundance of your trade [e]You were internally filled with violence, And you sinned; Therefore I have cast you as profane From the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O [f]covering cherub, From the midst of the stones of fire. 17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I put you before kings, That they may see you.
