Ezekiel 28:2-8

2 aSon of man, say to bthe prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord God:

c“Because your heart is proud,
and dyou have said, ‘I am a god,
I sit in the seat of the gods,
in the heart of the seas,’
yet eyou are but a man, and no god,
fthough you make your heart like the heart of a god
3 gyou are indeed wiser hthan iDaniel;
no secret is hidden from you;
4by your wisdom and your understanding
jyou have made wealth for yourself,
and have gathered gold and silver
into your treasuries;
5by your great wisdom in your trade
you have increased your wealth,
and kyour heart has become proud in your wealth
6therefore thus says the Lord God:
lBecause you make your heart
like the heart of a god,
7therefore, behold, I will bring mforeigners upon you,
the most ruthless of the nations;
and they shall draw their swords against nthe beauty of your wisdom
and defile oyour splendor.
8 pThey shall thrust you down into the pit,
qand you shall die the death of the slain
in the heart of the seas.
