Ezekiel 26* A prophecy against Tyre.1-14 To be secretly pleased with the death or decay of others,when we are likely to get by it; or with their fall, when we maythrive upon it, is a sin that easily besets us, yet is notthought so bad as really it is. But it comes from a selfish,covetous principle, and from that love of the world as ourhappiness, which the love of God expressly forbids. He oftenblasts the projects of those who would raise themselves on theruin of others. The maxims most current in the trading world,are directly opposed to the law of God. But he will show himselfagainst the money-loving, selfish traders, whose hearts, likethose of Tyre, are hardened by the love of riches. Men havelittle cause to glory in things which stir up the envy andrapacity of others, and which are continually shifting from oneto another; and in getting, keeping, and spending which, menprovoke that God whose wrath turns joyous cities into ruinousheaps. 15-21 See how high, how great Tyre had been. See how low Tyreis made. The fall of others should awaken us out of security.Every discovery of the fulfilment of a Scripture prophecy, islike a miracle to confirm our faith. All that is earthly isvanity and vexation. Those who now have the most establishedprosperity, will soon be out of sight and forgotten.
