Ezekiel 27* The merchandise of Tyre. (1-25) Its fall and ruin. (26-36)1-25 Those who live at ease are to be lamented, if they are notprepared for trouble. Let none reckon themselves beautified, anyfurther than they are sanctified. The account of the trade ofTyre intimates, that God's eye is upon men when employed inworldly business. Not only when at church, praying and hearing,but when in markets and fairs, buying and selling. In all ourdealings we should keep a conscience void of offence. God, asthe common Father of mankind, makes one country abound in onecommodity, and another in another, serviceable to the necessityor to the comfort and ornament of human life. See what ablessing trade and merchandise are to mankind, when followed inthe fear of God. Besides necessaries, an abundance of things aremade valuable only by custom; yet God allows us to use them. Butwhen riches increase, men are apt to set their hearts upon them,and forget the Lord, who gives power to get wealth. 26-36 The most mighty and magnificent kingdoms and states,sooner or later, come down. Those who make creatures theirconfidence, and rest their hopes upon them, will fall with them:happy are those who have the God of Jacob for their Help, andwhose hope is in the Lord their God, who lives for ever. Thosewho engage in trade should learn to conduct their businessaccording to God's word. Those who possess wealth shouldremember they are the Lord's stewards, and should use his goodsin doing good to all. Let us seek first the kingdom of God andhis righteousness.
