Ezekiel 28

Tyre’s King Overthrown

1The word of the  Lord came again to me, saying, 2Son of man, say to the
Or ruler, prince
leader of Tyre, ‘Thus says the Lord
Heb YHWH, usually rendered  Lord , and so throughout the ch
 God, Because your heart is lifted up
And you have said, ‘ c  I am a god,
I sit in the seat of
Or God
In the heart of the seas’;
Yet you are a e  man and not God,
Although you make your heart like the heart of God
3Behold, you are wiser than f  Daniel;
There is no secret that is a match for you.
4By your wisdom and understanding
You have acquired g  riches for yourself
And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries.
5By your great wisdom, by your h  trade
You have increased your riches
And your i  heart is lifted up because of your riches

6Therefore thus says the Lord  God, Because you have j  made your heart
Like the heart of God,
7Therefore, behold, I will bring k  strangers upon you,
The l  most ruthless of the nations.
And they will draw their swords
Against the beauty of your wisdom
And defile your splendor.
8They will bring you down to the pit,
And you will die the m  death of those who are slain
In the heart of the seas.
9Will you still say, “I am a god,”
In the presence of your slayer,
Though you are a man and not God,
In the hands of those who wound you?
10You will die the death of the n  uncircumcised
By the hand of strangers,
For I have spoken!’ declares the Lord  God!”’”

11Again the word of the  Lord came to me saying, 12Son of man, o  take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord  God, “You
Lit were the one sealing a pattern
had the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13“You were in q  Eden, the garden of God;
r  Every precious stone was your covering:
The s  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
Or tambourines
u  settings and
Or flutes
Was in you.
On the day that you were created
They were prepared.
14“You were the w  anointed cherub who
Or guards
And I placed you there.
You were on the holy y  mountain of God;
You walked in the midst of the z  stones of fire.
15“You were aa  blameless in your ways
From the day you were created
Until ab  unrighteousness was found in you.
16“By the ac  abundance of your trade
Lit They filled your midst
You were internally ae  filled with violence,
And you sinned;
Therefore I have cast you as profane
From the mountain of God.
And I have destroyed you, O
Or guardian
covering cherub,
From the midst of the stones of fire.
17Your heart was lifted up because of your ag  beauty;
You ah  corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor.
I cast you to the ground;
I put you before ai  kings,
That they may see you.
18By the multitude of your iniquities,
In the unrighteousness of your trade
You profaned your sanctuaries.
Therefore I have brought aj  fire from the midst of you;
It has consumed you,
And I have turned you to ak  ashes on the earth
In the eyes of all who see you.
19All who know you among the peoples
Are appalled at you;
You have become
Lit terrors
am  terrified
And you will cease to be an  forever.”’”

Judgment of Sidon

20And the word of the  Lord came to me saying, 21Son of man, ao  set your face toward ap  Sidon, prophesy against her 22and say, ‘Thus says the Lord  God, Behold, I am against you, O Sidon,
And I will
Or glorify Myself
be glorified in your midst.
Then they will know that I am the  Lord when I ar  execute judgments in her,
And I will manifest My holiness in her.
23“For as  I will send pestilence to her
And blood to her streets,
And the at  wounded will
Or be judged
fall in her midst
By the sword upon her on every side;
Then they will know that I am the  Lord.

24And there will be no more for the house of Israel a av  prickling brier or a painful thorn from any round about them who scorned them; then they will know that I am the Lord  God.”

Israel Regathered

25Thus says the Lord  God, “When I aw  gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and will manifest My holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they will ax  live in their
Lit ground
land which I gave to My servant Jacob.
26“They will az  live in it securely; and they will ba  build houses, plant vineyards and live securely when I bb  execute judgments upon all who scorn them round about them. Then they will know that I am the  Lord their God.”’”
