Ezekiel 28:1-19; 29:17-20

Proclamation against the King of Tyre

28The word of the Lord came to me: 2Mortal, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord God:
Because your heart is proud
   and you have said, ‘I am a god;
I sit in the seat of the gods,
   in the heart of the seas’,
yet you are but a mortal, and no god,
   though you compare your mind
   with the mind of a god.
3 You are indeed wiser than Daniel;*
   no secret is hidden from you;
4 by your wisdom and your understanding
   you have amassed wealth for yourself,
and have gathered gold and silver
   into your treasuries.
5 By your great wisdom in trade
   you have increased your wealth,
   and your heart has become proud in your wealth.
6 Therefore, thus says the Lord God:
Because you compare your mind
   with the mind of a god,
7 therefore, I will bring strangers against you,
   the most terrible of the nations;
they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom
   and defile your splendour.
8 They shall thrust you down to the Pit,
   and you shall die a violent death
   in the heart of the seas.
9 Will you still say, ‘I am a god’,
   in the presence of those who kill you,
though you are but a mortal, and no god,
   in the hands of those who wound you?
10 You shall die the death of the uncircumcised
   by the hand of foreigners;
   for I have spoken, says the Lord God.

Lamentation over the King of Tyre

11 Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me: 12Mortal, raise a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord God:
You were the signet of perfection,*
   full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God;
   every precious stone was your covering,
carnelian, chrysolite, and moonstone,
   beryl, onyx, and jasper,
sapphire,* turquoise, and emerald;
   and worked in gold were your settings
   and your engravings.*
On the day that you were created
   they were prepared.
14 With an anointed cherub as guardian I placed you;*
   you were on the holy mountain of God;
   you walked among the stones of fire.
15 You were blameless in your ways
   from the day that you were created,
   until iniquity was found in you.
16 In the abundance of your trade
   you were filled with violence, and you sinned;
so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God,
   and the guardian cherub drove you out
   from among the stones of fire.
17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty;
   you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendour.
I cast you to the ground;
   I exposed you before kings,
   to feast their eyes on you.
18 By the multitude of your iniquities,
   in the unrighteousness of your trade,
   you profaned your sanctuaries.
So I brought out fire from within you;
   it consumed you,
and I turned you to ashes on the earth
   in the sight of all who saw you.
19 All who know you among the peoples
   are appalled at you;
you have come to a dreadful end
   and shall be no more for ever.

Babylonia Will Plunder Egypt

17 In the twenty-seventh year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me: 18Mortal, King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon made his army labour hard against Tyre; every head was made bald and every shoulder was rubbed bare; yet neither he nor his army got anything from Tyre to pay for the labour that he had expended against it. 19Therefore, thus says the Lord God: I will give the land of Egypt to King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon; and he shall carry off its wealth and despoil it and plunder it; and it shall be the wages for his army. 20I have given him the land of Egypt as his payment for which he laboured, because they worked for me, says the Lord God.
