Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine
heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the
midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the
heart of God:
Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from
With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast
gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine
heart is lifted up because of thy riches:
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart
Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations:
and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall
defile thy brightness.
They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that
are slain in the midst of the seas.
Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man,
and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have
spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus
saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering,
the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire,
the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy
pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon
the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of
Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity
was found in thee.
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with
violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the
mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the
stones of fire.
Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by
reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings,
that they may behold thee.
Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the
iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee,
it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all
them that behold thee.
All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be
a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against it,
And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Zidon; and I will be
glorified in the midst of thee: and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall
have executed judgements in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets; and the wounded
shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon her on every side; and they shall
know that I am the LORD.
And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor any
grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised them; and they shall
know that I am the Lord GOD.
Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the
people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of
the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant
And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards;
yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgements upon all those
that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their
