Ezekiel - Chapter 28
  • 1. The LORD spoke to me.
  • 2. "Mortal man," he said, "tell the ruler of Tyre what I, the Sovereign LORD, am saying to him: Puffed up with pride, you claim to be a god. You say that like a god you sit on a throne, surrounded by the seas. You may pretend to be a god, but, no, you are mortal, not divine.
  • 3. You think you are wiser than Danel, that no secret can be kept from you.
  • 4. Your wisdom and skill made you rich with treasures of gold and silver.
  • 5. You made clever business deals and kept on making profits. How proud you are of your wealth!
  • 6. "Now then, this is what I, the Sovereign LORD, am saying: Because you think you are as wise as a god,
  • 7. I will bring ruthless enemies to attack you. They will destroy all the beautiful things you have acquired by skill and wisdom.
  • 8. They will kill you and send you to a watery grave.
  • 9. When they come to kill you, will you still claim that you are a god? When you face your murderers, you will be mortal and not at all divine.
  • 10. You will die like a dog at the hand of godless foreigners. I, the Sovereign LORD, have given the command."
  • 11. The LORD spoke to me again.
  • 12. "Mortal man," he said, "grieve for the fate that is waiting for the king of Tyre. Tell him what I, the Sovereign LORD, am saying: You were once an example of perfection. How wise and handsome you were!
  • 13. You lived in Eden, the garden of God, and wore gems of every kind: rubies and diamonds; topaz, beryl, carnelian, and jasper; sapphires, emeralds, and garnets. You had ornaments of gold. They were made for you on the day you were created.
  • 14. I put a terrifying angel there to guard you. You lived on my holy mountain and walked among sparkling gems.
  • 15. Your conduct was perfect from the day you were created until you began to do evil.
  • 16. You were busy buying and selling, and this led you to violence and sin. So I forced you to leave my holy mountain, and the angel who guarded you drove you away from the sparkling gems.
  • 17. You were proud of being handsome, and your fame made you act like a fool. Because of this I hurled you to the ground and left you as a warning to other kings.
  • 18. You did such evil in buying and selling that your places of worship were corrupted. So I set fire to the city and burned it to the ground. All who look at you now see you reduced to ashes.
  • 19. You are gone, gone forever, and all the nations that had come to know you are terrified, afraid that they will share your fate."
  • 20. The LORD said to me,
  • 21. "Mortal man, denounce the city of Sidon.
  • 22. Tell the people there what I, the Sovereign LORD, say about them: I am your enemy, Sidon; people will praise me because of what I do to you. They will know that I am the LORD, when I show how holy I am by punishing those who live in you.
  • 23. I will send diseases on you and make blood flow in your streets. You will be attacked from every side, and your people will be killed. Then you will know that I am the LORD."
  • 24. The LORD said, "None of the surrounding nations that treated Israel with scorn will ever again be like thorns and briers to hurt Israel. And they will know that I am the Sovereign LORD."
  • 25. The Sovereign LORD said, "I will bring back the people of Israel from the nations where I scattered them, and all the nations will know that I am holy. The people of Israel will live in their own land, the land that I gave to my servant Jacob.
  • 26. They will live there in safety. They will build houses and plant vineyards. I will punish all their neighbors who treated them with scorn, and Israel will be secure. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God."
