"Son of man, take up a lament1 concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: " 'You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.213
You were in Eden,3 the garden of God;4 every precious stone5 adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire,a turquoise6 and beryl.b Your settings and mountingsc were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.714
You were anointed8 as a guardian cherub,9 for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones.
You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.
