21"Son of man, say to 2the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord GOD: 3"Because your heart is proud, and 4you have said, 'I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods, in the heart of the seas,' yet 5you are but a man, and no god, 6though you make your heart like the heart of a god--

You were in 27Eden, the garden of God; 28every precious stone was your covering, 29sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire,b30emerald, and carbuncle; and crafted in gold were your settings and your engravings.c31On the day that you were created they were prepared.
In the abundance of 35your trade you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned; so I cast you as a profane thing from 36the mountain of God, and I destroyed you,e37O guardian cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries; so 40I brought fire out from your midst; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes on the earth 41in the sight of all who saw you.
and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, 47I am against you, O Sidon, and 48I will manifest my glory in your midst. And 49they shall know that I am the LORD 50when I execute judgments in her and 51manifest my holiness in her;
"And for the house of Israel 53there shall be no more a brier to prick or 54a thorn to hurt them among all their neighbors 55who have treated them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord GOD.
"Thus says the Lord GOD: 56When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and 57manifest my holiness in them in the sight of the nations, 58then they shall dwell in their own land that I gave to my servant Jacob.
2659And they shall dwell securely in it, and they shall build houses and plant vineyards. They shall dwell securely, 60when I execute judgments upon all their neighbors 61who have treated them with contempt. 62Then they will know that I am the LORD their God."
