Tyre's King Overthrown

1 The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, 2 "Son of man, say to the aleader of Tyre, 'Thus says the Lord bGOD, "Because your heart is lifted up And you have said, '1I am a god, I sit in the seat of cgods In the heart of the seas '; Yet you are a 2man and not God, Although you make your heart like the heart of God - 3 Behold, you are wiser than 3Daniel; There is no secret that is a match for you. 4 "By your wisdom and understanding You have acquired 4riches for yourself And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries. 5 "By your great wisdom, by your 5trade You have increased your riches And your 6heart is lifted up because of your riches - 6 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD, 'Because you have 7made your heart Like the heart of God, 7 Therefore, behold, I will bring 8strangers upon you, The 9most ruthless of the nations. And they will draw their swords Against the beauty of your wisdom And defile your splendor. 8 'They will bring you down to the pit, And you will die the 10death of those who are slain In the heart of the seas. 9 'Will you still say, "I am a god," In the presence of your slayer, Though you are a man and not God, In the hands of those who wound you? 10 'You will die the death of the 11uncircumcised By the hand of strangers, For I have spoken!' declares the Lord GOD!""' 11 Again the word of the LORD came to me saying, 12 "Son of man, 12take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre and say to him, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "You dhad the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 "You were in 13Eden, the garden of God; 14Every precious stone was your covering: The 15ruby, the topaz and the diamond; The beryl, the onyx and the jasper; The lapis lazuli, the turquoise and the emerald; And the gold, the workmanship of your e16settings and fsockets, Was in you. On the day that you were created They were prepared. 14 "You were the 17anointed cherub who gcovers, And I placed you there. You were on the holy 18mountain of God; You walked in the midst of the 19stones of fire. 15 "You were 20blameless in your ways From the day you were created Until 21unrighteousness was found in you. 16 "By the 22abundance of your trade hYou were internally 23filled with violence, And you sinned; Therefore I have cast you as profane From the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O icovering cherub, From the midst of the stones of fire. 17 "Your heart was lifted up because of your 24beauty; You 25corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I put you before 26kings, That they may see you. 18 "By the multitude of your iniquities, In the unrighteousness of your trade You profaned your sanctuaries. Therefore I have brought 27fire from the midst of you; It has consumed you, And I have turned you to 28ashes on the earth In the eyes of all who see you. 19 "All who know you among the peoples Are appalled at you; You have become j29terrified And you will cease to be 30forever .""'

Judgment of Sidon

20 And the word of the LORD came to me saying, 21 "Son of man, 31set your face toward 32Sidon, prophesy against her 22 and say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I am against you, O Sidon, And I will kbe glorified in your midst. Then they will know that I am the LORD when I 33execute judgments in her, And I will manifest My holiness in her. 23 "For 34I will send pestilence to her And blood to her streets, And the 35wounded will lfall in her midst By the sword upon her on every side; Then they will know that I am the LORD. 24 "And there will be no more for the house of Israel a 36prickling brier or a painful thorn from any round about them who scorned them; then they will know that I am the Lord GOD."

Israel Regathered

25 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "When I 37gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and will manifest My holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they will 38live in their mland which I gave to My servant Jacob. 26 "They will 39live in it securely; and they will 40build houses, plant vineyards and live securely when I 41execute judgments upon all who scorn them round about them. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God.""'
