Ezekiel 28:1-11

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.
