This is what the Lord, the LORD Almighty, says: “Go, say to this steward, to Shebna the palace administrator:
What are you doing here and who gave you permission to cut out a grave for yourself here, hewing your grave on the height and chiseling your resting place in the rock?
“Beware, the LORD is about to take firm hold of you and hurl you away, you mighty man.
He will roll you up tightly like a ball and throw you into a large country. There you will die and there the chariots you were so proud of will become a disgrace to your master’s house.
I will depose you from your office, and you will be ousted from your position.
“In that day I will summon my servant, Eliakim son of Hilkiah.
