Ezekiel 28

GNT 1 The Lord spoke to me. NIV 1 The word of the LORD came to me: GNT 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. NIV 2 “Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “ ‘In the pride of your heart you say, “I am a god; I sit on the throne of a god in the heart of the seas.” But you are a mere mortal and not a god, though you think you are as wise as a god. GNT 3 You think you are wiser than Danel, that no secret can be kept from you. NIV 3 Are you wiser than Daniel ? Is no secret hidden from you? GNT 4 Your wisdom and skill made you rich with treasures of gold and silver. NIV 4 By your wisdom and understanding you have gained wealth for yourself and amassed gold and silver in your treasuries. GNT 5 You made clever business deals and kept on making profits. How proud you are of your wealth! NIV 5 By your great skill in trading you have increased your wealth, and because of your wealth your heart has grown proud. GNT 6 "Now then, this is what I, the Sovereign Lord, am saying: Because you think you are as wise as a god, NIV 6 “ ‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “ ‘Because you think you are wise, as wise as a god, GNT 7 I will bring ruthless enemies to attack you. They will destroy all the beautiful things you have acquired by skill and wisdom. NIV 7 I am going to bring foreigners against you, the most ruthless of nations; they will draw their swords against your beauty and wisdom and pierce your shining splendor. GNT 8 They will kill you and send you to a watery grave. NIV 8 They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die a violent death in the heart of the seas. GNT 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. NIV 9 Will you then say, “I am a god,” in the presence of those who kill you? You will be but a mortal, not a god, in the hands of those who slay you. GNT 10 You will die like a dog at the hand of godless foreigners. I, the Sovereign Lord, have given the command." NIV 10 You will die the death of the uncircumcised at the hands of foreigners. I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD.’ ” GNT 11 The Lord spoke to me again. NIV 11 The word of the LORD came to me: GNT 12 "Mortal man," he said, "grieve for the fate that is waiting for the king of Tyre. Tell him what I, the Sovereign Lord, am saying: You were once an example of perfection. How wise and handsome you were! NIV 12 “Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “ ‘You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. GNT 13 You lived in Eden, the garden of God, and wore gems of every kind: rubies and diamonds; topaz, beryl, carnelian, and jasper; sapphires, emeralds, and garnets. You had ornaments of gold. They were made for you on the day you were created. NIV 13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: carnelian, chrysolite and emerald, topaz, onyx and jasper, lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl.Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared. GNT 14 I put a terrifying angel there to guard you. You lived on my holy mountain and walked among sparkling gems. NIV 14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. GNT 15 Your conduct was perfect from the day you were created until you began to do evil. NIV 15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you. GNT 16 You were busy buying and selling, and this led you to violence and sin. So I forced you to leave my holy mountain, and the angel who guarded you drove you away from the sparkling gems. NIV 16 Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. GNT 17 You were proud of being handsome, and your fame made you act like a fool. Because of this I hurled you to the ground and left you as a warning to other kings. NIV 17 Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings. GNT 18 You did such evil in buying and selling that your places of worship were corrupted. So I set fire to the city and burned it to the ground. All who look at you now see you reduced to ashes. NIV 18 By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching. GNT 19 You are gone, gone forever, and all the nations that had come to know you are terrified, afraid that they will share your fate." NIV 19 All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.’ ” GNT 20 The Lord said to me, NIV 20 The word of the LORD came to me: GNT 21 "Mortal man, denounce the city of Sidon. NIV 21 “Son of man, set your face against Sidon; prophesy against her GNT 22 Tell the people there what I, the Sovereign Lord, say about them: I am your enemy, Sidon; people will praise me because of what I do to you. They will know that I am the Lord, when I show how holy I am by punishing those who live in you. NIV 22 and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “ ‘I am against you, Sidon, and among you I will display my glory. You will know that I am the LORD, when I inflict punishment on you and within you am proved to be holy. GNT 23 I will send diseases on you and make blood flow in your streets. You will be attacked from every side, and your people will be killed. Then you will know that I am the Lord." NIV 23 I will send a plague upon you and make blood flow in your streets. The slain will fall within you, with the sword against you on every side. Then you will know that I am the LORD. GNT 24 The Lord said, "None of the surrounding nations that treated Israel with scorn will ever again be like thorns and briers to hurt Israel. And they will know that I am the Sovereign Lord." NIV 24 “ ‘No longer will the people of Israel have malicious neighbors who are painful briers and sharp thorns. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign LORD. GNT 25 The Sovereign Lord said, "I will bring back the people of Israel from the nations where I scattered them, and all the nations will know that I am holy. The people of Israel will live in their own land, the land that I gave to my servant Jacob. NIV 25 “ ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: When I gather the people of Israel from the nations where they have been scattered, I will be proved holy through them in the sight of the nations. Then they will live in their own land, which I gave to my servant Jacob. GNT 26 They will live there in safety. They will build houses and plant vineyards. I will punish all their neighbors who treated them with scorn, and Israel will be secure. Then they will know that I am the Lord their God." NIV 26 They will live there in safety and will build houses and plant vineyards; they will live in safety when I inflict punishment on all their neighbors who maligned them. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God.’ ”
