Thus says the Lord GOD of hosts, "Come, go to this steward, to Shebna, who is over the household, and say to him:
What have you to do here and whom have you here, that you have hewn here a tomb for yourself, you who hew a tomb on the height, and carve a habitation for yourself in the rock?
Behold, the LORD will hurl you away violently, O you strong man. He will seize firm hold on you,
and whirl you round and round, and throw you like a ball into a wide land; there you shall die, and there shall be your splendid chariots, you shame of your master's house.
I will thrust you from your office, and you will be cast down from your station.
In that day I will call my servant Eli'akim the son of Hilki'ah,
and I will clothe him with your robe, and will bind your girdle on him, and will commit your authority to his hand; and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah.
And I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David; he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
