NASB — Ezekiel 28 — KJV

Tyre’s King Overthrown

1 The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, say to the Ileader of Tyre, ‘Thus says the Lord IIGOD,
  “Because your heart is lifted up
  And you have said, ‘aI am a god,
  I sit in the seat of IIIgods
  In the heart of the seas’;
  Yet you are a bman and not God,
  Although you make your heart like the heart of God
  3 Behold, you are wiser than aDaniel;
  There is no secret that is a match for you.
  4 “By your wisdom and understanding
  You have acquired ariches for yourself
  And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries.
  5 “By your great wisdom, by your atrade
  You have increased your riches
  And your bheart is lifted up because of your riches
6 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD,
  ‘Because you have amade your heart
  Like the heart of God,
  7 Therefore, behold, I will bring astrangers upon you,
  The bmost 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 adeath 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 auncircumcised
  By the hand of strangers,
  For I have spoken!’ declares the Lord GOD!”’”

God's judgment upon the prince of Tyrus for his sacrilegious pride.

1 ¶ The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart [is] lifted up, and thou hast said, I [am] a God, I sit [in] the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou [art] a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God: 3 Behold, thou [art] wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: 4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: 5 By thy great wisdom [and] by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: 6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; 7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. 8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of [them that are] slain in the midst of the seas. 9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I [am] God? but thou [shalt be] a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. 10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD.

A lamentation of his great glory corrupted by sin.

11 ¶ Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone [was] thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14 Thou [art] the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee [so]: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15 Thou [wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. 18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never [shalt] thou [be] any more.
