1The word of Yahweh came again to me, saying,
  2“Son of man, tell the ruler of Tyre: This is what the Lord Yahweh says:

 Because your heart is lifted up

 and you have said, ‘I am a god,

 I sit in the seat of God,

 in the middle of the seas,’

 yet you are man, and not God,

 though you set your heart

 as the heart of God–

 

 3 behold, you are wiser than Daniel;

 there is no secret that is hidden from you;

 

 4 by your wisdom and by your understanding

 you have gotten yourself riches,

 and have gotten gold and silver

 into your treasures;

 

 5 by your great wisdom and by your merchandise

 you have increased your riches,

 and your heart is lifted up

 because of your riches–

 

6Therefore this is what the Lord Yahweh says:

 Because you have set your heart as the heart of God,

 

 7 therefore behold, I will bring strangers on you,

 the terrible of the nations;

 and they will draw their swords

 against the beauty of your wisdom,

 and they will defile your brightness.

 

 8 They will bring you down to the pit,

 and you will die the death of those who are slain

 in the heart of the seas.

 

 9 Will you yet say

 before him who kills you, ‘I am God?’

 But you are man, and not God,

 in the hand of him who wounds you.

 

 10 You will die the death of the uncircumcised

 by the hand of strangers:

 for I have spoken it,

 says the Lord Yahweh.”

 

11Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
  12“Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and tell him: This is what the Lord Yahweh says:

 You seal up the sum,

 full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

 

 13 You were in Eden, the garden of God;

 every precious stone adorned you:

 jewels, topaz, emerald,

 chrysolite, onyx, jasper,

 sapphire, turquoise, and beryl.

 Gold work of tambourines and of pipes was in you.

 In the day that you were created they were prepared.

 

 14 You were the anointed cherub who covers,

 and I set you

 so that you were on the holy mountain of God;

 you have walked up and down in the middle of the stones of fire.

 

 15 You were perfect in your ways

 from the day that you were created,

 until unrighteousness was found in you.

 

 16 By the abundance of your merchandise

 they filled the midst of you with violence,

 and you have sinned;

 therefore I have cast you as profane

 out of the mountain of God;

 and I have destroyed you, covering cherub,

 from the middle of the stones of fire.

 

 17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;

 you have corrupted your wisdom

 by reason of your brightness.

 I have cast you to the ground;

 I have laid you before kings,

 that they may see you.

 

 18 By the multitude of your iniquities,

 in the unrighteousness of your trade,

 you have profaned your sanctuaries;

 therefore have I brought forth a fire

 from the middle of you;

 it has devoured you,

 and I have turned you to ashes on the earth

 in the sight of all those who see you.

 

 19 All those who know you among the peoples

 will be astonished at you:

 you have become a terror,

 and you will nevermore have any being.”

 

20The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
  21“Son of man, set your face toward Sidon and prophesy against it,
  22and say: This is what the Lord Yahweh says:

 Behold, I am against you, Sidon,

 and I will be glorified in the midst of you;

 and they will know that I am Yahweh,

 when I will have executed judgments in her,

 and will be sanctified in her.

 

 23 For I will send pestilence into her,

 and blood into her streets;

 and the wounded will fall in the middle of her,

 with the sword on her on every side,

 and they will know that I am Yahweh.

 

24And for the house of Israel there will no longer be a pricking brier, nor a hurting thorn from any of the surrounding neighbors that treated them with contempt; and they will know that I am the Lord Yahweh.
 

25This is what the Lord Yahweh says: When I have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and will show myself to be holy among them in the eyes of the nations, then will they live in their own land that I gave to my servant Jacob.
  26They will dwell securely in it, yes, they will build houses and plant vineyards, and will dwell securely when I have executed judgments on all those who do them despite all around them; and they will know that I am Yahweh their God.”
