An Oracle Concerning Tyre and Sidon
23 The ioracle concerning jTyre.
Wail, O kships of Tarshish,
for Tyre is laid waste, lwithout house or harbor!
it is revealed to them.
2 h“Son of man, say to ithe prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord God:
j“Because your heart is proud,
and kyou have said, ‘I am a god,
I sit in the seat of the gods,
in the heart of the seas,’
yet lyou are but a man, and no god,
mthough you make your heart like the heart of a god—
3 nyou are indeed wiser othan pDaniel;
no secret is hidden from you;
4 by your wisdom and your understanding
qyou have made wealth for yourself,
and have gathered gold and silver
into your treasuries;
5 by your great wisdom in your trade
you have increased your wealth,
and jyour heart has become proud in your wealth—
6 therefore thus says the Lord God:
rBecause you make your heart
like the heart of a god,
7 therefore, behold, I will bring sforeigners upon you,
the most ruthless of the nations;
and they shall draw their swords against tthe beauty of your wisdom
and defile tyour splendor.
8 uThey shall thrust you down into the pit,
vand you shall die the death of the slain
in the heart of the seas.
9 wWill you still say, ‘I am a god,’
in the presence of those who kill you,
though lyou are but a man, and no god,
in the hands of those who slay you?
10 xYou shall die the death of the uncircumcised
by the hand of foreigners;
yfor I have spoken, declares the Lord God.”
A Lament over the King of Tyre
11 Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me: 12 z“Son of man, araise a lamentation over bthe king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord God:
“You were the signet of perfection,1
cfull of wisdom and dperfect in beauty.
13 You were in eEden, the garden of God;
fevery precious stone was your covering,
gsardius, topaz, and diamond,
beryl, onyx, and jasper,
sapphire,2 femerald, and carbuncle;
and crafted in gold were your settings
and your engravings.3
iOn the day that you were created
they were prepared.
14 You were an anointed jguardian cherub.
I placed you;4 you were on kthe holy mountain of God;
in the midst of the stones of fire you walked.
15 You were blameless in your ways
lfrom the day you were created,
till unrighteousness was found in you.
16 In the abundance of myour trade
you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned;
so I cast you as a profane thing from kthe mountain of God,
and I destroyed you,5 jO guardian cherub,
from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 nYour heart was proud because of oyour beauty;
you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor.
I cast you to the ground;
I exposed you before kings,
to feast their eyes on you.
18 By the multitude of your iniquities,
in the unrighteousness of your trade
you profaned your sanctuaries;
so pI brought fire out from your midst;
it consumed you,
and I turned you to ashes on the earth
qin the sight of all who saw you.
19 All who know you among the peoples
are appalled at you;
ryou have come to a dreadful end
and shall be no more forever.”
Prophecy Against Sidon
20 The word of the Lord came to me: 21 s“Son of man, tset your face toward uSidon, and tprophesy against her 22 and say, Thus says the Lord God:
“Behold, vI am against you, O Sidon,
and wI will manifest my glory in your midst.
And xthey shall know that I am the Lord
ywhen I execute judgments in her
and zmanifest my holiness in her;
23 for I will send apestilence into her,
and blood into her streets;
and the slain shall fall in her midst,
by the sword that is against her on every side.
Then they will know that I am the Lord.
24 “And for the house of Israel bthere shall be no more a brier to prick or ca thorn to hurt them among all their neighbors dwho have treated them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord God.
9 Thus says the Lord:
k“For three transgressions of xTyre,
and for four, I will not revoke the punishment,
because they delivered up a whole people to Edom,
and did not remember the covenant of brotherhood.
10 So I will send a fire upon the wall of xTyre,
and it shall devour her strongholds.”
