A Message for Tyre’s King

28Then this message came to me from the Lord:H1697H3068H559 2“Son of man, give the prince of Tyre this message from the Sovereign Lord. “In your great pride you claim, ‘I am a god! I sit on a divine throne in the heart of the sea.’ But you are only a man and not a god, though you boast that you are a god.H1121H120H559H5057H6865H559H136H3069H3820H1361H559H410H3427H4186H430H3820H3220H120H410H5414H3820H3820H430 3You regard yourself as wiser than Daniel and think no secret is hidden from you.H2450H1840H5640H6004 4With your wisdom and understanding you have amassed great wealth—gold and silver for your treasuries.H2451H8394H6213H2428H6213H2091H3701H214 5Yes, your wisdom has made you very rich, and your riches have made you very proud.H7230H2451H7404H7235H2428H3824H1361H2428 6“Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says. Because you think you are as wise as a god,H559H136H3069H5414H3820H3824H430 7I will now bring against you a foreign army, the terror of the nations. They will draw their swords against your marvelous wisdom and defile your splendor!H935H2114H6184H1471H7324H2719H3308H2451H2490H3314 8They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die in the heart of the sea, pierced with many wounds.H3381H7845H4191H4463H2491H3820H3220 9Will you then boast, ‘I am a god!’ to those who kill you? To them you will be no god but merely a man!H559H559H6440H2026H430H120H410H3027H2490 10You will die like an outcast at the hands of foreigners. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!”H4191H4194H6189H3027H2114H1696H5002H136H3069 11Then this further message came to me from the Lord:H1697H3068H559 12“Son of man, sing this funeral song for the king of Tyre. Give him this message from the Sovereign Lord. “You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and exquisite in beauty.H1121H120H5375H7015H4428H6865H559H559H136H3069H2856H8508H4392H2451H3632H3308 13You were in Eden, the garden of God. Your clothing was adorned with every precious stone—red carnelian, pale-green peridot, white moonstone, blue-green beryl, onyx, green jasper, blue lapis lazuli, turquoise, and emerald—all beautifully crafted for you and set in the finest gold. They were given to you on the day you were created.H5731H1588H430H3368H68H4540H124H6357H3095H8658H7718H3471H5601H5306H1304H2091H4399H8596H5345H3559H3117H1254 14I ordained and anointed you as the mighty angelic guardian. You had access to the holy mountain of God and walked among the stones of fire.H4473H3742H5526H5414H6944H2022H430H1980H8432H68H784 15“You were blameless in all you did from the day you were created until the day evil was found in you.H8549H1870H3117H1254H5766H4672 16Your rich commerce led you to violence, and you sinned. So I banished you in disgrace from the mountain of God. I expelled you, O mighty guardian, from your place among the stones of fire.H7230H7404H4390H8432H2555H2398H2490H2022H430H6H5526H3742H8432H68H784 17Your heart was filled with pride because of all your beauty. Your wisdom was corrupted by your love of splendor. So I threw you to the ground and exposed you to the curious gaze of kings.H3820H1361H3308H7843H2451H5921H3314H7993H776H5414H6440H4428H7200 18You defiled your sanctuaries with your many sins and your dishonest trade. So I brought fire out from within you, and it consumed you. I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching.H2490H4720H7230H5771H5766H7404H3318H784H8432H398H5414H665H776H5869H7200 19All who knew you are appalled at your fate. You have come to a terrible end, and you will exist no more.”H3045H5971H8074H1091H369H5704H5769

A Message for Sidon

20Then another message came to me from the Lord:H1697H3068H559 21“Son of man, turn and face the city of Sidon and prophesy against it.H1121H120H7760H6440H6721H5012 22Give the people of Sidon this message from the Sovereign Lord. “I am your enemy, O Sidon, and I will reveal my glory by what I do to you. When I bring judgment against you and reveal my holiness among you, everyone watching will know that I am the Lord.H559H559H136H3069H6721H3513H8432H3045H3068H6213H8201H6942 23I will send a plague against you, and blood will be spilled in your streets. The attack will come from every direction, and your people will lie slaughtered within your walls. Then everyone will know that I am the Lord.H7971H1698H1818H2351H2491H5307H8432H2719H5439H3045H3068 24No longer will Israel’s scornful neighbors prick and tear at her like briers and thorns. For then they will know that I am the Sovereign Lord.H3992H5544H1004H3478H3510H6975H5439H7590H3045H136H3069

Restoration for Israel

25“This is what the Sovereign Lord says: The people of Israel will again live in their own land, the land I gave my servant Jacob. For I will gather them from the distant lands where I have scattered them. I will reveal to the nations of the world my holiness among my people.H559H136H3069H6908H1004H3478H5971H6327H6942H5869H1471H3427H127H5414H5650H3290 26They will live safely in Israel and build homes and plant vineyards. And when I punish the neighboring nations that treated them with contempt, they will know that I am the Lord their God.”H3427H983H1129H1004H5193H3754H3427H983H6213H8201H7590H5439H3045H3068H430
