1 The word of the LORD came to me again, saying,
"Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, 'Thus says the Lord GOD:
"Because your heart is a lifted 1 up,
And b you say, 'I am a god,
I sit in the seat of gods,
c In the midst of the seas,'
d Yet you are a man, and not a god,
Though you set your heart as the heart of a god 3 (Behold, e you are wiser than Daniel!
There is no secret that can be hidden from you! 4 With your wisdom and your understanding
You have gained f riches for yourself,
And gathered gold and silver into your treasuries; 5 g By your great wisdom in trade you have increased your riches,
And your heart is lifted up because of your riches)," 6 'Therefore thus says the Lord GOD:
"Because you have set your heart as the heart of a god, 7 Behold, therefore, I will bring h strangers against you,
i The most terrible of the nations;
And they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom,
And defile your splendor. 8 They shall throw you down into the j Pit,
And you shall die the death of the slain
In the midst of the seas. 9 "Will you still k say before him who slays you,
'I am a god'?
But you shall be a man, and not a god,
In the hand of him who slays you. 10 You shall die the death of l the uncircumcised
By the hand of aliens;
For I have spoken," says the Lord GOD.' "
