Prophecy Against the King of Tyre

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