“Because your heart is lifted up
And you have said, ‘I am a god,

In the heart of the seas’;

And you will die the death of those who are slain
In the heart of the seas.

In the presence of your slayer,
Though you are a man and not God,
In the hands of those who wound you?

By the hand of strangers,
For I have spoken!’ declares the Lord GOD!”’”

Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 28:13 - “You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The ruby, the topaz and the diamond;

Was in you.
On the day that you were created
They were prepared.

And I placed you there.

From the day you were created
Until unrighteousness was found in you.

Therefore I have cast you as profane
From the mountain of God.

From the midst of the stones of fire.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 28:17 - “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty;
You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor.
I cast you to the ground;
I put you before kings,
That they may see you.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 28:18 - “By the multitude of your iniquities,
In the unrighteousness of your trade
You profaned your sanctuaries.
Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you;
It has consumed you,
And I have turned you to ashes on the earth
In the eyes of all who see you.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 28:19 - “All who know you among the peoples
Are appalled at you;
You have become [fn]terrified
And you will cease to be forever.”’”
