This passage in the Old Testament prophetic book of Ezekiel chapter 28
speaks of Satan as the Prince of Tyrus.
word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus
saith the Lord God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and
thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou
set thine heart as the heart of God:
thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:
4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches,
and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted
up because of thy riches:
thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast set thine heart
as the heart of God;
therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty
of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.
8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain
in the midst of the seas.
thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth
10 Thou shalt
die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
11 Moreover the word of the Lord
came unto me, saying,
of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious
stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald,
and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast
art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up
and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found
the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will
cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones
heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to
the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by
the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will
bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou
shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
20 Again the word of the Lord
came unto me, saying,
of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against it,
22 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee: and they shall know
that I am the Lord, when I shall have executed judgments
in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword
upon her on every side; and they shall know that I am the Lord.
24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier
unto the house of Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised them; and they shall know
that I am the Lord God.
25 Thus saith the Lord God; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and
shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant
26 And they
shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have
executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the Lord their God.
