28 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, ‘This is what the Lord God says: YourD heart is proud, and you have said, “I am a god;m I sit in the seat of gods in the heart of the sea.” Yet you are a man and not a god, though you have regarded your heart as that of a god. 3 Yes, you are wiser than Daniel;n no secret is hidden from you! 4 By your wisdom and understanding you have acquired wealth for yourself. You have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries.o 5 By your great skill in trading you have increased your wealth, but your heart has become proud because of your wealth.
Because you regard your heart as that of a god,
ruthless men from the nations.
They will draw their swords
against your magnificent wisdom
and will pierce your splendor.p
8 They will bring you down to the Pit,q
and you will die a violent death
in the heart of the sea.
in the presence of those who slayE you?
Yet you will be only a man, not a god,
in the hands of those who kill you.
10 You will die the death of the uncircumciseda
at the hands of strangers.b
For I have spoken.
This is the declaration of the Lord God.’ ”
11 The word of the Lord came to me: 12 “Son of man, lamentc for the king of Tyre and say to him, ‘This is what the Lord God says:
full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.d
13 You were in Eden,e the garden of God.
Every kind of precious stone covered you:
carnelian, topaz, and diamond,B
beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Your mountings and settings were crafted in gold;f
they were prepared on the day you were created.
14 You were an anointed guardian cherub,g
forE I had appointed you.
You were on the holy mountain of God;
you walked among the fiery stones.
you were blameless in your ways
until wickedness was found in you.
you were filled with violence, and you sinned.
So I expelled you in disgrace
from the mountain of God,
and banished you, guardian cherub,F
from among the fiery stones.
17 Your heart became proud because of your beauty;h
For the sake of your splendor
you corrupted your wisdom.
So I threw you down to the ground;G
I made you a spectacle before kings.
by the magnitude of your iniquities
in your dishonest trade.
So I made fire come from within you,
and it consumed you.i
I reduced you to ashes on the ground
in the sight of everyone watching you.
are appalled at you.
You have become an object of horror
and will never exist again.’ ”j
20 The word of the Lord came to me: 21 “Son of man, face Sidonk and prophesy against it. 22 You are to say, ‘This is what the Lord God says:
Look! I am against you, Sidon,l
and I will display my glory within you.
They will know that I am the Lord
when I execute judgments against herm
and demonstrate my holiness through her.
23 I will send a plague against hern
and bloodshed in her streets;
the slain will fall within her,
while the sword is against herH on every side.
Then they will know that I am the Lord.
25 “ ‘This is what the Lord God says: When I gather the house of Israelp from the peoples where they are scattered, I will demonstrate my holiness through them in the sight of the nations, and they will live in their own land, which I gave to my servant Jacob. 26 They will live there securely,q build houses, and plant vineyards.r They will live securely when I execute judgmentss against all their neighbors who treat them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord their God.’ ”
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
