Bible: Ezekiel 28:11-19
28:11 The word of the
“‘You were the sealer 2 of perfection,
full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
28:13 You were in Eden, the garden of God. 3
Every precious stone was your covering,
the ruby, topaz, and emerald,
the chrysolite, onyx, and jasper,
the sapphire, turquoise, and beryl; 4
your settings and mounts were made of gold.
On the day you were created they were prepared.
you were on the holy mountain of God;
you walked about amidst fiery stones.
28:15 You were blameless in your behavior 8 from the day you were created,
until sin was discovered in you.
28:16 In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence, 9 and you sinned;
so I defiled you and banished you 10 from the mountain of God –
the guardian cherub expelled you 11 from the midst of the stones of fire.
28:17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty;
you corrupted your wisdom on account of your splendor.
I threw you down to the ground;
I placed you before kings, that they might see you.
28:18 By the multitude of your iniquities, through the sinfulness of your trade,
you desecrated your sanctuaries.
So I drew fire out from within you;
it consumed you,
and I turned you to ashes on the earth
before the eyes of all who saw you.
28:19 All who know you among the peoples are shocked at you;
you have become terrified and will be no more.’”
