       ” ‘In the pride of your heart
you say, “I am a god;

But you are a man and not a god,
though you think you are as wise as a god.

    3 Are you wiser than Daniel [a] ?
Is no secret hidden from you?

    4 By your wisdom and understanding
you have gained wealth for yourself
and amassed gold and silver
in your treasuries.

    5 By your great skill in trading
you have increased your wealth,
and because of your wealth
your heart has grown proud.

13 You were in Eden,
the garden of God;
every precious stone adorned you:
ruby, topaz and emerald,
chrysolite, onyx and jasper,
sapphire, [b] turquoise and beryl. [c]
Your settings and mountings [d] were made of gold;
on the day you were created they were prepared.

    14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub,
for so I ordained you.
You were on the holy mount of God;
you walked among the fiery stones.

    15 You were blameless in your ways
from the day you were created
till wickedness was found in you.

    16 Through your widespread trade
you were filled with violence,
and you sinned.
So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God,
and I expelled you, O guardian cherub,
from among the fiery stones.

    17 Your heart became proud
on account of your beauty,
and you corrupted your wisdom
because of your splendor.
So I threw you to the earth;
I made a spectacle of you before kings.
