28:1 Dvar YHWH (יהוה) came again unto me, saying,
28:2 Ben Adam, say unto the prince of Tzor, Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה); Because thine lev [is] lifted up, and thou hast said, I [am] a Elohim (אלהים), I sit [in] the seat of Elohim (אלהים), in the midst of the seas; yet thou [art] a man, and not Elohim (אלהים), though thou set thine lev as the lev of Elohim (אלהים):
28:3 Hinnei, thou [art] wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:
28:4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
28:5 By thy great wisdom [and] by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine lev is lifted up because of thy riches:
28:6 Therefore thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
Because thou hast set thine lev as the lev of Elohim (אלהים);
28:7 Hinnei, 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.
28:8 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.
28:9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, ANI Elohim (אלהים)? but thou [shalt be] a man, and no Elohim (אלהים), in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
28:10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken [it], saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה).
28:11 Moreover Dvar YHWH (יהוה) came unto me, saying:
28:12 Ben Adam, take up a lamentation upon the melekh Tzor, and say unto him,
Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of Elohim (אלהים); 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 created.
28:14 Thou [art] the anointed cheruv that covereth; and I have set thee [so]: thou wast upon the kodesh har (mountain) Elohim (אלהים); thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
28:15 Thou [wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
28:16 By 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 Elohim (אלהים): and I will destroy thee, O covering cheruv, from the midst of the stones of fire.
28:17 Thine lev 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 Hinnei thee.
28:18 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 Hinnei thee.
28:19 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.
28:20 Again Dvar YHWH (יהוה) came unto me, saying,
28:21 Ben Adam, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against it,
28:22 And say,Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה): Hinnei, I [am] against thee, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee: and they shall know that ANI YHWH (יהוה), when I shall have executed Shofatim in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
28:23 For 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 ANI YHWH (יהוה).
28:24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the Bayit Yisrael, nor [any] grieving thorn of all [that are] round about them, that despised them; and they shall know that
ANI Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה).
28:25 Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
"When I shall have gathered the Bayit Yisrael from the people among whom they are scattered, and will manifest My Kodesh (holiness) in them in the sight of the goyim (nations), then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to My Eved Yaakov."
28:26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed Shofatim upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that ANI YHWH (יהוה) their Elohim (אלהים).
