b“You were the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in aEden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The , topaz, and diamond, , onyx, and , Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of byour timbrels and pipes Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
14 “You were the anointed acherub who covers; I established you; You were on bthe holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till ainiquity was found in you.
16 “By the abundance of your trading You became filled with violence within, And you sinned; Therefore I cast you as a profane thing Out of the mountain of God; And I destroyed you, aO covering cherub, From the midst of the fiery stones.
17 “Your aheart was 1lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground, I laid you before kings, That they might gaze at you.
18 “You defiled your sanctuaries By the multitude of your iniquities, By the iniquity of your trading; Therefore I brought fire from your midst; It devoured you, And I turned you to ashes upon the earth In the sight of all who saw you.
19 All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you; aYou have become a horror, And shall be no bmore forever.” ’ ”

24 “And there shall no longer be a pricking brier or aa painful thorn for the house of Israel from among all who are around them, who bdespise them. Then they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.”

4 But aI will put hooks in your jaws, And cause the fish of your rivers to stick to your scales; I will bring you up out of the midst of your rivers, And all the fish in your rivers will stick to your scales.
5 I will leave you in the wilderness, You and all the fish of your rivers; You shall fall on the 1open afield; bYou shall not be picked up or 2gathered. cI have given you as food To the beasts of the field And to the birds of the heavens.

14 “I will bring back the captives of Egypt and cause them to return to the land of Pathros, to the land of their origin, and there they shall be a alowly kingdom.
15 “It shall be the lowliest of kingdoms; it shall never again exalt itself above the nations, for I will diminish them so that they will not rule over the nations anymore.

17 And it came to pass in the twentyseventh year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

15 I will pour My fury on 1Sin, the strength of Egypt;
aI will cut off the multitude of 2No,
16 And aset a fire in Egypt; Sin shall have great pain, No shall be split open, And Noph shall be in distress daily.
17 The young men of 1Aven and Pi Beseth shall fall by the sword, And these cities shall go into captivity.

Proclamation Against Pharaoh
20 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month, on the seventh day of the month, that the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
21 “Son of man, I have abroken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and see, bit has not been bandaged for healing, nor a 1splint put on to bind it, to make it strong enough to hold a sword.
22 “Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Surely I am aagainst Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will bbreak his arms, both the strong one and the one that was broken; and I will make the sword fall out of his hand.
23 a‘I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse them throughout the countries.
24 ‘I will strengthen the arms of the king of and put My sword in his hand; but I will break Pharaoh’s arms, and he will groan before him with the groanings of a mortally wounded man.

Prayer for Wisdom and Forgiveness
To the Chief Musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.
1 I SAID, “I will guard my ways, Lest I sin with my atongue; I will restrain my mouth with a muzzle, While the wicked are before me.”
2 aI was mute with silence, I held my peace even from good; And my sorrow was stirred up.
3 My heart was hot within me; While I was 1musing, the fire burned. Then I spoke with my tongue:
4 “LORD, amake me to know my end, And what is the measure of my days, That I may know how frail I am.
5 Indeed,You have made my days as handbreadths, And my age is as nothing before You; Certainly every man at his best state is but avapor. Selah
6 Surely every man walks about like a shadow; Surely they 1busy themselves in vain; He heaps up riches, And does not know who will gather them.
