Ezekiel 28:2-5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

“Son of man, say to the [a]leader of Tyre, ‘The Lord [b]God says this:

“Because your heart is haughty
And you have said, ‘I am a god,
I sit in the seat of [c]gods
In the heart of the seas’;
Yet you are a mortal and not God,
Although you make your heart like the heart of God—
Behold, you are wiser than Daniel;
There is no secret that is a match for you!
By your wisdom and understanding
You have acquired riches for yourself
And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries.
By your great wisdom, by your trade
You have increased your riches,
And your heart is haughty because of your riches—

“Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“‘In the pride of your heart
    you say, “I am a god;
I sit on the throne of a god
    in the heart of the seas.”
But you are a mere mortal and not a god,
    though you think you are as wise as a god.
Are you wiser than Daniel[a]?
    Is no secret hidden from you?
By your wisdom and understanding
    you have gained wealth for yourself
and amassed gold and silver
    in your treasuries.
By your great skill in trading
    you have increased your wealth,
and because of your wealth
    your heart has grown proud.
