Ezekiel 28:12-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

12 Son of man, raise a lament over the king of Tyre, and say to him: Thus says the Lord God:

[a] You were a seal of perfection,
    full of wisdom, perfect in beauty.
13 In Eden, the garden of God, you lived;
    precious stones of every kind were your covering:
Carnelian, topaz, and beryl,
    chrysolite, onyx, and jasper,
    sapphire, garnet, and emerald.
Their mounts and settings
    were wrought in gold,
    fashioned for you the day you were created.
14 With a cherub I placed you;
    I put you on the holy mountain of God,[b]
    where you walked among fiery stones.


  1. 28:12–19 Ezekiel describes the leader of Tyre in language that recalls the imagery of Gn 2–3.
  2. 28:14 The holy mountain of God: the residence of gods in Israelite and non-Israelite myth; cf. Is 14:13. Fiery stones: associated with the divine presence; cf. Ez 1:13; Ps 18:13.
