Ezekiel 28:12-14 The Voice (VOICE)

Eternal One: 12 Son of man, sing a lament for the prince of Tyre. Tell him this is what I, the Eternal Lord, have to say:

    You were a paradigm of perfection, human life at its best.
        You had everything a leader needs: immense wisdom and perfect beauty.
13     You lived in Eden, God’s garden.
        You were clothed in magnificent splendor, covered in jewels:
    Sardius, topaz, diamond, beryl, onyx, jasper,
        lapis lazuli, turquoise, and emerald.
    All the mountings were made of gold,[a]
        prepared for you on the day you were created.
14     I anointed you the guardian[b] of the garden and stationed you at your post to protect it.
        You were on the divine mountain, the holy mount of God.
        There you walked among the fiery stones.
