Ezekiel 28:3-5

Context

28:3 Look, you are wiser than Daniel; 1 

no secret is hidden from you. 2 

28:4 By your wisdom and understanding you have gained wealth for yourself;

you have amassed gold and silver in your treasuries.

28:5 By your great skill 3  in trade you have increased your wealth,

and your heart is proud because of your wealth.

1 sn Or perhaps “Danel” (so TEV), referring to a ruler known from Canaanite legend. See the note on “Daniel” in 14:14. A reference to Danel (preserved in legend at Ugarit, near the northern end of the Phoenician coast) makes more sense here when addressing Tyre than in 14:14.

2 sn The tone here is sarcastic, reflecting the ruler’s view of himself.

3 tn Or “wisdom.”
