New American Standard Bible
“Because your heart is lifted up
And you have said, ‘(A)I am a god,
I sit in the seat of [c]gods
In the heart of the seas’;
Yet you are a (B)man and not God,
Although you make your heart like the heart of God—
3 Behold, you are wiser than (C)Daniel;
There is no secret that is a match for you.
4 “By your wisdom and understanding
You have acquired (D)riches for yourself
And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries.
5 “By your great wisdom, by your (E)trade
You have increased your riches
And your (F)heart is lifted up because of your riches—
6 Therefore thus says the Lord God,
‘Because you have (G)made your heart
Like the heart of God,
7 Therefore, behold, I will bring (H)strangers upon you,
The (I)most ruthless of the nations.
And they will draw their swords
Against the beauty of your wisdom
And defile your splendor.
8 ‘They will bring you down to the pit,
And you will die the (J)death of those who are slain
In the heart of the seas.
