Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord GOD; Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet you are a man, and not God, though you set your heart as the heart of God:
And yet exalt you yourself against my people, that you will not let them go?
He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who has hardened himself against him, and has prospered?
Have you an arm like God? or can you thunder with a voice like him?
1 Corinthians 10:22
Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
2 Thessalonians 2:4
Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withers the grass, and its flower falls, and the beauty of the appearance of it perishes: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.
