Scofield Reference Notes

[1] Thou

Here (Ezek 28:12-15), as in Isa 14:12 the language goes beyond the king of Tyre to Satan, inspirer and unseen ruler of all such pomp and pride as that of Tyre. Instances of thus indirectly addressing Satan are: Gen 3:14,15 Mt 16:23. The unfallen state of Satan is here described; his fall in Isa 14:12-14. See Scofield Note: "Rev 20:10". But there is more. The vision is not of Satan in his own person, but of Satan fulfilling himself in and through an earthly king who arrogates to himself divine honours, Song that the prince of Tyrus foreshadows the Beast. Dan 7:8 Rev 19:20.Ezekiel 28:12 Parallel Commentaries

His mind had been profoundly influenced by this vision and by the thought that the Babylonian Empire, universal though it was, was finally to fall, and other kingdoms
