Ezekiel 24-28 (The Daily Walk Bible).

The lesson for the nations surrounding Judah? Be careful what you wish for! Babylon and Persia didn’t just stop at Judah!

It reminds me of Luke 6:37-38. “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

The surrounding nations are getting their judgment measured back to them.

From Halley’s Bible Handbook

There are some that think Ezekiel 28 is describing Satan, at least in part. However, there are many that have a different view. For example: “The lament God inspires Ezekiel to sing over the king of Tyre contains a series of metaphorical references to the story of the Garden of Eden and to the Mountain of God. The king is compared to a guardian angel at the mountain and, in a way, to Adam himself in the garden. The comparisons are not exact, but imagistic—overtones and general allusions rather than straight one-for-one correspondences to the garden story. The allusions to the mountain of God (e.g., vv. 14, 16) reflect a poetic theme in the Old Testament in which the mountain represents God’s abode” (Tom Constable’s Expository Notes on the Bible).
