Thoughts on Ezekiel 28

  1. When was this book written?  This is the second time he’s mentioned Daniel as an established baseline for wisdom  and piety.  I had it in mind that Ezekiel was either contemporaneous with Daniel or with Jeremiah.  But writing at the same time as Daniel doesn’t seem to work with saying things like “Behold, you are wiser than Daniel!”
  2. I know vs. 11-29 are generally taken to be talking bout the devil.  All well and good, but the text specifically says that it’s a lamentation against Tyre.  So I want to know what all this “beauty of perfection,” “covering cherub” stuff has to do with Tyre.  The stuff about the multitude of trading makes sense, but the rest doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Tyre at all.
