Ezekiel Chapter 28
2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:
13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
22 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee: and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
25 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob.
26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.

Matthew Henry's Ezekiel Chapter 28 Bible commentary...
The sentence against the prince or king of Tyre. (1-19) The fall of Zidon. (20-23) The restoration of Israel. (24-26)1-19 Ethbaal, or Ithobal, was the prince or king of Tyre; and being lifted up with excessive pride, he claimed Divine honours. Pride is peculiarly the sin of our fallen nature. Nor can any wisdom, except that which the Lord gives, lead to happiness in this world or in that which is to come. The haughty prince of Tyre thought he was able to protect his people by his own power, and considered himself as equal to the inhabitants of heaven. If it were possible to dwell in the garden of Eden, or even to enter heaven, no solid happiness could be enjoyed without a humble, holy, and spiritual mind. Especially all spiritual pride is of the devil. Those who indulge therein must expect to perish.
20-26. The Zidonians were borderers upon the land of Israel, and they might have learned to glorify the Lord; but, instead of that, they seduced Israel to the worship of their idols. War and pestilence are God's messengers; but he will be glorified in the restoring his people to their former safety and prosperity. God will cure them of their sins, and ease them of their troubles. This promise will at length fully come to pass in the heavenly Canaan: when all the saints shall be gathered together, every thing that offends shall be removed, all griefs and fears for ever banished. Happy, then, is the church of God, and every living member of it, though poor, afflicted, and despised; for the Lord will display his truth, power, and mercy, in the salvation and happiness of his redeemed people.

i think verse 1 to 10 talks about a descendant of satan who would be extremely powerful in terms of world power but would be alterly destroyed in the end.and verse 11 to 20 talks about the creation,appointment,sin and destruction of satan.

NOW WHY WOULD HIS BODY HAVE BEEN CREATED WITH TABRETS AND PIPES UNLESS FOR MAKING MUSIC AND WE ARE TOLD HE WAS THEE ONLY ANOINTED CHERUB SO THAT LET 'S US FURTHER KNOW THAT THE ANOOINTING WAS TO SERVE A PURPOSE IN WHICH CONTINUED READING YOU 'LL SEE THAT SATAN WAS THE MINISTER OF MUSIC HE USHERD IN THE SAINTS WITH WORSHIP PRAISE UNTO GOD NOW STAY WITH ME PEOPLE THINK ABOUT OR WONDER WHY THE MUSIC OF THIS WORLD IS FILLED JUST TOTALLY PLASTERD WITH DARKNESS,WITCHCRAFT, RITUALS BEING PERFORMED AT EVERY MAJOR EVENT AND TELEVISED THE HARPING TANGENTS OF THE ILLUMINATTI FOR THOSE WHO WILL BELIEVE...THE LYRICS ARTIST TELLING YOU THEMSELVES HOW THEY HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULD TO SATAN...

When you read Exodus 39 v1 to 13 you will understand Ezekiel 28.
Lionel's Ezekiel Chapter 28 comment on 1/28/2014, 6:36pm...
Satan was demoted from being the protective Cherub, because of his pride and because of what he did in the first world age.(deceiving one third of God's children) Satan was demoted from office, not kicked from heaven at that time like so many people believe today.
Riley's Ezekiel Chapter 28 comment about verse 14 on 10/24/2013, 7:38pm...
If i understand this right, the stones of fire are related to all the other angeles, all nine orders. his holy mountain refers, i believe is God;s throne you were blameless in your ways,God created him to be perfect above all angeles. the covering might refer to the ark of the covenant?.
Ron's Ezekiel Chapter 28 comment on 5/22/2013, 9:05am...
This is absolute proof that can be chiseled in granite that Satan will be totally destroyed forever. Yet you have those who will tell you that God in his great mercy will save every soul including Satan...which is off the chart insanity!
Dave F's Ezekiel Chapter 28 comment on 10/09/2012, 7:41am...
I feel that Matthew Henry's comment should have been split into four separate prophecies:
1) Against the PRINCE of Tyrus/Tyre - verses 1-10. (He is a mortal - verse 2 - "...yet thou art a man..") 2) Against the KING of Tyrus/Tyre - Satan - verses 11-19
3) Against Zidon - verses 20-24
4) The restoration of Israel - verses 25-26.
