Wail, O kships of Tarshish,
for Tyre is laid waste, lwithout house or harbor!
it is revealed to them.
the merchants of nSidon, who cross the sea, have filled you.
your revenue was the grain of Shihor,
the harvest of the Nile;
you were othe merchant of the nations.
4 Be ashamed, O nSidon, for the sea has spoken,
the stronghold of the sea, saying:
“I have neither labored nor given birth,
I have neither reared young men
nor brought up young women.”
they will be in anguish2 over the report about Tyre.
6 pCross over to Tarshish;
wail, O inhabitants of the coast!
qwhose origin is from days of old,
whose feet carried her
to settle far away?
against Tyre, the bestower of crowns,
whose merchants were princes,
whose traders were the honored of the earth?
to dishonor all the honored of the earth.
O daughter of Tarshish;
there is no restraint anymore.
11 sHe has stretched out his hand over the sea;
he has shaken the kingdoms;
the Lord has given command concerning Canaan
to destroy its strongholds.
“You will no more exult,
O oppressed virgin daughter of tSidon;
even there you will have no rest.”
14 yWail, O ships of Tarshish,
for your stronghold is laid waste.
go about the city,
O forgotten prostitute!
Make sweet melody;
sing many songs,
that you may be remembered.”
17 At the end of aseventy years, the Lord will visit Tyre, and she will return to her wages and bwill prostitute herself with all the kingdoms of the world on the face of the earth. 18 Her merchandise and her wages will be holy to the Lord. It will not be stored or hoarded, but her merchandise will supply abundant food and fine clothing for those who dwell before the Lord.
Hebrew Kittim; also verse 12
Hebrew they will have labor pains
The Hebrew words for glory and hosts sound alike
Or that has become nothing
