Chapter 26

Judgment on Tyre

1 Now in the eleventh year, on the first of the month, the word of the Lord came to me saying,

2 “Son of man, because aTyre has said concerning Jerusalem, ‘Aha, the bgateway of the peoples is broken; it has 1copened to me. I shall be filled, now that she is laid waste,’

3 therefore thus says the Lord 1God, ‘Behold, I am against you, O Tyre, and I will bring up amany nations against you, as the bsea brings up its waves.

4 ‘They will adestroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers; and I will scrape her debris from her and make her a bare rock.

5 ‘She will be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea, for I have spoken,’ declares the Lord God, ‘and she will become aspoil for the nations.

6 ‘Also her adaughters who are 1on the mainland will be slain by the sword, and they will know that I am the Lord.’ ”

7 For thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I will bring upon Tyre from the north Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, aking of kings, with horses, bchariots, cavalry and 1a great army.

8 “He will slay your daughters 1on the mainland with the sword; and he will make asiege walls against you, cast up a bramp against you and raise up a large shield against you.

9 “The blow of his battering rams he will direct against your walls, and with his 1axes he will break down your towers.

10 “Because of the multitude of his ahorses, the dust raised by them will cover you; your walls will bshake at the noise of cavalry and 1wagons and chariots when he centers your gates as men enter a city that is breached.

11 “With the hoofs of his ahorses he will trample all your streets. He will slay your people with the sword; and your strong pillars will bcome down to the ground.

12 “Also they will make a spoil of your riches and a prey of your amerchandise, bbreak down your walls and destroy your cpleasant houses, and 1throw your stones and your timbers and your debris dinto the water.

13 “So I will 1silence the sound of your asongs, and the sound of your bharps will be heard no more.

14 “I will make you a bare rock; you will be a place for the spreading of nets. You will be abuilt no more, for I the bLord have spoken,” declares the Lord God.

15 Thus says the Lord God to Tyre, “Shall not the acoastlands bshake at the sound of your fall when the wounded groan, when the slaughter occurs in your midst?

16 “Then all the princes of the sea will ago down from their thrones, remove their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They will bclothe themselves with 1trembling; they will sit on the ground, ctremble every moment and be appalled at you.

17 “They will take up a alamentation over you and say to you,

bHow you have perished, O inhabited one,

From the seas, O renowned city,

Which was cmighty on the sea,

She and her inhabitants,

Who 1imposed 2her terror

On all her inhabitants!

18 ‘Now the acoastlands will tremble

On the day of your fall;

Yes, the coastlands which are by the sea

Will be terrified at your bpassing.’ ”

19 For thus says the Lord God, “When I make you a desolate city, like the cities which are not inhabited, when I abring up the deep over you and the great waters cover you,

20 then I will bring you down with those who ago down to the pit, to the people of old, and I will make you dwell in the blower parts of the earth, like the ancient waste places, with those who go down to the pit, so that you will not 1be inhabited; but I will set cglory in the land of the living.

21 “I will 1bring aterrors on you and you will be no more; though you will be sought, byou will never be found again,” declares the Lord God.
