26 *And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first day of the month, that the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, abecause that Tyrus hath said against Jerusalem, bAha, she is broken that was the gates of the people: she is turned unto me: I shall be replenished, now she is laid waste: 3 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Tyrus, and will cause cmany nations to come up against thee, das the sea causeth his waves to come up. 4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and emake her like fthe top of a rock. 5 It shall be a place for gthe spreading of nets hin the midst of the sea: ifor I have spoken it, saith the Lord God: and it shall become ka spoil to the nations. 6 And lher daughters which are in the field shall be slain by the sword; mand they shall know that I am the Lord.
7 For thus saith the Lord God; mmBehold, I will bring upon Tyrus Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, na king of kings, ofrom the north, with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people. 8 He shall slay with the sword lthy daughters in the field: and phe shall make a fort against thee, and ||pqcast a mount against thee, and rlift up the buckler against thee. 9 And he shall set engines of war against thy walls, and with his axes he shall break down thy towers. 10 By reason of the abundance of his horses their dust shall cover thee: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the horsemen, and of sthe wheels, and of the chariots, when he shall enter into thy gates, †as men enter into a city wherein is made a breach. 11 With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong garrisons shall go down to the ground. 12 And they shall ttmake a spoil of thy riches, and ttmake a prey of thy umerchandise: and they shall break down thy walls, and destroy †thy pleasant houses: and they shall lay thy stones and thy timber and uuthy dust in the midst of the water. 13 And vI will cause the noise of thy songs to cease; and the sound of wthy harps shall be no more heard. 14 And eI will make thee like the top of a rock: gthou shalt be a place to spread nets upon; thou shalt be built no more: for iI the Lord have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
15 Thus saith the Lord God to Tyrus; Shall not the isles xshake at the sound of thy fall, when ythe wounded cry, when the slaughter is made in the midst of thee? 16 Then all zthe princes of the sea ashall come down from their thrones, and alay away their robes, and put off their bbroidered garments: they shall clothe themselves with †trembling; abbthey shall sit upon the ground, and cshall tremble dat every moment, and ebe astonished at thee. 17 And fthey shall take up a lamentation for thee, and say to thee, How art thou destroyed, that wast inhabited †of seafaring men, the renowned city, gwhich wast strong in the sea, she and her inhabitants, hwhich cause their terror to be on all that haunt it! 18 Now ishall the isles tremble jin the day of thy fall; yea, the isles that are in the sea shall be troubled at thy departure. 19 For thus saith the Lord God; When I shall make thee a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited; jjwhen I shall bring up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee; 20 When kI shall bring thee down with them that descend into the pit, kkwith the people of old time, and shall set thee kin the low parts of the earth, in places ldesolate of old, kwith them that go down to the pit, that thou be not inhabited; and I shall set glory min the land of the living; 21 nI will make thee †a terror, nand thou shalt be no more: othough thou be sought for, yet shalt thou opnever be found again, saith the Lord God.
