1 Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me saying,
2 “And you, son of man, atake up a lamentation over Tyre;
“O Tyre, you have said, ‘I am perfect in beauty.’
Your builders have perfected your beauty.
They have taken a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for you.
So that it became your 1distinguishing mark;
8 “The inhabitants of Sidon and aArvad were your rowers;
9 “The elders of aGebal and her wise men were with you repairing your seams;
All the ships of the sea and their sailors were with you in order to deal in your merchandise.
11 “The sons of Arvad and your army were on your walls, all around, and the 1Gammadim were in your towers. They hung their shields on your walls all around; they perfected your beauty.
14 “Those from aBeth-togarmah gave horses and war horses and mules for your wares.
20 “aDedan traded with you in saddlecloths for riding.
23 “Haran, Canneh, aEden, the traders of Sheba, Asshur and Chilmad traded with you.
24 “They traded with you in choice garments, in clothes of 1blue and embroidered work, and in carpets of many colors and tightly wound cords, which were among your merchandise.
And you were filled and were very 2glorious
In the heart of the seas.
Into agreat waters;
The beast wind has broken you
In the heart of the seas.
Your sailors and your pilots,
Your repairers of seams, your dealers in merchandise
And all your men of war who are in you,
With all your company that is in your midst,
Will fall into the heart of the seas
On the day of your overthrow.
The pasture lands will ashake.
The asailors and all the pilots of the sea
Will come down from their ships;
They will stand on the land,
30 And they will amake their voice heard over you
And will cry bitterly.
They will bcast dust on their heads,
They will cwallow in ashes.
31 “Also they will make themselves abald for you
And bgird themselves with sackcloth;
And they will cweep for you in bitterness of soul
With bitter mourning.
32 “Moreover, in their wailing they will take up a alamentation for you
And lament over you:
‘Who is like Tyre,
Like her who is silent in the midst of the sea?
You satisfied many peoples;
With the aabundance of your wealth and your merchandise
You enriched the kings of earth.
In the depths of the waters,
Your bmerchandise and all your company
Have fallen in the midst of you.
35 ‘All the ainhabitants of the coastlands
Are appalled at you,
And their kings are horribly afraid;
They are troubled in countenance.
36 ‘The merchants among the peoples ahiss at you;
You have become 1terrified
And you bwill cease to be forever.’ ” ’ ”
