23*The aburden of bTyre.

cHowl, ye ships of Tarshish;

For it is laid waste, dso that there is no house, dno entering in:

From the land of eChittim it is revealed to them.

Be fstill, gye inhabitants of the isle;

Thou whom the merchants of hZidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.

And by great waters the seed of iSihor,

The harvest of the river, is her revenue;

And kshe is a mart of nations.

Be thou ashamed, O hZidon: for the sea hath spoken,

Even the strength of the sea, saying,

I travail not, nor bring forth children,

Neither do I lnourish up young men, nor lbring up virgins.

As at the report concerning Egypt,

So shall they be sorely pained at the report of Tyre.

Pass ye over to cTarshish; howl, gye inhabitants of the isle.

Is this your mjoyous city, whose antiquity is of nancient days?

Her own feet shall carry her afar off to sojourn.

Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city,

Whose merchants are princes, whose nntraffickers are the honourable of the earth?

The Lord of hosts hath purposed it,

To stain the pride of all oglory,

And to pbring into contempt all the honourable of the earth.

10  Pass through thy land as qa river, O daughter of cTarshish:

There is no more rstrength.

11  He stretched out his hand over the sea, she shook the kingdoms:

The Lord hath given a commandment ||against the merchant city, to destroy the ||strong holds thereof.

12  And he said, Thou shalt no more rejoice,

O thou oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon:

Arise, pass over to eChittim;

There also shalt thou have no rest.

13  Behold the land of tthe Chaldeans;

This people was not,

Till the Assyrian founded it for uthem that dwell in the wilderness:

They set up the vtowers thereof,

They raised up the palaces thereof;

And he brought it wto ruin.

14  cHowl, ye ships of Tarshish: for your strength is laid waste.

15  And it shall come to pass in that day,

That Tyre shall be forgotten xseventy years,

According to the days of xxone king:

yAfter the end of seventy years yshall Tyre sing as an harlot.

16  zTake an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten;

aMake sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered.

17  And it shall come to pass yafter the end of seventy years,

That the Lord will aavisit Tyre,

And yshe shall turn to her hire,

And bshall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world

Upon the face of the earth.

18  And her merchandise and her hire shall be choliness to the Lord:

It shall not be treasured nor laid up;

For dher merchandise shall be for them that dwell before the Lord,

To eat esufficiently, and for durable clothing.
