The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,2
Now, thou son of man, take up3 a lamentation for Tyrus;
And say1 unto Tyrus, O thou that art situate6 at the entry of the sea, [which art] a merchant6 of the people for many isles, Thus saith1 the Lord GOD; O Tyrus, thou hast said,1 I [am] of perfect beauty.
Thy borders [are] in the midst of the seas, thy builders6 have perfected1 thy beauty.
They have made1 all thy [ship] boards of fir trees of Senir: they have taken1 cedars from Lebanon to make2 masts for thee.
[Of] the oaks of Bashan have they made1 thine oars; the company of the Ashurites 838 have made1 thy benches [of] ivory, [brought] out of the isles of Chittim.
Fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was that which thou spreadest forth to be thy sail; blue and purple from the isles of Elishah was that which covered thee.
The inhabitants6 of Zidon and Arvad were thy mariners:5 thy wise [men], O Tyrus, [that] were in thee, were thy pilots.
The ancients of Gebal and the wise [men] thereof were in thee thy calkers: 2388 56 all the ships of the sea with their mariners were in thee to occupy2 thy merchandise.
They of Persia and of Lud and of Phut were in thine army, thy men of war: they hanged14 the shield and helmet in thee; they set forth1 thy comeliness.
The men of Arvad with thine army [were] upon thy walls round about, and the Gammadims were in thy towers: they hanged14 their shields upon thy walls round about; they have made thy beauty perfect.1
Tarshish [was] thy merchant6 by reason of the multitude of all [kind of] riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded1 in thy fairs.
Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they [were] thy merchants:6 they traded1 the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.
They of the house of Togarmah traded1 in thy fairs with horses and horsemen and mules.
The men of Dedan [were] thy merchants;6 many isles [were] the merchandise of thine hand: they brought52 thee [for] a present horns of ivory and ebony.
Syria [was] thy merchant6 by reason of the multitude of the wares of thy making: they occupied1 in thy fairs with emeralds, purple, and broidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and agate.
Judah, and the land of Israel, they [were] thy merchants:6 they traded1 in thy market wheat of Minnith, and Pannag, and honey, and oil, and balm.
Damascus [was] thy merchant6 in the multitude of the wares of thy making, for the multitude of all riches; in the wine of Helbon, and white wool.
Dan 1835 also and Javan going to and fro30 occupied1 in thy fairs: bright iron, cassia, and calamus, were in thy market.
Dedan [was] thy merchant6 in precious clothes for chariots.
Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they occupied6 with thee in lambs, and rams, and goats: in these [were they] thy merchants.6
The merchants6 of Sheba and Raamah, they [were] thy merchants:6 they occupied1 in thy fairs with chief of all spices, and with all precious stones, and gold.
Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants6 of Sheba, Asshur, [and] Chilmad, [were] thy merchants.6
These [were] thy merchants6 in all sorts [of things], in blue clothes, and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel, bound7 with cords, and made of cedar, among thy merchandise.
The ships of Tarshish did sing6 of thee in thy market: and thou wast replenished,11 and made very glorious4 in the midst of the seas.
Thy rowers5 have brought52 thee into great waters: the east wind hath broken1 thee in the midst of the seas.
Thy riches, and thy fairs, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and thy pilots, thy calkers, 2388 56 and the occupiers6 of thy merchandise, and all thy men of war, that [are] in thee, and in all thy company which [is] in the midst of thee, shall fall4 into the midst of the seas in the day of thy ruin.
The suburbs shall shake4 at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.
And all that handle6 the oar, the mariners, [and] all the pilots of the sea, shall come down1 from their ships, they shall stand4 upon the land;
And shall cause their voice to be heard52 against thee, and shall cry4 bitterly, and shall cast up55 dust upon their heads, they shall wallow101 themselves in the ashes:
And they shall make themselves utterly bald52 for thee, and gird1 them with sackcloth, and they shall weep1 for thee with bitterness of heart [and] bitter wailing.
And in their wailing they shall take up1 a lamentation for thee, and lament31 over thee, [saying], What [city is] like Tyrus, like the destroyed in the midst of the sea?
When thy wares went forth2 out of the seas, thou filledst52 many people; thou didst enrich52 the kings of the earth with the multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise.
In the time [when] thou shalt be broken12 by the seas in the depths of the waters thy merchandise and all thy company in the midst of thee shall fall.1
All the inhabitants6 of the isles shall be astonished1 at thee, and their kings shall be sore afraid,1 they shall be troubled1 in [their] countenance.
The merchants6 among the people shall hiss1 at thee; thou shalt be a terror, and never [shalt be] any more. 5769
