Your oarsmen take you out to the high seas. But the east wind1 will break you to pieces in the heart of the sea.
Your wealth,2 merchandise and wares, your mariners, seamen and shipwrights, your merchants and all your soldiers, and everyone else on board will sink into the heart of the sea3 on the day of your shipwreck.
The shorelands will quake4 when your seamen cry out.
All who handle the oars will abandon their ships; the mariners and all the seamen will stand on the shore.
They will raise their voice and cry bitterly over you; they will sprinkle dust5 on their heads and roll6 in ashes.731
They will shave their heads8 because of you and will put on sackcloth. They will weep9 over you with anguish of soul and with bitter mourning.1032
As they wail and mourn over you, they will take up a lament11 concerning you: "Who was ever silenced like Tyre, surrounded by the sea?12"
When your merchandise went out on the seas,13 you satisfied many nations; with your great wealth14 and your wares you enriched the kings of the earth.
Now you are shattered by the sea in the depths of the waters; your wares and all your company have gone down with you.1535
All who live in the coastlands16 are appalled17 at you; their kings shudder with horror and their faces are distorted with fear.1836
The merchants among the nations hiss at you;19 you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.20' "
