Ezekiel 26:8-18 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
8 He will ravage your settlements on the mainland with the sword; he will set up siege works1 against you, build a ramp2 up to your walls and raise his shields against you. 9 He will direct the blows of his battering rams against your walls and demolish your towers with his weapons.3 10 His horses will be so many that they will cover you with dust. Your walls will tremble at the noise of the war horses, wagons and chariots4 when he enters your gates as men enter a city whose walls have been broken through. 11 The hoofs5 of his horses will trample all your streets; he will kill your people with the sword, and your strong pillars6 will fall to the ground.7 12 They will plunder your wealth and loot your merchandise; they will break down your walls and demolish your fine houses and throw your stones, timber and rubble into the sea.8 13 I will put an end9 to your noisy songs,10 and the music of your harps11 will be heard no more.12 14 I will make you a bare rock, and you will become a place to spread fishnets. You will never be rebuilt,13 for I the LORD have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD. 15 "This is what the Sovereign LORD says to Tyre: Will not the coastlands14 tremble15 at the sound of your fall, when the wounded groan16 and the slaughter takes place in you? 16 Then all the princes of the coast will step down from their thrones and lay aside their robes and take off their embroidered17 garments. Clothed18 with terror, they will sit on the ground,19 trembling20 every moment, appalled21 at you. 17 Then they will take up a lament22 concerning you and say to you: " 'How you are destroyed, O city of renown, peopled by men of the sea! You were a power on the seas, you and your citizens; you put your terror on all who lived there.23 18 Now the coastlands tremble24 on the day of your fall; the islands in the sea are terrified at your collapse.'25
