Ezekiel 27:23-33 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
23 " 'Haran,1 Canneh and Eden2 and merchants of Sheba, Asshur3 and Kilmad traded with you. 24 In your marketplace they traded with you beautiful garments, blue fabric, embroidered work and multicolored rugs with cords twisted and tightly knotted. 25 " 'The ships of Tarshish4 serve as carriers for your wares. You are filled with heavy cargo in the heart of the sea.5 26 Your oarsmen take you out to the high seas. But the east wind6 will break you to pieces in the heart of the sea. 27 Your wealth,7 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 sea8 on the day of your shipwreck. 28 The shorelands will quake9 when your seamen cry out. 29 All who handle the oars will abandon their ships; the mariners and all the seamen will stand on the shore. 30 They will raise their voice and cry bitterly over you; they will sprinkle dust10 on their heads and roll11 in ashes.12 31 They will shave their heads13 because of you and will put on sackcloth. They will weep14 over you with anguish of soul and with bitter mourning.15 32 As they wail and mourn over you, they will take up a lament16 concerning you: "Who was ever silenced like Tyre, surrounded by the sea?17" 33 When your merchandise went out on the seas,18 you satisfied many nations; with your great wealth19 and your wares you enriched the kings of the earth.
