“ ‘Damascus did business with you because of your many products and great wealth of goods. They offered wine from Helbon, wool from Zahar
and casks of wine from Izal in exchange for your wares: wrought iron, cassia and calamus.
“ ‘Dedan traded in saddle blankets with you.
“ ‘Arabia and all the princes of Kedar were your customers; they did business with you in lambs, rams and goats.
“ ‘The merchants of Sheba and Raamah traded with you; for your merchandise they exchanged the finest of all kinds of spices and precious stones, and gold.
“ ‘Harran, Kanneh and Eden and merchants of Sheba, Ashur and Kilmad traded with you.
In your marketplace they traded with you beautiful garments, blue fabric, embroidered work and multicolored rugs with cords twisted and tightly knotted.
“ ‘The ships of Tarshish serve as carriers for your wares. You are filled with heavy cargo as you sail the sea.
Your oarsmen take you out to the high seas. But the east wind will break you to pieces far out at sea.
Your wealth, merchandise and wares, your mariners, sailors and shipwrights, your merchants and all your soldiers, and everyone else on board will sink into the heart of the sea on the day of your shipwreck.
The shorelands will quake when your sailors cry out.
