As they wail and mourn over you, they will take up a lament concerning you: “Who was ever silenced like Tyre, surrounded by the sea?”
When your merchandise went out on the seas, you satisfied many nations; with your great wealth 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.
All who live in the coastlands are appalled at you; their kings shudder with horror and their faces are distorted with fear.
The merchants among the nations scoff at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.’ ”
