A Prophecy About Tyre

1 An oracle concerning Tyre:1 Wail,2 O ships3 of Tarshish!4 For Tyre is destroyed5 and left without house or harbor. From the land of Cyprusa word has come to them. 2 Be silent,6 you people of the island and you merchants7 of Sidon,8 whom the seafarers have enriched. 3 On the great waters came the grain of the Shihor;9 the harvest of the Nileb10 was the revenue of Tyre,11 and she became the marketplace of the nations. 4 Be ashamed, O Sidon,12 and you, O fortress of the sea, for the sea has spoken: "I have neither been in labor nor given birth;13 I have neither reared sons nor brought up daughters. 5 When word comes to Egypt, they will be in anguish14 at the report from Tyre.15 6 Cross over to Tarshish;16 wail, you people of the island. 7 Is this your city of revelry,17 the old, old city, whose feet have taken her to settle in far-off lands? 8 Who planned this against Tyre, the bestower of crowns, whose merchants18 are princes, whose traders19 are renowned in the earth? 9 The LORD Almighty planned20 it, to bring low21 the pride of all glory and to humble22 all who are renowned23 on the earth.
