The aoracle concerning 1Tyre. Wail, O 2ships of 3Tarshish, For Tyre is destroyed, withouthouse or b4harbor ; It is reported to them from the land of c5Cyprus.
26Be silent, you inhabitants of the coastland, You merchants of Sidon ; dYour messengerscrossed the sea3
And were on manywaters. 7The grain of the e8Nile, the harvest of the River was her revenue ; And she was the 9market of nations.
Be ashamed, O 10Sidon ; For the seaspeaks, the stronghold of the sea, saying, "I have neithertravailednorgivenbirth, I have neitherbrought up youngmen nor rearedvirgins."
5When the report reaches Egypt, They will be in 11anguish at the report of Tyre.
6Passover to 12Tarshish ; Wail, O inhabitants of the coastland.
Is this your 13jubilant city, Whose origin is from antiquity, Whose feet used to carry her to fcolonizedistant places?
8Who has plannedthisagainstTyre, 14the bestower of crowns, Whosemerchants were princes, whosetraders were the honored of the earth ?
915The LORD of hosts has planned it, to 16defile the pride of allbeauty, To despiseall the 17honored of the earth.
10gOverflow your land like the Nile, O daughter of Tarshish, There is nomorehrestraint.
He has 18stretched His hand out 19over the sea, He has 20made the kingdomstremble ; The LORD has given a commandconcerningCanaan to 21demolish its strongholds.
He has said, "22You shall exultnomore , O crushedvirgindaughter of Sidon. Arise, passover to i23Cyprus ; eventhere you will findnorest."
13Behold, the land of the Chaldeans-this is the people which was not; 24Assyriaappointed it for 25desertcreatures -they erected their siegetowers, they stripped its palaces, 26they made it a ruin.
14Wail, O 27ships of Tarshish, For your stronghold is destroyed.
Now in that dayTyre will be forgotten for 28seventyyears like the days of oneking. At the end of seventyyears it will happen to Tyre as in the song of the harlot :
16Take your harp, walkabout the city, O forgottenharlot ; Pluck the stringsskillfully, sing manysongs, That you may be remembered.
It will come about at 29the end of seventyyears that the LORD will visitTyre. Then she will goback to her harlot'swages and will 30play the harlot with all the kingdomsjon the face of the earth.
Her 31gain and her harlot'swages will be 32setapart to the LORD ; it will not be stored up or hoarded, but her gain will becomesufficientfood and choiceattire for those who dwell in the presence of the LORD.
