In the eleventh year, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me:
Mortal, because Tyre said concerning Jerusalem, "Aha, broken is the gateway of the peoples; it has swung open to me; I shall be replenished, now that it is wasted,"
therefore, thus says the Lord God: See, I am against you, O Tyre! I will hurl many nations against you, as the sea hurls its waves.
They shall destroy the walls of Tyre and break down its towers. I will scrape its soil from it and make it a bare rock.
It shall become, in the midst of the sea, a place for spreading nets. I have spoken, says the Lord God. It shall become plunder for the nations,
and its daughter-towns in the country shall be killed by the sword. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.
