Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it was done in the eleventh year, in the first day of the month (on the first day of the month), the word of the Lord was made to me, and he said, 1 In the eleventh year, on the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came to me:
2 Thou, son of man, for that that Tyre said of Jerusalem, Well! the gates of peoples be broken, it is turned to me; I shall be filled, it is forsaken; (Thou, son of man, because Tyre hath said of Jerusalem, Well! the gateway to the nations is broken, and it is open to me; I shall be filled, it is deserted;) 2 "Son of man, because Tyre has said of Jerusalem, 'Aha! The gate to the nations is broken, and its doors have swung open to me; now that she lies in ruins I will prosper,'
3 therefore the Lord God saith these things, Lo! Tyre, I on thee; and I shall make many folks to ascend to thee, as the sea flowing ascendeth. (and so the Lord God saith these things, Lo! Tyre, I am against thee; and I shall make many nations to ascend against thee, like the flowing sea ascendeth.) 3 therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, O Tyre, and I will bring many nations against you, like the sea casting up its waves.
4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyre, and they shall destroy the towers thereof; and I shall raze the dust thereof from it, and I shall give it into a most clear stone. (And they shall destroy the walls of Tyre, and they shall destroy its towers; and I shall raze, or shall sweep away, even the dust from it, and I shall make it into a very clean, or a very bare, rock.) 4 They will destroy the walls of Tyre and pull down her towers; I will scrape away her rubble and make her a bare rock.
5 Drying of nets [it] shall be in the midst of the sea, for I spake, saith the Lord God. And Tyre shall be into ravishing to heathen men. (It shall be for the drying of nets in the midst of the sea, for I have spoken, saith the Lord God. And Tyre shall be for robbing, or for spoils, for the heathen.) 5 Out in the sea she will become a place to spread fishnets, for I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD. She will become plunder for the nations,
6 And the daughters thereof that be in the field, shall be slain by sword; and they shall know, that I am the Lord. 6 and her settlements on the mainland will be ravaged by the sword. Then they will know that I am the LORD.
7 For why the Lord God saith these things, Lo! I shall bring to Tyre Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, from the north, the king of kings, with horses, and chariots, and knights, and with a company, and great people. (For the Lord God saith these things, Lo! I shall bring against Tyre Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, the king of kings, from the north, with horses, and chariots, and horsemen, and with a great company of people.) 7 "For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: From the north I am going to bring against Tyre Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, king of kings, with horses and chariots, with horsemen and a great army.
8 He shall slay by sword thy daughters that be in the field, and he shall (en)compass thee with strongholds, and he shall bear together [the heap of] earth in compass. And he shall raise a shield against thee, (He shall kill by the sword thy daughters who be in the fields, and he shall surround thee with strongholds, and he shall bear together heaps of earth all around thee. And he shall raise up a shield against thee,) 8 He will ravage your settlements on the mainland with the sword; he will set up siege works against you, build a ramp up to your walls and raise his shields against you.
9 and he shall temper engines like vineries, and engines that be called wethers against thy walls; and he shall destroy thy towers by his arms. (and he shall use battering-rams against thy walls; and he shall destroy thy towers with his weapons.) 9 He will direct the blows of his battering rams against your walls and demolish your towers with his weapons.
10 By (the) flowing (by) of his horses, the dust of those shall cover thee; thy walls shall be moved of the sound of knights, and of wheels, and of chariots (thy walls shall be shaken at the sound of the horsemen, and the wheels, and the chariots); when he shall enter by the gates, as by enterings of a city destroyed, 10 His horses will be so many that they will cover you with dust. Your walls will tremble at the noise of the war horses, wagons and chariots when he enters your gates as men enter a city whose walls have been broken through.
11 with the claws of his horses he shall defoul all thy streets. He shall slay by sword thy people, and thy noble images shall fall down into earth. (with the hoofs of his horses he shall defile all thy streets. He shall kill thy people by the sword, and thy mighty pillars shall fall down to the ground.) 11 The hoofs of his horses will trample all your streets; he will kill your people with the sword, and your strong pillars will fall to the ground.
12 They shall waste thy riches, they shall ravish thy merchandise; and they shall destroy thy walls, and they shall destroy thine houses full clear, and thy stones, and thy trees, and they shall put thy dust in the midst of waters. (They shall destroy thy riches, and they shall rob thy merchandise; they shall destroy thy walls, and they shall destroy thy glorious houses, and thy stones, and thy timber, and they shall put thy dust into the midst of thy waters.) 12 They will plunder your wealth and loot your merchandise; they will break down your walls and demolish your fine houses and throw your stones, timber and rubble into the sea.
13 And I shall make to rest the multitude of thy singers, and the sound of thine harps shall no more be heard; 13 I will put an end to your noisy songs, and the music of your harps will be heard no more.
14 and I shall give thee into a most clear stone. Thou shalt be (a place for the) drying of nets, and thou shalt no more be builded, for I the Lord spake, saith the Lord God. (and I shall make thee into a very clean, or a very bare, rock. Thou shalt be a place for the drying of nets, and thou shalt never be rebuilt, for I the Lord spoke, saith the Lord God.) 14 I will make you a bare rock, and you will become a place to spread fishnets. You will never be rebuilt, for I the LORD have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD.
15 The Lord God saith these things of Tyre, Whether isles shall not be moved of the sound of thy fall, and of the wailing of thy slain men, when they be slain in the midst of thee? (The Lord God saith these things to Tyre, Shall not the islands be moved at the sound of thy fall, and at the wailing of thy slain, when they be killed in thy midst?) 15 "This is what the Sovereign LORD says to Tyre: Will not the coastlands tremble at the sound of your fall, when the wounded groan and the slaughter takes place in you?
16 And all the princes of the sea shall go down off their seats, and they shall do away their mantles, either their spoils of slain enemies, and they shall cast away their diverse clothes, and shall be clothed with wondering. They shall sit in the earth, and shall be astonied, and shall wonder on thy sudden fall. (And all the kings of the sea shall go down off their thrones, and they shall do away their mantles, or the spoils of their slain enemies, and they shall throw away their diverse clothes, and they shall be clothed with wondering. They shall sit on the ground, and shall be astonished, and shall wonder at thy sudden fall.) 16 Then all the princes of the coast will step down from their thrones and lay aside their robes and take off their embroidered garments. Clothed with terror, they will sit on the ground, trembling every moment, appalled at you.
17 And they shall take wailing on thee, and shall say to thee, How perishedest thou, noble city, that dwellest in the sea, that were strong in the sea, with thy dwellers, which dwellers all men dreaded? (And they shall take up a wailing for thee, and shall say of thee, How thou hast perished, O noble city, that dwellest by the sea, that were strong in the sea, with thy inhabitants, which inhabitants all the peoples feared!) 17 Then they will take up a lament concerning you and say to you: " 'How you are destroyed, O city of renown, peopled by men of the sea! You were a power on the seas, you and your citizens; you put your terror on all who lived there.
18 Now ships shall wonder in the day of thy dread, and isles in the sea shall be troubled, for none goeth out of thee. (Now the people shall wonder on the day of thy downfall, and the islands in the sea shall be troubled, for no one dwelleth within thee any more.) 18 Now the coastlands tremble on the day of your fall; the islands in the sea are terrified at your collapse.'
19 For the Lord God saith these things, When I shall give thee to be a city desolate, as the cities that be not inhabited, and I shall bring on thee the depth of waters, and many waters shall cover thee. (For the Lord God saith these things, I shall make thee to be a desolate city, like the cities that be not inhabited, and I shall bring upon thee the water from the depths, and many waters shall cover thee.) 19 "This is what the Sovereign LORD says: When I make you a desolate city, like cities no longer inhabited, and when I bring the ocean depths over you and its vast waters cover you,
20 And I shall draw thee down with them that go down into a pit, to the people everlasting; and I shall set thee in the last land, as old wildernesses, with them that be led down into a pit, that thou be not inhabited. Certainly when I shall give glory in the land of livers, (And I shall draw thee down with those who go down into the pit, with the people of all the ages; and I shall put thee in the last land, an eternal wilderness, with them who be led down into the pit, so that thou be not inhabited. Truly when I shall give glory in the land of the living,) 20 then I will bring you down with those who go down to the pit, to the people of long ago. I will make you dwell in the earth below, as in ancient ruins, with those who go down to the pit, and you will not return or take your place in the land of the living.
21 I shall drive thee into nought, and thou shalt not be; and thou shalt be sought, and thou shalt no more be found [into] without end, saith the Lord God. (then I shall drive thee down into nothing, and thou shalt not be; and thou shalt be sought, but thou shalt never be found again, saith the Lord God.) 21 I will bring you to a horrible end and you will be no more. You will be sought, but you will never again be found, declares the Sovereign LORD."
