19 All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more forever."
20 The word of the LORD came to me:
21 "Son of man, set your face toward Sidon, and prophesy against her
22 and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I am against you, O Sidon, and I will manifest my glory in your midst. And they shall know that I am the LORD when I execute judgments in her and manifest my holiness in her;
