trade shall cease, and the mixed multitude of traders from all parts shall be seen no more; the natives of the place shall perish; mariners and soldiers, and persons of every rank and degree, age, and sex. The Targum renders it,
``all thine armies.''Abendana suggests that this respects the destruction of Tyre by Alexander the great.
