Ezekiel 26

Judgment on Tyre

1 Now in the eleventh * year, on the first of the month, the word of the LORD came to me saying,
2 "Son of man, because * 1Tyre has said concerning Jerusalem, 'Aha, the 2gateway of the peoples is broken; it has 3opened to me. I shall be filled, now that she is laid waste,'
3 therefore thus says the Lord GOD, 'Behold, I am against you, O Tyre, and I will bring up 4many nations against you, as the 5sea brings up its waves.
4 'They will 6destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers; and I will scrape her debris from her and make her a bare rock.
5 'She will be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea, for I have spoken,' declares the Lord GOD, 'and she will become 7spoil for the nations.
6 'Also her 8daughters who are on the mainland will be slain by the sword, and they will know that I am the LORD.' "
7 For thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I will bring upon Tyre from the north Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, 9king of kings, with horses, 10chariots, cavalry and a great army *.
8 "He will slay your daughters on the mainland with the sword; and he will make 11siege walls against you, cast up a 12ramp against you and raise up a large shield against you.
9 "The blow of his battering rams he will direct against your walls, and with his axes he will break down your towers.
10 "Because of the multitude of his 13horses, the dust raised by them will cover you; your walls will 14shake at the noise of cavalry and wagons and chariots when he 15enters your gates as men enter a city that is breached.
11 "With the hoofs of his 16horses he will trample all your streets. He will slay your people with the sword; and your strong pillars will 17come down to the ground.
12 "Also they will make a spoil of your riches and a prey of your 18merchandise, 19break down your walls and destroy your 20pleasant houses, and throw your stones and your timbers and your debris 21into the water.
13 "So I will silence the sound of your 22songs, and the sound of your 23harps will be heard no more.
14 "I will make you a bare rock; you will be a place for the spreading of nets. You will be 24built no more, for I the 25LORD have spoken," declares the Lord GOD.
15 Thus says the Lord GOD to Tyre, "Shall not the 26coastlands 27shake at the sound of your fall when the wounded groan, when the slaughter occurs in your midst?
16 "Then all the princes of the sea will 28go down from their thrones, remove their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They will 29clothe themselves with trembling; they will sit on the ground, 30tremble every moment and be appalled at you.
17 "They will take up a 31lamentation over you and say to you, '32How you have perished, O inhabited one, From the seas, O renowned city, Which was 33mighty on the sea, She and her inhabitants, Who imposed her terror On all her inhabitants!
18 'Now the 34coastlands will tremble On the day of your fall; Yes, the coastlands which are by the sea Will be terrified at your 35passing.' "
19 For thus says the Lord GOD, "When I make you a desolate city, like the cities which are not inhabited, when I 36bring up the deep over you and the great waters cover you,
20 then I will bring you down with those who 37go down to the pit, to the people of old, and I will make you dwell in the 38lower parts of the earth, like the ancient waste places, with those who go down to the pit, so that you will not be inhabited; but I will set 39glory in the land of the living.
21 "I will bring 40terrors on you and you will be no more; though you will be sought, 41you will never * be found again," declares the Lord GOD.
