Ezekiel 26:13 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 26:13

And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease
As this city abounded with riches, so with carnal mirth and pleasure; it was a "joyous city", ( Isaiah 23:7 ) , the inhabitants lived merrily and jovially; were much given to music, which was very diverting and amusing to foreigners that traded with them; but now it would be all over with them; there would be no more songs, nor any to sing them: and the sound of thy harps shall be no more heard;
neither vocal nor instrumental music; and this will be one day the case of Rome, of which Tyre was a type, ( Revelation 18:22 ) .
