CSB 1 An oracle against Tyre: Wail, ships of Tarshish, for your haven has been destroyed. Word has reached them from the land of Cyprus. NIV 1 A prophecy against Tyre: Wail, you ships of Tarshish! For Tyre is destroyed and left without house or harbor. From the land of Cyprus word has come to them. CSB 2 Mourn, inhabitants of the coastland, you merchants of Sidon; your agents have crossed the sea NIV 2 Be silent, you people of the island and you merchants of Sidon, whom the seafarers have enriched. CSB 3 on many waters. Tyre's revenue was the grain from Shihor- the harvest of the Nile. She was the merchant among the nations. NIV 3 On the great waters came the grain of the Shihor; the harvest of the Nile was the revenue of Tyre, and she became the marketplace of the nations. CSB 4 Be ashamed Sidon, the stronghold of the sea, for the sea has spoken: "I have not been in labor or given birth. I have not raised young men [or] brought up young women." NIV 4 Be ashamed, Sidon, and you fortress of the sea, for the sea has spoken: “I have neither been in labor nor given birth; I have neither reared sons nor brought up daughters.” CSB 5 When the news reaches Egypt, they will be in anguish over the news about Tyre. NIV 5 When word comes to Egypt, they will be in anguish at the report from Tyre. CSB 6 Cross over to Tarshish; wail, inhabitants of the coastland! NIV 6 Cross over to Tarshish; wail, you people of the island. CSB 7 Is this your jubilant [city], whose origin was in ancient times, whose feet have taken her to settle far away? NIV 7 Is this your city of revelry, the old, old city, whose feet have taken her to settle in far-off lands? CSB 8 Who planned this against Tyre, the bestower of crowns, whose traders are princes, whose merchants are the honored ones of the earth? NIV 8 Who planned this against Tyre, the bestower of crowns, whose merchants are princes, whose traders are renowned in the earth? CSB 9 The Lord of Hosts planned it, to desecrate all [its] glorious beauty, to disgrace all the honored ones of the earth. NIV 9 The LORD Almighty planned it, to bring down her pride in all her splendor and to humble all who are renowned on the earth. CSB 10 Overflow your land like the Nile, daughter of Tarshish; there is no longer anything to restrain [you]. NIV 10 Till your land as they do along the Nile, Daughter Tarshish, for you no longer have a harbor. CSB 11 He stretched out His hand over the sea; He made kingdoms tremble. The Lord has commanded that the Canaanite fortresses be destroyed. NIV 11 The LORD has stretched out his hand over the sea and made its kingdoms tremble. He has given an order concerning Phoenicia that her fortresses be destroyed. CSB 12 He said, "You will not rejoice any more, ravished young woman, daughter of Sidon. Get up and cross over to Cyprus- even there you will have no rest!" NIV 12 He said, “No more of your reveling, Virgin Daughter Sidon, now crushed! “Up, cross over to Cyprus; even there you will find no rest.” CSB 13 Look at the land of Chaldeans- a people who no longer exist. Assyria destined it for wild beasts. They set up their siege towers and stripped its palaces. They made it a ruin. NIV 13 Look at the land of the Babylonians,this people that is now of no account! The Assyrians have made it a place for desert creatures; they raised up their siege towers, they stripped its fortresses bare and turned it into a ruin. CSB 14 Wail, ships of Tarshish, because your fortress is destroyed! NIV 14 Wail, you ships of Tarshish; your fortress is destroyed! CSB 15 On that day Tyre will be forgotten for 70 years-the life span of one king. At the end of 70 years, what the song [says] about the prostitute will happen to Tyre: NIV 15 At that time Tyre will be forgotten for seventy years, the span of a king’s life. But at the end of these seventy years, it will happen to Tyre as in the song of the prostitute: CSB 16 Pick up [your] harp, stroll through the city, prostitute forgotten [by men]. Play skillfully, sing many a song, and you will be thought of again. NIV 16 “Take up a harp, walk through the city, you forgotten prostitute; play the harp well, sing many a song, so that you will be remembered.” CSB 17 And at the end of the 70 years, the Lord will restore Tyre and she will go back into business, prostituting herself with all the kingdoms of the world on the face of the earth. NIV 17 At the end of seventy years, the LORD will deal with Tyre. She will return to her lucrative prostitution and will ply her trade with all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. CSB 18 But her profits and wages will be dedicated to the Lord. They will not be stored or saved, for her profit will go to those who live in the Lord's presence, to provide them with ample food and sacred clothing. NIV 18 Yet her profit and her earnings will be set apart for the LORD; they will not be stored up or hoarded. Her profits will go to those who live before the LORD, for abundant food and fine clothes.
