New American Bible (Revised Edition)
16 All the princes of the sea[a]
will step down from their thrones,
Lay aside their robes,
and strip off their embroidered garments.
Clothed in mourning,
they will sit on the ground
And tremble, horror-struck
and appalled at you.(A)
17 They will raise lament[b] over you
and say to you:
How you have perished,
gone from the seas,
Once she was mighty on the sea,
she and her inhabitants,
Those who spread their terror
to all who dwelt nearby.(B)
18 On this, the day of your fall,
the islands quake!
The islands in the sea
are terrified at your passing.
New International Version
16 Then all the princes of the coast will step down from their thrones and lay aside their robes and take off their embroidered(A) garments. Clothed(B) with terror, they will sit on the ground,(C) trembling(D) every moment, appalled(E) at you. 17 Then they will take up a lament(F) concerning you and say to you:
“‘How you are destroyed, city of renown,
peopled by men of the sea!
You were a power on the seas,
you and your citizens;
you put your terror
on all who lived there.(G)
18 Now the coastlands tremble(H)
on the day of your fall;
the islands in the sea
are terrified at your collapse.’(I)
