16 The kings will step down from their thrones, then take off their royal robes and fancy clothes, and sit on the ground, trembling. They will be so shocked at the news of your defeat that they will shake in fear 17 and sing this funeral song:

“The great city beside the sea
    is destroyed![a]
Its people once ruled the coast
    and terrified everyone there.
18 But now Tyre is in ruins,
and the people on the coast
    stare at it in horror
    and tremble in fear.”
