16 All the princes of the sea will descend from their thrones,(A) remove their robes, and strip off their embroidered garments. They will clothe themselves with trembling; they will sit on the ground, tremble continually, and be appalled(B) at you. 17 Then they will lament(C) for you and say of you:

How you have perished, city of renown,
you who were populated from the seas![a]
She who was powerful on the sea,
she and all of her inhabitants
inflicted their terror.[b]
18 Now the coastlands tremble(D)
on the day of your downfall;
the islands in the sea
are alarmed by your demise.”
