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.
