New Century Version
16 Then all the leaders of the seacoast will get down from their thrones, take off their beautiful needlework clothes, and show how afraid they are. They will sit on the ground and tremble all the time. When they see you, they will be shocked. 17 They will begin singing a funeral song about you and will say to you:
‘Tyre, you famous city, you have been destroyed!
You have lost your sea power!
You and your people
had great power on the seas.
You made everyone around you
afraid of you.
18 Now the people who live by the coast tremble,
now that you have fallen.
The islands of the sea
are afraid because you have been defeated.’
