27 “Your wealth, your wares, your merchandise,
Your sailors and your pilots,
Your repairers of seams, your dealers in merchandise
And all your men of war who are in you,
With all your company that is in your midst,
Will fall into the heart of the seas
On the day of your overthrow.
28 “At the sound of the cry of your pilots
The pasture lands will (A)shake.
29 “All who handle the oar,
The (B)sailors and all the pilots of the sea
Will come down from their ships;
They will stand on the land,
30 And they will (C)make their voice heard over you
And will cry bitterly.
They will (D)cast dust on their heads,
They will (E)wallow in ashes.
31 “Also they will make themselves (F)bald for you
And (G)gird themselves with sackcloth;
And they will (H)weep for you in bitterness of soul
With bitter mourning.
32 “Moreover, in their wailing they will take up a (I)lamentation for you
And lament over you:
‘Who is like Tyre,
Like her who is silent in the midst of the sea?
33 ‘When your wares went out from the seas,
You satisfied many peoples;
With the (J)abundance of your wealth and your merchandise
You enriched the kings of earth.
34 [a]Now that you are (K)broken by the seas
In the depths of the waters,
Your (L)merchandise and all your company
Have fallen in the midst of you.
