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.
35 ‘All the (M)inhabitants of the coastlands
Are appalled at you,
And their kings are horribly afraid;
They are troubled in countenance.
36 ‘The merchants among the peoples (N)hiss at you;
You have become [b]terrified
And you (O)will cease to be forever.’”’”
