11 He stretched out his hand over the sea,
he shook the kingdoms:
the Lord hath given a commandment against the merchant city,
to destroy the strong holds thereof.
12 And he said, Thou shalt no more rejoice,
O thou oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon:
arise, pass over to Chittim;
there also shalt thou have no rest.
13 Behold the land of the Chaldeans;
this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it
for them that dwell in the wilderness:
they set up the towers thereof,
they raised up the palaces thereof; and he brought it to ruin.
