11 He stretched out His hand over the sea,
He shook the kingdoms;
The Lord has given a commandment (A)against Canaan
To destroy its strongholds.
12 And He said, “You will rejoice no more,
O you oppressed virgin daughter of Sidon.
Arise, (B)cross over to Cyprus;
There also you will have no rest.”

13 Behold, the land of the (C)Chaldeans,
This people which was not;
Assyria founded it for (D)wild beasts of the desert.
They set up its towers,
They raised up its palaces,
And brought it to ruin.
