Is this your exultant city
    (A)whose origin is from days of old,
whose feet carried her
    to settle far away?
Who has purposed this
    against Tyre, the bestower of crowns,
whose merchants were princes,
    whose traders were the honored of the earth?
The Lord of hosts has purposed it,
    (B)to defile the pompous pride of all glory,[a]
    to dishonor all the honored of the earth.
