The Passion Translation
7 Is this your once boisterous city, founded so long ago?
Is this the city that once sent settlers over the sea?
8 Who has planned this for imperial Tyre, who once wore her crown?
Your merchants were nobles,
and your traders were honored by the world.
9 Yahweh, the Commander of Angel Armies, has planned it!
His plan is to eliminate[a] the pride of your presumed splendor
and to humiliate the honored of the world.
- Isaiah 23:9 Or “pollute, defile.”
