The Fall of Tyre

23 The [a]oracle concerning (A)Tyre.

Wail, O (B)ships of (C)Tarshish,
For Tyre is destroyed, without house or [b](D)harbor;
It is reported to them from the land of [c](E)Cyprus.
(F)Be silent, you inhabitants of the coastland,
You merchants of Sidon;
[d]Your messengers crossed the sea
And were on many waters.
(G)The grain of the [e](H)Nile, the harvest of the River was her revenue;
And she was the (I)market of nations.
Be ashamed, O (J)Sidon;
For the sea speaks, the stronghold of the sea, saying,
“I have neither travailed nor given birth,
I have neither brought up young men nor reared virgins.”
When the report reaches Egypt,
They will be in (K)anguish at the report of Tyre.
Pass over to (L)Tarshish;
Wail, O inhabitants of the coastland.

(B)How you have perished, O inhabited one,
From the seas, O renowned city,
Which was (C)mighty on the sea,
She and her inhabitants,
Who [a]imposed [b]her terror
On all her inhabitants!
