Prophecy Against Tyre

26 iIn the eleventh year, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me:  j“Son of man, because kTyre said concerning Jerusalem, l‘Aha, the gate of the peoples is broken; it has swung open to me. I shall be replenished, now that she is laid waste,’  therefore thus says the Lord God: mBehold, I am against you, O Tyre, and will bring up nmany nations against you, oas the sea brings up its waves.  They shall destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers, and I will scrape her soil from her and pmake her a bare rock.  She qshall be in the midst of the sea a place for the spreading of nets, rfor I have spoken, declares the Lord God. And she shall become plunder for the nations,  and her daughters on the mainland shall be killed by the sword. sThen they will know that I am the Lord.

 “For thus says the Lord God: tBehold, I will bring against Tyre ufrom the north Nebuchadnezzar1 king of Babylon, vking of kings, with horses and chariots, and with horsemen and a host of many soldiers.  He will kill with the sword wyour daughters on the mainland. xHe will set up a siege wall against you and throw up a mound against you, and raise ya roof of shields against you.  zHe will direct the shock of his battering rams against your walls, and with his axes he will break down your towers.  10 His horses will be so many that their dust will cover you. Your walls will shake at the noise of the horsemen and wagons and chariots, when he enters your gates as men enter a city that has been breached.  11 With the hoofs of his horses he will trample all your streets. He will kill your people with the sword, and your mighty pillars will fall to the ground.  12 They will plunder ayour riches and loot ayour merchandise. They will break down your walls and destroy your pleasant houses. Your stones and timber and bsoil they will cast into the midst of the waters.  13 cAnd I will stop the music of your songs, and dthe sound of your lyres shall be heard no more.  14 pI will make you a bare rock. qYou shall be a place for the spreading of nets. You shall never be rebuilt, rfor I am the Lord; I have spoken, declares the Lord God.

 15 “Thus says the Lord God to Tyre: Will not ethe coastlands shake at the sound of your fall, fwhen the wounded groan, when slaughter is made in your midst?  16 Then all gthe princes of the sea will step down from their thrones and hremove their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They will clothe themselves with trembling; ithey will sit on the ground and jtremble every moment and kbe appalled at you.  17 And they will lraise a lamentation over you and say to you,

“ ‘How you have perished,

you who were inhabited from the seas,

O city renowned,

mwho was mighty on the sea;

she and her inhabitants nimposed their terror

on all her inhabitants!

  18  Now the coastlands tremble

on the day of your fall,

and the coastlands that are on the sea

are dismayed at your passing.’

 19 “For thus says the Lord God: When I make you a city laid waste, like the cities that are not inhabited, owhen I bring up the deep over you, and the great waters cover you,  20 then pI will make you go down with those who go down to the pit, to the people of old, and I will make you to dwell in the world below, among ruins from of old, pwith those who go down to the pit, so that you will not be inhabited; but I will set beauty qin the land of the living.  21 I will bring you rto a dreadful end, and you shall be no more. sThough you be sought for, you will never be found again, declares the Lord God.”
