Ezekiel 27


A Lamentation against Sor

1And [3came 1the word 2of the  lord] to me, saying, 2And you, O son of man, take [2against 3Sor 1a lamentation]. 3And you shall say to Sor, to the one dwelling upon the entrance of the sea, to the market-place of the peoples from [2islands 1many], Thus says Adonai the  lord to Sor, You said, I invested myself with my beauty. 4In the heart of the sea are your borders, your sons invested to you beauty. 5Cedar of Senir was used to build by you; they used fascia planks of cypress from Lebanon; [2was taken 3to make 4masts for you 1fir]. 6From out of Bashan they made your oars; [2your temples 1they made] from out of ivory; houses of the woods from the islands of the Chittim. 7Linen with embroidery from out of Egypt was to you for a strewn bed, to put [2upon 3you 1glory], and to clothe you in blue and purple from the islands of Elishah; and they became your wraps. 8And your rulers, the ones dwelling in Sidon, and Arvad became your oarsmen. Your wise men, O Sor, the ones who were among you, these were your navigators. 9The elders of the Biblians, and their wise men who were among you, these grew in strength for your counsel. And all the boats of the sea and their oarsmen came to you from the descent of the west. 10Persians and Lidians and Libyans were [2among 3your force 1men], of your warriors -- [2shields 3and 4helmets 1they hung] among you; these gave you glory. 11Sons of Arvad, and your force were upon your walls round about. But also Medes in your towers were guards. [2their quivers 1They hung] upon your moorings, round about these they perfected your beauty. 12Carthaginians were your merchants because of the abundance of all your strength. Silver, and gold, and brass, and iron, and tin, and lead they put in your market. 13The Greek and the whole world, and the places extending; these traded with you in lives of men; and items of brass they gave for your trade. 14From out of the house of Torgarmah, horses and horsemen and mules they gave for your market. 15The sons of the Rhodians were your merchants; from the islands they multiplied your trade, even teeth of ivory; and to the ones bringing you repaid with your wages, 16of men for your trading from the multitude of your consolidation; balsam and purple and linen, and colored works from out of Tharsis; and Ramoth and Chohor gave for your market. 17Judah, and the sons of Israel, these were your merchants in the sale of grain and perfumed liquids; and foremost honey and olive oil and balm they gave unto your consolidation. 18Damascus was your trade in the abundance of your works, from an abundance of your power; wine from Helbon, and [2wool 1shining] from Miletus. 19Dan and Javan and Moozel were for your market; iron for working implements and wheels [2among 3your consolidation 1are]. 20Dedan were your merchants with [2animals 1choice] for chariots. 21 Arabia and all the rulers of Kedar, these were your merchants trading [2through 3your hand 1camels], and lambs, and rams in which they traded with you. 22 Your merchants were Sheba and Raamah, these were your merchants with foremost of spices, and [2stones 1precious]; and [2gold 1they gave] for your market. 23Haran and Canneh and Eden, these were your merchants; Sheba and Assyria and Chilmad were your merchants; 24bringing trade of blue, and [2treasures 1choice] being bound in rough cords, and cypress. 25Boats among them were your merchants in the abundance of your consolidations. And you were filled up and weighed down exceedingly in the heart of the seas. 26[4into 6water 5much 2led 3you 1Your oarsmen]; the wind of the south broke you in the heart of the sea. 27 Your force, and your wage, and your consolidations, and your oarsmen, and your navigators, and your counselors, and your consolidations from out of your consolidations, and all the men, your warriors among you; and [2whole 3gathering 1your] in the midst of you shall fall in the heart of the sea in the day of your downfall. 28At the sound of your cry your navigators [2with fear 1shall be afraid]. 29And [3shall go down 4from 5their boats 1all 2your oarsmen], and the crewmen, and the captains of the sea; [2upon 3the 4ground 1they shall stand]. 30And they shall shout over you with their voice, and shall cry out bitterly, and shall place earth upon their head, and [2of ashes 1shall spread a bed]. 31And they shall shave because of you unto baldness; and they shall gird on sackcloth, and shall weep over you in bitterness of life, even lamenting bitterly. 32[2shall take 1Their sons 4over 5you 3a lamentation] and a wailing, Sor, Who is as Tyre observing silence in the middle of the sea? 33How much [2did you find 1wage] from the sea? You filled up nations from your abundance, and from your consolidation you enriched all the kings of the earth. 34But now you are broken in the sea; [5is in 6the depth 7of the water 1your consolidation 2and 3all 4your gathering] in your midst. [3fell 1All 2your oarsmen]. 35All the ones dwelling the islands shall be gloomy over you, and their kings [2with a change of state 1shall be amazed], and [2shall burst into tears 1their countenance]. 36Merchants from the nations whistled at you; [2for destruction 1you became], and no longer will you be into the eon.
