and will be found no more;
22and af  the sound of harpists and musicians, of flute players and trumpeters,
will be heard in you no more,
and a craftsman of any craft
will be found in you no more,
and ag  the sound of the mill
will be heard in you no more,
23and the light of a lamp
will shine in you no more,
and ah  the voice of bridegroom and bride
will be heard in you no more,
for ai  your merchants were the great ones of the earth,
and all nations were deceived aj  by your sorcery.
