Ezekiel 26

Judgment on Tyre

1Now in the eleventh year, on the first of the month, the word of the  Lord came to me saying, 2Son of man, because a  Tyre has said concerning Jerusalem, ‘Aha, the b  gateway of the peoples is broken; it has
Lit turned
d  opened to me. I shall be filled, now that she is laid waste,’
3therefore thus says the Lord
Heb YHWH, usually rendered  Lord , and so throughout the ch
 God, ‘Behold, I am against you, O Tyre, and I will bring up f  many nations against you, as the g  sea brings up its waves.
4‘They will h  destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers; and I will scrape her debris from her and make her a bare rock. 5She will be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea, for I have spoken,’ declares the Lord  God, ‘and she will become i  spoil for the nations. 6‘Also her j  daughters who are
Lit in the field
on the mainland will be slain by the sword, and they will know that I am the  Lord.’”

7For thus says the Lord  God, “Behold, I will bring upon Tyre from the north Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon l  king of kings, with horses m  chariots, cavalry and
Lit an assembly, even many people
a great army.
8He will slay your daughters
Lit in the field
on the mainland with the sword; and he will make p  siege walls against you, cast up a q  ramp against you and raise up a large shield against you.
9The blow of his battering rams he will direct against your walls, and with his
Lit swords
axes he will break down your towers.
10Because of the multitude of his s  horses, the dust raised by them will cover you; your walls will t  shake at the noise of cavalry and
Lit wheels
wagons and chariots when he v  enters your gates as men enter a city that is breached.
11With the hoofs of his w  horses he will trample all your streets. He will slay your people with the sword; and your strong pillars will x  come down to the ground. 12Also they will make a spoil of your riches and a prey of your y  merchandise, z  break down your walls and destroy your aa  pleasant houses, and
Lit put
throw your stones and your timbers and your debris ac  into the water.
13“So I will
Lit cause to cease
silence the sound of your ae  songs, and the sound of your af  harps will be heard no more.
14I will make you a bare rock; you will be a place for the spreading of nets. You will be ag  built no more, for I the ah   Lord have spoken,” declares the Lord  God.

15Thus says the Lord  God to Tyre, “Shall not the ai  coastlands aj  shake at the sound of your fall when the wounded groan, when the slaughter occurs in your midst? 16Then all the princes of the sea will ak  go down from their thrones, remove their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They will al  clothe themselves with
Lit tremblings
trembling; they will sit on the ground, an  tremble every moment and be appalled at you.
17They will take up a ao  lamentation over you and say to you, ap  How you have perished, O inhabited one,
From the seas, O renowned city,
Which was aq  mighty on the sea,
She and her inhabitants,
Lit put
Lit their
her terror
On all her inhabitants!
18Now the at  coastlands will tremble
On the day of your fall;
Yes, the coastlands which are by the sea
Will be terrified at your au  passing.’”

19For thus says the Lord  God, “When I make you a desolate city, like the cities which are not inhabited, when I av  bring up the deep over you and the great waters cover you, 20then I will bring you down with those who aw  go down to the pit, to the people of old, and I will make you dwell in the ax  lower parts of the earth, like the ancient waste places, with those who go down to the pit, so that you will not
Or return
be inhabited; but I will set az  glory in the land of the living.
21“I will
Lit give you terrors
bring bb  terrors on you and you will be no more; though you will be sought, bc  you will never be found again,” declares the Lord  God.
