Lament over Tyre

Heb YHWH, usually rendered  Lord , and so throughout the ch
 God, O Tyre, you have said, ‘I am perfect in beauty.’
Your borders are in the heart of the seas;
Your builders have perfected your beauty.
“They have
Lit built
made all your planks of fir trees from g Senir;
They have taken a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for you.
“Of h oaks from i Bashan they have made your oars;
With ivory they have
Lit made
inlaid your deck of boxwood from the coastlands of k Cyprus.

So that it became your

All the ships of the sea and their sailors were with you in order to deal in your merchandise.

10  u Persia and v Lud and w Put were in your army, your men of war. They hung shield and helmet in you; they set forth your splendor. 11 The sons of Arvad and your army were on your walls, all around, and the
Or valorous ones
Gammadim were in your towers. They hung their shields on your walls all around; they perfected your beauty.

Lit honored
In the heart of the seas.

26 Your rowers have brought you
Into bb great waters;
The bc east wind has broken you
In the heart of the seas.
27 Your wealth, your wares, your merchandise,
Your sailors and your pilots,
Your repairers of seams, your dealers in merchandise
And all your men of war who are in you,
With all your company that is in your midst,
Will fall into the heart of the seas
On the day of your overthrow.
28 At the sound of the cry of your pilots
The pasture lands will bd shake.
29 All who handle the oar,
The be sailors and all the pilots of the sea
Will come down from their ships;
They will stand on the land,
30 And they will bf make their voice heard over you
And will cry bitterly.
They will bg cast dust on their heads,
They will bh wallow in ashes.
31 Also they will make themselves bi bald for you
And bj gird themselves with sackcloth;
And they will bk weep for you in bitterness of soul
With bitter mourning.
32 Moreover, in their wailing they will take up a bl lamentation for you
And lament over you:
Who is like Tyre,
Like her who is silent in the midst of the sea?
33 When your wares went out from the seas,
You satisfied many peoples;
With the bm abundance of your wealth and your merchandise
You enriched the kings of earth.
Lit The time
Now that you are bo broken by the seas
In the depths of the waters,
Your bp merchandise and all your company
Have fallen in the midst of you.
35 All the bq inhabitants of the coastlands
Are appalled at you,
And their kings are horribly afraid;
They are troubled in countenance.
36 The merchants among the peoples br hiss at you;
You have become
Lit terrors
And you bt will cease to be forever.’”’”
