Against the City of Tyre. 1On the first day of the … month in the eleventh year, the word of the LORD came to me: 2Son of man, because of what Tyre said of Jerusalem:

“Aha! it is broken, the gateway to the peoples; now that it is ruined, its wealth reverts to me!” 3therefore thus says the Lord GOD See! I am coming at you, Tyre; I will churn up against you many nations, even as the sea churns up its waves; y Is 26, 1–21: 47, 4; Jl 4, 4f; Zec 9, 2ff . 4They shall destroy the walls of Tyre and raze her towers. I will scrape the ground from her and leave her a bare rock;* 5She shall be a drying place for nets in the midst of the sea.

I have spoken, says the Lord GOD: and she shall be booty for the nations. 6And her daughters* on the mainland shall be slaughtered by the sword; thus they shall know that I am the LORD.

7For thus says the Lord GOD: I am now bringing up against Tyre from the north Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, the king of kings, with horses and chariots, with cavalry and a great and mighty army.

8Your daughters on the mainland he shall slay with the sword; He shall place a siege tower against you,cast up a ramp about you, and raise his shields against you. 9He shall pound your walls with battering‐rams and break down your towers with his weapons. 10The surge of his horses shall cover you with dust, amid the noise of steeds, of wheels and of chariots. Your walls shall shake as he enters your gates, even as one enters a city that is breached. 11With the hoofs of his horse she shall trample all your streets; Your people he shall slay by the sword; your mighty pillars he shall pull to the ground. 12Your wealth shall be plundered, your merchandise pillaged; Your walls shall be torn down, your precious houses demolished; Your stones, your timber, and your clayshall be cast into the sea. 13I will put an end to the noise of your songs, and the sound of your lyres shall be heard no more. 14I will make you a bare rock; a drying place for nets shall you be.

Never shall you be rebuilt, for I have spoken, says the Lord GOD.

15Thus says the Lord GOD to Tyre: At the noise of your fall, at the groaning of the wounded, when the sword slays in your midst, shall not the isles quake? 16All the princes of the sea*shall step down from their thrones, lay aside their robes, and strip off their embroidered garments. They shall be clothed in mourning and, sitting on the ground, they shall tremble at every moment and be horrified at you. 17Then they shall utter a lament over you:

How have you perished, gone from the seas, city most prized! Once she was mighty on the sea, she and her dwellers, Who spread terror into allthat dwelt by the sea. 18On this, the day of your fall, the islands quake!

The isles in the sea are terrified at your passing.

19For thus says the Lord GOD: When I make you a city desolate like cities that are no longer inhabited, when I churn up the abyss against you, and its mighty waters cover you, 20then I will thrust you down with those who descend into the pit,*those of the bygone age; and I will make you dwell in the nether lands, in the everlasting ruins, with those who go down to the pit, so that you may never return to take your place in the land of the living.21I will make you a devastation, and you shall be no more; you shall be sought, but never again found, says the Lord GOD.
