Ezekiel 27:1-9, 25b-36

Lamentation over Tyre

27The word of the Lord came to me: 2Now you, mortal, raise a lamentation over Tyre, 3and say to Tyre, which sits at the entrance to the sea, merchant of the peoples on many coastlands, Thus says the Lord God:
O Tyre, you have said,
   ‘I am perfect in beauty.’
4 Your borders are in the heart of the seas;
   your builders made perfect your beauty.
5 They made all your planks
   of fir trees from Senir;
they took a cedar from Lebanon
   to make a mast for you.
6 From oaks of Bashan
   they made your oars;
they made your deck of pines*
   from the coasts of Cyprus,
   inlaid with ivory.
7 Of fine embroidered linen from Egypt
   was your sail,
   serving as your ensign;
blue and purple from the coasts of Elishah
   was your awning.
8 The inhabitants of Sidon and Arvad
   were your rowers;
skilled men of Zemer* were within you,
   they were your pilots.
9 The elders of Gebal and its artisans were within you,
   caulking your seams;
all the ships of the sea with their mariners were within you,
   to barter for your wares. 25The ships of Tarshish travelled for you in your trade.
So you were filled and heavily laden
   in the heart of the seas.
26 Your rowers have brought you
   into the high seas.
The east wind has wrecked you
   in the heart of the seas.
27 Your riches, your wares, your merchandise,
   your mariners and your pilots,
your caulkers, your dealers in merchandise,
   and all your warriors within you,
with all the company
   that is with you,
sink into the heart of the seas
   on the day of your ruin.
28 At the sound of the cry of your pilots
   the countryside shakes,
29 and down from their ships
   come all that handle the oar.
The mariners and all the pilots of the sea
   stand on the shore
30 and wail aloud over you,
   and cry bitterly.
They throw dust on their heads
   and wallow in ashes;
31 they make themselves bald for you,
   and put on sackcloth,
and they weep over you in bitterness of soul,
   with bitter mourning.
32 In their wailing they raise a lamentation for you,
   and lament over you:
‘Who was ever destroyed* like Tyre
   in the midst of the sea?
33 When your wares came from the seas,
   you satisfied many peoples;
with your abundant wealth and merchandise
   you enriched the kings of the earth.
34 Now you are wrecked by the seas,
   in the depths of the waters;
your merchandise and all your crew
   have sunk with you.
35 All the inhabitants of the coastlands
   are appalled at you;
and their kings are horribly afraid,
   their faces are convulsed.
36 The merchants among the peoples hiss at you;
   you have come to a dreadful end
   and shall be no more for ever.’
