1TYRE: an oracle. Wail, you ships of Tarshish, for the harbour is destroyed; the port of entry from Kittim is swept away.

2Lament, you people of the sea coast, you merchants of Sidon,

3whose envoys cross the great waters, whose harvest is grain from Shihor, whose revenue comes from trade between nations.

4In dismay Sidon, the sea-fortress, says: “I no longer feel the anguish of labour or bear children; I have no young sons to rear, no daughters to bring up.”

5When the news reaches Egypt her people will writhe in anguish at the fate of Tyre.

6Make your way to Tarshish; wail, you dwellers by the sea.

7Is this your bustling city of ancient foundation, the founder of colonies in distant parts?

8Whose was this plan against Tyre, a city with crowns in its gift, whose merchants were princes, whose traders the most honoured men on earth?

9The LORD of Hosts planned it to prick every noble's pride and humiliate all the most honoured men on earth.

10Take to the tillage of your fields, you people of Tarshish; for your market is lost.

11The LORD has stretched out his hand over the sea and made kingdoms quake; he has decreed the destruction of Canaan's marts.

12He has said, “You will be busy no more, you, the sorely oppressed city of Sidon. Though you make your escape to Kittim, even there you will find no respite.”

13Look at this land, the destined home of ships! The Chaldaeans (this was the people; it was not Assyria) erected siege-towers, tore down its palaces, and laid it in ruins.

14Wail, you ships of Tarshish; for your haven is destroyed.

15From that day Tyre will be forgotten for seventy years, the span of one king's life. At the end of the seventy years her plight will be that of the harlot in the song:

16Take your lyre, walk about the city, poor, forgotten harlot; touch the strings sweetly, sing all your songs, make men remember you once more.

17At the end of seventy years the LORD will turn again to Tyre; she will go back to her old trade and hire herself out to every kingdom on earth.

18But the profits of her trading will be dedicated to the LORD; they will not be stored up or hoarded, but given to those who worship the LORD, to purchase food in plenty and fine apparel.
