Ezk 27:1The word of Jehovah came again to me, saying,

Ezk 27:2Now you, son of man, take up a lamentation over Tyre;

Ezk 27:3And say to Tyre, O you who dwell at the entry to the sea, merchant of the peoples to many coastlands, Thus says the Lord Jehovah,
You, O Tyre, have said, / I am perfect in beauty.

Ezk 27:4 Your borders are in the heart of the seas; / Your builders have perfected your beauty.

Ezk 27:5 They have made all your planks of fir trees from Senir; / They have taken a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for you.

Ezk 27:6 They have made your oars of the oaks of Bashan; / They have made your boards of cypresses inlaid with ivory from the coasts of Kittim.

Ezk 27:7 Your sail was of fine embroidered linen from Egypt, to be your ensign; / Your awning was of blue and purple material from the coasts of Elishah.

Ezk 27:8 The inhabitants of Sidon and Arvad were your rowers; / Your skilled men, who were in you, O Tyre, were your helmsmen.

Ezk 27:9 The elders of Gebal and her skilled men were in you caulking your seams. / All the ships of the sea and their sailors were within you to barter for your merchandise.

Ezk 27:10 The men of Persia and Lydia and Put were in your army as your men of war. / They hung shields and helmets on you; they endowed you with your splendor.

Ezk 27:11The men of Arvad and Helek were on your walls all around, and valiant men were in your towers; they hung their shields on your walls all around; they perfected your beauty.

Ezk 27:12Tarshish conducted business with you because of the abundance of all your wealth. For your wares they gave silver, iron, tin, and lead.

Ezk 27:13Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were your traders; for your merchandise they gave human beings and vessels of bronze.

Ezk 27:24These were your traders in the finest fabrics, in rolls of blue and embroidered cloth, and in chests of fine woven articles, tightly bound with cords, among your merchandise.

Ezk 27:25The ships of Tarshish transported your merchandise for you;
And you were replenished and made very glorious / In the heart of the seas.

Ezk 27:26 Those who rowed you have brought you into great waters, / But the east wind has shipwrecked you in the heart of the seas.

Ezk 27:27 Your wealth, your wares, your merchandise, / Your sailors, your pilots, / Those who caulked your seams, / The dealers in your merchandise, / And all your men of war, who are in you, / With all your company who are in your midst, / Will sink into the heart of the seas / On the day of your fall.

Ezk 27:28 At the sound of the cry of your pilots / The pasture lands will shake.

Ezk 27:29 And all who handle the oar / Will come down out of their ships; / The sailors and all the pilots of the sea / Will stand upon the land,

Ezk 27:30 And they will make their voice heard for you / And cry out bitterly, / And they will throw dust upon their heads; / They will wallow in ashes.

Ezk 27:31 And they will make themselves bald for you / And gird themselves with sackcloth, / And they will weep for you in bitterness of soul / With bitter mourning.

Ezk 27:32 And in their wailing they will take up a lamentation for you / And lament over you, saying, / Who is like Tyre, / Like her silenced in the midst of the sea?

Ezk 27:33 When your wares went out over the seas, / You satisfied many peoples. / With the abundance of your wealth and your merchandise / You enriched the kings of the earth.

Ezk 27:34 Now you are shipwrecked by the sea / In deep water, / Your merchandise and all your company / Go down in your midst.

Ezk 27:35 All the inhabitants of the coasts / Are astonished at you, / And their kings shudder excessively; / Their countenance is troubled.

Ezk 27:36 Those who conducted business with you among the peoples hiss at you; / You have become a source of terror, / And you will no longer exist.
