Tyrus, for insulting against Jerusalem, is threatened.
Ezekiel 26:1 And it came to passe in the eleuenth yeere, in the first [day] of the moneth, [that] the word of the LORD came vnto me, saying, Ezekiel 26:2 Sonne of man, because that Tyrus hath said against Ierusalem, Aha, she is broken [that was] the gates of the people, she is turned vnto me, I shalbe replenished [now] she is laid waste: Ezekiel 26:3 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I [am] against thee, O Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come vp against thee, as the sea causeth his waues to come vp. Ezekiel 26:4 And they shall destroy the walles of Tyrus, and breake downe her towres: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rocke. Ezekiel 26:5 It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the middest of the sea: for I haue spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD, and it shall become a spoile to the nations. Ezekiel 26:6 And her daughters which [are] in the field shall be slaine by the sword, and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.
The power of Nebuchadrezzar against her.
Ezekiel 26:7 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring vpon Tyrus, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the North, with horses, and with charets, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people. Ezekiel 26:8 Hee shall slay with the sword thy daughters in the field, and he shal make a fort against thee, and cast a mount against thee, and lift vp the buckler against thee. Ezekiel 26:9 Hee shall set engines of warre against thy walles, and with his axes he shall breake downe thy towres. Ezekiel 26:10 By reason of the abundance of his horses, their dust shall couer thee: thy walles shall shake at the noise of the horsemen, and of the wheeles, and of the charets, when he shall enter into thy gates, as men enter into a citie wherein is made a breach. Ezekiel 26:11 With the hoofes of his horses shall he tread downe all thy streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong garisons shall goe downe to the ground. Ezekiel 26:12 And they shall make a spoile of thy riches, and make a pray of thy merchandise, and they shall breake downe thy walles, and destroy thy pleasant houses, and they shall lay thy stones, and thy timber, and thy dust in the midst of the water. Ezekiel 26:13 And I wil cause the noise of thy songs to cease, and the sound of thy harpes shalbe no more heard. Ezekiel 26:14 And I will make thee like the top of a rocke: they shall bee a place to spread nets vpon: thou shalt bee built no more: for I the LORD haue spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD.
The mourning and astonishment of the sea at her fall.
Ezekiel 26:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD to Tyrus; Shall not the Iles shake at the sound of thy fall, when the wounded crie, when the slaughter is made in the midst of thee? Ezekiel 26:16 Then all the Princes of the sea shall come downe from their thrones, and lay away their robes, and put off their broidred garments: they shall cloth themselues with trembling, they shall sit vpon the ground, and shall tremble at [euery] moment, and be astonished at thee. Ezekiel 26:17 And they shall take vp a lamentation for thee, and say to thee, How art thou destroyed that wast inhabited of Sea-faring men, the renowned citie, which wast strong in the sea, she and her inhabitants, which cause their terrour [to be] on all that haunt it? Ezekiel 26:18 Now shall the Iles tremble in the day of thy fall, yea the Iles that [are] in the sea, shall bee troubled at thy departure. Ezekiel 26:19 For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shal make thee a desolate citie, like the cities that are not inhabited, when I shall bring vp the deepe vpon thee, and great waters shall couer thee; Ezekiel 26:20 When I shall bring thee downe, with them that descend into the pit, with the people of old time, and shall set thee in the low parts of the earth, in places desolate of olde, with them that goe downe to the pit, that thou bee not inhabited, and I shall set glorie in the land of the liuing: Ezekiel 26:21 I will make thee a terrour, and thou shalt bee no [more]: though thou be sought for, yet shalt thou neuer bee found againe, saith the Lord GOD.
