The great and irrevocable fall thereof.
Ezekiel 27:26 Thy rowers haue brought thee into great waters: the East winde hath broken thee in the middest of the Seas. Ezekiel 27:27 Thy riches and thy faires, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and thy pilots, thy calkers, and the occupiers of thy merchandise, and all thy men of warre that [are] in thee, and in all thy company, which [is] in the midst of thee, shall fall into the middest of the seas, in the day of thy ruine. Ezekiel 27:28 The suburbs shall shake at the sound of the crie of thy pilots. Ezekiel 27:29 And all that handle the oare; the mariners, [and] all the pilots of the Sea, shal come downe from their ships, they shall stand vpon the land; Ezekiel 27:30 And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and shall crie bitterly, and shall cast vp dust vpon their heads, they shall wallow themselues in the ashes. Ezekiel 27:31 And they shall make themselues vtterly balde for thee, and girde them with sackecloth, and they shall weepe for thee with bitternesse of heart [and] bitter wailing. Ezekiel 27:32 And in their wailing, they shall take vp a lamentation for thee, and lament ouer thee, [saying]; What [citie is] like Tyrus, like the destroyed in the middest of the sea? Ezekiel 27:33 When thy wares went foorth out of the seas, thou filledst many people, thou didst enrich the kings of the earth, with the multitude of thy riches, and of thy merchandise. Ezekiel 27:34 In the time [when] thou shalt be broken by the seas in the depths of the waters, thy merchandise and all thy companie in the middest of thee shal fall. Ezekiel 27:35 All the inhabitants of the Iles shall bee astonished at thee, and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be troubled in [their] countenance. Ezekiel 27:36 The merchants among the people shall hisse at thee, thou shalt bee a terrour, and neuer [shalt be] any more.
