The rich supply of Tyrus.
Ezekiel 27:1 The worde of the Lorde came vnto me, saying: Ezekiel 27:2 O thou sonne of man, take vp a lamentable complaint vpon Tyre, Ezekiel 27:3 And say vnto Tyre that is situate at the entry of the sea, whiche is the mart of the people for many iles, thus sayth the Lorde God O Tyre, thou hast sayde, I am of perfite beautie. Ezekiel 27:4 Thy borders are in the mids of the seas, thy buylders haue made perfite thy beautie. Ezekiel 27:5 They haue made all thy [ship] bordes of firre trees of Shenir, from Libanus haue they taken Cedar trees to make thee mastes: Ezekiel 27:6 And the Okes of Basan to make thee ores, they haue made thy benches of iuory, gotten in Assyria, brought out of the iles of Chittim. Ezekiel 27:7 Fine linnen with broidred worke out of Egypt was spread ouer thee to be thy sayle: blewe silke and purple out of the iles of Elishah was thy couering. Ezekiel 27:8 The inhabitours of Sidon and Aruad were thy mariners: and thy wise men O Tyre, that were in thee, were thy shipmaisters. Ezekiel 27:9 The auncient and wyse men of Gebal were in thee, thy stoppers of chinkes: all shippes of the sea with their shipmen were in thee, to occupie thy marchaundise. Ezekiel 27:10 The Perses, Lydians, and Phutens were in thy armies, thy men of warre: these haged vp their shieldes & helmets in thee, these set foorth thyne honour. Ezekiel 27:11 They of Aruad were with thyne hoast round about thy walles, and the Pygmenians were thy watchmen vpon thy towres: these hanged vp their quiuers round about thy walles, they made thy beautie perfite. Ezekiel 27:12 They of Tharsis [were] thy marchauntes for the multitude of all riches, in siluer, iron, tin, and lead, whiche they brought to thy faires. Ezekiel 27:13 Iauan, Tubal, and Mesech were thy marchauntes concerning the lyues of men, and they brought vessels of brasse for thy marchaundise. Ezekiel 27:14 They of the house of Thogarma brought vnto thee at the time of thy marte, horses, coursers, and mules. Ezekiel 27:15 They of Dedan were thy marchaunts, and many iles the marchaundise of thy handes, & brought thee hornes, teeth, and Hebenus, for presentes. Ezekiel 27:16 They of Aram [were] thy marchauntes for the multitude of thy workes, and occupied in thy fayres with emeraudes, purple, broidred worke, fine linnen, coral, and pearle. Ezekiel 27:17 Iuda and the land of Israel occupied with thee, & brought vnto thy markets wheat of Minnith & Pannag, hony, oyle, and triacle. Ezekiel 27:18 Damascus also vsed marchaundise with thee, in the wine of Helbon, and whyte wooll: because thyne occupying was so great, and thy wares so many. Ezekiel 27:19 Dan, Iauan, & Meuzal haue brought vnto thy markets wrougth iron, Cassia, and Calamus were among thy marchaundise. Ezekiel 27:20 They of Dedan were thy marchauntes in precious clothes for chariots. Ezekiel 27:21 Arabia and all the princes of Cedar haue occupied with thee, in weathers, rammes, and goates: in these were they thy marchauntes. Ezekiel 27:22 The marchauntes of Seba and Rema haue occupied also with thee, in al chiefe spices, in all precious stones and golde, which they brought vnto thy markets. Ezekiel 27:23 Haran, Chenne, and Eden, the marchauntes of Seba, Assyria, and Chelmad were doers with thee: Ezekiel 27:24 These were thy marchauntes in all sortes [of thinges,] in rayment of blewe silke, and of broidred worke, and in coffers for the riche apparell, whiche were trussed with coardes, and Cedar boorde among thy marchaundise. Ezekiel 27:25 The ships of Tharsis were the chiefe of thyne occupying: thus thou wast replenished and in great worship, euen in the mids of the sea.
The great and irrevocable fall thereof.
Ezekiel 27:26 Thy rowers haue brought thee into great waters, the east wind hath broken thee in the mids of the sea. Ezekiel 27:27 Thy riches, and thy fayres, thy marchaundise, thy mariners, & shipmasters, thy calkars, and the occupiers of thy marchaundise, and al thy men of warre that are in thee, and all thy multitude that is in the mids of thee, shall fal in the mids of the sea, in the day of thy fall. Ezekiel 27:28 The suburbes shal shake at the loude crie of thy shipmen. Ezekiel 27:29 All that handle the ore, mariners, and all shipmaisters of the sea, shall come downe from their ships, and stand vpon the lande. Ezekiel 27:30 And they shall cause their voyce to be heard against thee, and shall crye bitterly, and shall cast dust vpon their heades, and wallowe in the asshes. Ezekiel 27:31 They shal make them selues bauld for thee, and girde them with sackcloth, & they shal weepe for thee, with sorowefull heart, and bitter mourning. Ezekiel 27:32 And they shall take vp a lamentation for thee in their mourning, and lament ouer thee, [what citie] is like Tyrus so destroyed in the mids of the sea? Ezekiel 27:33 When thy wares went foorth of the seas, thou filledst many people: the kinges of the earth hast thou made riche, thorowe the multitude of thy riches and marchaundise. Ezekiel 27:34 When thou shalt be broken by the seas in the deapthes of the waters, thy marchaundise & all thy multitude that was in the mids of thee, shall fall. Ezekiel 27:35 All the inhabitauntes of the iles shalbe astonied at thee, and all their kinges shalbe sore afrayde, and troubled in their countenaunce. Ezekiel 27:36 The marchauntes of the nations shall hisse at thee: thou shalt be a terrour, and shalt neuer be any more.
