Ezekiel 27:4 thy borders are in the myddest of the see, and thy buylders haue made the maruelous goodly. Ezekiel 27:5 All yi tables haue they made of Cipre trees of the mount Senir. Fro Libanus haue they take Cedre trees, to make the mastes: Ezekiel 27:6 & the Okes of Basan to make the rowers. Thy boordes haue they made of yuery, & of costly wod out of the Ile of Cethim.

The great and irrevocable fall thereof.
Ezekiel 27:26 Thy maryners were euer brynginge vnto the out of many waters. But ye easte wynde shal ouerbeare the in to the myddest off the see: Ezekiel 27:27 so yt thy wares, thy marchaudies, thy ryches, thy maryners, thy shipmasters, thy helpers, thy occupiers (that brought the thinges necessary) the men off warre that are in the: yee and all thy comons shall perish in the myddest off the see, in the daye off thy fall.

Ezekiel 27:31 They shal shaue them selues, & put sacke cloth vpon them for thy sake. They shall mourne for the with hertfull sorow, Ezekiel 27:32 and heuy lamentacion, yee their children also shall wepe for the: Alas, what cite hath so bene destroyed in the see, as Tyre is? Ezekiel 27:33 When thy wares & marchaundies came fro the sees thou gauest all people ynough. The kynges off the earth hast thou made rich, thorow the multitude off thy wares and occupienge: Ezekiel 27:34 But now art thou cast downe in to the depe of the see, all thy resorte of people is perished with the. Ezekiel 27:35 All they that dwell in the Iles are abasshed at the, and all their kynges are afrayed, yee their faces haue chaunged coloure. Ezekiel 27:36 The marchauntes of the nacions wondre at the, In that thou art so clene brought to naught, & comest nomore vp.
