The great and irrevocable fall thereof.
Ezekiel 27:26 Thy robbers haue brought thee into great waters: the East winde hath broken thee in the middes of the sea. Ezekiel 27:27 Thy riches and thy faires, thy marchandise, thy mariners and pilotes, thy calkers, and the occupiers of thy marchandise & al thy men of warre that are in thee, and all thy multitude which is in the middes of thee, shall fall in the middes of the sea in the day of thy ruine. Ezekiel 27:28 The suburbes shall shake at the sound of the crie of thy pilotes. Ezekiel 27:29 And all that handle the ore, the mariners and al the pilots of the sea shal come downe from their shippes, and shall stand vpon the land, Ezekiel 27:30 And shall cause their voyce to be heard against thee, and shal cry bitterly, and shal cast dust vpon their heads, & wallow theselues in the ashes. Ezekiel 27:31 They shal plucke off their heare for thee & gird them with a sackecloth, and they shal weepe for thee with sorow of heart & bitter mourning. Ezekiel 27:32 And in their mourning, they shal take vp a lametation for thee, saying, What citie is like Tyrus, so destroied in the middes of the sea! Ezekiel 27:33 When thy wares went foorth of the seas, thou filledst many people, & thou diddest enrich the Kings of the earth with the multitude of thy riches and of thy marchandise. Ezekiel 27:34 When thou shalt be broken by ye seas in the depths of the waters, thy marchandise and all thy multitude, which was in the mids of thee, shal fal. Ezekiel 27:35 All the inhabitantes of the yles shall be astonished at thee, and all their Kings shall be sore afraide and troubled in their countenance. Ezekiel 27:36 The marchants among the people shal hisse at thee: thou shalt be a terrour, and neuer shalt be any more.
