Thy boordes haue they made of yuery, & of costely wood out of the Ile of Cethim. Ezekiel 27:7 Thy sayle was of dyuers colours, small nedle worke out of þe lande of Egypt, to hange vpon thy mast: & thy hanginges of yelow sylcke purple, out of þe Iles of Elisah. Ezekiel 27:8 They of Sydon & Arnad were thy maryners, and þe wysest in Tyre were thy shypmasters. Ezekiel 27:9 The eldest and wysest at Gebal were they, þt mended & stopped thy shyppes. All shyppes of the see wt theyr shypmen occupyed theyr marchaundies in þe. Ezekiel 27:10 The Perses, Lydians and phutens were in thyne host, & helped the to fyght: these hanged vp theyr shyldes & helmettes with the, these sett forth they bewty. Ezekiel 27:11 They of Arnad were with thyne hoost rounde aboute thy walles, & þe Pigmenians were thy watchmen vpon thy towres, these hanged vp theyr quivers rounde aboute thy walles, and made the maruelous goodly. Ezekiel 27:12 Tharsis occupyed with the in all maner of wares, in syluer, yron, tynne and lead, and made thy marckett greate. Ezekiel 27:13 Iauan, Tubal, and Mesech were thy marchauntes, which brought the men, and ornamentes of metall for thy occupienge. Ezekiel 27:14 They of þe house of Thogarma brought vnto the at the tyme of thy marte, horse, horsmen and mules. Ezekiel 27:15 They of Dedan were thy marchauntes: and many other Iles that occupyed with the, brought the weathers, Elephant bones & Peacockes for a present. Ezekiel 27:16 The Sirians occupied with þe, because of thy diuerse worckes, and increased thy marchaundies, with Smaragdes, with scarlet, with nedle worcke, with whyte lynen cloth, with sylcke, and with crystall. Ezekiel 27:17 Iuda and the lande of Israel occupied wt the & brought vnto thy markettes, wheat, of Minnith and pannag, balme, hony, oyle, & tryacle. Ezekiel 27:18 Damascus also vsed marchaundyes wt the, in the best wyne of Helbon & wt woll: because thy occupieng was so greate, and thy wares so many, Ezekiel 27:19 Dan, Iauan & Meusall haue brought vnto thy marckettes, yron redy made, with Cassia & Calamus, accordinge to thine occupyenge. Ezekiel 27:20 Dedan occupied with the in fayre tapestrye worcke and cusshyns. Ezekiel 27:21 Arabia & al the princes of Cedar haue occupied wt the, in shepe, wethers and goates.

The great and irrevocable fall thereof.
Ezekiel 27:26 Thy robbers shall brynge the into grett waters, þe easte winde shall ouerbeare the into þe myddest of the see: Ezekiel 27:27 so that thy wares, thy marchaundies, thy ryches, thy maryners, thy shypmasters, thy buylders of thy broken places, thy occupiers (that brought þe thynges necessary) the men of warre that are in the: yee, and all thy comens shall perysh in the myddest of the see: in þe daye of thy fall. Ezekiel 27:28 The suburbes shall shake at the loude crye of thy shypmen. Ezekiel 27:29 All whyry men, & all maryners vpon the see, shall leape out of theyr boates, & set them selues vpon þe lande. Ezekiel 27:30 They shall lyft vp theyr voyce because of the and make a lamentable cry. They shall cast dust vpon theyr heades, and lye downe in the asshes. Ezekiel 27:31 They shall shaue them selues, and put sacke cloth vpon them for thy sake. They shall mourne for the with hertfull sorow, Ezekiel 27:32 and heuy lamentacion, yee, they also shall wepe for the. Alas, what cytie hath so bene destroyed in þe see, as Tyre is? Ezekiel 27:33 When thy wares and marchaundies came from the sees, þu gauest al people ynough. The kinges of the earth hast thou made ryche, thorow the multitude of thy watres & occupieng. Ezekiel 27:34 But thou art now cast downe in to the depe of þe see, all thy resorte of people is perished with the. Ezekiel 27:35 All they that dwell in the Iles are abashed at the, & all theyr kynges are afrayed, yee, theyr faces haue chaunged couloure. Ezekiel 27:36 The marchauntes of the nacyons wondre at þe. In that thou art so cleane brought to naught, and commest nomore vp.
