The rich supply of Tyrus.
Ezekiel 27:1 The word of the Lorde came vnto me, sayinge: Ezekiel 27:2 O thou sonne of man, make a lamentable complaynte vpon Tyre, Ezekiel 27:3 and say vpon Tyre, whyche is a porte of the sea, that occupyeth with muche people and many Iles: thus speaketh the Lord God: O Tire thou hast sayde: what, I am a noble cytye: Ezekiel 27:4 thy borders are in the middest of the sea, & thy buylders haue made the maruelous goodly. Ezekiel 27:5 All thy tables haue they made of Cypre trees of the mount Sanir. From Libanus haue they taken Cedre trees, to make the mastes: Ezekiel 27:6 and the Okes of Basan to make the rowers. Thy boordes haue they made of yuery, & of costly wood out of the Ile of Cethim. Ezekiel 27:7 Thy sayle was of white small nedle worcke oute of the land of Egipte, to hang vpon thy mast & thy hanginges of yalowe sylcke purple, out of the Iles of Elisah. Ezekiel 27:8 They of Sydon and Arnah were thy mariners, and the wisest in Tyre were thy shipmaysters. Ezekiel 27:9 The eldest and wisest at Gebal were they, that mended and stopped thy shippes. All shippes of the sea with their shipmen occupied their marchaundyes in the. Ezekiel 27:10 The Perses, Lydians and Lybians were in thine host, & helped the to fight: these hanged vp their shildes & helmettes wt the, these set forth thy bewty. Ezekiel 27:11 They of Arnad were with thine host round about thy walles, and were thy watchmen vpon thy towres, these hanged vp their shildes rounde aboute thy walles, & made the maruelous goodlye. Ezekiel 27:12 Tharsis occupied wt the in all maner of wares, in siluer, yron, tinne & lead, and made thy market great. Ezekiel 27:13 Iauan, Tubal, & Mesech were thy marchauntes which brought the men, & ornamentes of metal for thy occupying. Ezekiel 27:14 They of the 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: & many other Iles that occupied with þe, brought the whethers, elephant bones and Paycockes for a present. Ezekiel 27:16 The Sirians occupied wt the, because of thy diuerse worckes, & increased thy marchaundies, with Smaragdes, with scarlet, with nedle worcke, wt white lynen cloth, with silcke and with Christall. Ezekiel 27:17 Iuda and the lande of Israel occupied with the, and brought vnto thy markettes, wheate balme, hony, oyle and triacle. Ezekiel 27:18 Damascus also vsed marchaundyes with the, in the beste wine and whyte woll, because the occupying was so greate, & thy wares so manye. Ezekiel 27:19 Dan, Iauan, and Meusall haue broughte vnto thy markettes, yron redy made, with Casia and Calamus, accordinge to thyne occupyinge. Ezekiel 27:20 Dedan occupied with the, in fayre tapestrye worcke & quishins. Ezekiel 27:21 Arabia & al the prynces of Cedar haue occupied with the, in shepe, wethers and goates. Ezekiel 27:22 The marchauntes of Seba and Rema haue occupied also with the, in al costlye spices, in all precious stones and goulde, which they broughte vnto thy markettes. Ezekiel 27:23 Haran, Chene and Eden, the marchauntes of Saba, Assiria and Chelmad, were al doers with the, Ezekiel 27:24 and occupyed with the: In costly raiment, of yalow silcke and nedle worcke (very precious, and therfore packte & bounde together with roapes) Yea and in Cedre wood, of the tyme of thy markettes. Ezekiel 27:25 The shippes of Tharsis were the chefe of thy occupyinge. Thus thou art ful, and in great worshippe euen in the middest of the sea.
The great and irrevocable fall thereof.
Ezekiel 27:26 Thy mariners were euen bringinge vnto the oute of manye waters. But the East wynde shall ouerbeare the into the myddest of the sea, Ezekiel 27:27 so that thy wares, thy marchaundies, thy riches, thy mariners, thy shipmaisters, thy helpers, thy occupiers (that brought the thinges necessarye) the men of warre that are in the: yea and all thy commens shall peryshe in the myddest of the sea, in the daye of thy fall. Ezekiel 27:28 The suburbes shall shake at the loude crye of thy shipmen. Ezekiel 27:29 All whirry men, and all maryners vpon the sea, shal leape oute of their boates, and let them selues vpon the land. Ezekiel 27:30 They shal lyft vp their voice because of the, and make a lamentable crye. They shall cast dust vpon their heades, & lye doune in the ashes. Ezekiel 27:31 They shall shaue them selues, and put sacke clothe vpon them for thy sake. They shal mourne for the with hertfull sorowe, Ezekiel 27:32 and heauy lamentacion, yea their children also shal wepe for the. Alas, what cytye hath so bene destroyed in the sea, as Tyre is? Ezekiel 27:33 When thy wares & marchaundies came from the seas, thou gauest al people ynoughe. The kinges of the earth hast thou made ryche, thorowe the multytude of thy wares and occupyinge. Ezekiel 27:34 But thou art nowe caste doune into the depe of the sea, al thy resorte of people is perished with the. Ezekiel 27:35 All they that dwell in the Iles are abashed at the, and all their kinges are afrayed, yea their faces haue chaunced colour. Ezekiel 27:36 The marchauntes of the nacions wondre at the, In that thou arte so cleane broughte to naught, and commeth no more vp.
