Tyrus, for insulting against Jerusalem, is threatened.
Ezekiel 26:1 And it came to pass, in the eleventh year, on the first of the month, that the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying: Ezekiel 26:2 Son of man, Because Tyre hath said, concerning Jerusalem, Aha! She is broken, that was the doors of the peoples, She is turned unto me,I shall be filled, She is laid waste, Ezekiel 26:3 Therefore, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Behold me! against thee, O Tyre,So then I will bring up against thee many nations, As the sea bringeth up its rolling waves; Ezekiel 26:4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyre, And break down her towers, And I will scrape clean her dust from off her,And make of her the glaring face of a cliff: Ezekiel 26:5 A place for the spreading of nets, shall she become, in the midst of the sea, For, I, have spoken, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh,And she shall become a prey to the nations. Ezekiel 26:6 And, her daughters that are in the field, with the sword, shall be slain: So shall they know, that, I, am Yahweh.
The power of Nebuchadrezzar against her.
Ezekiel 26:7 For, thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, Behold me! bringing against Tyre, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon out of the North, a king of kings,with horses and with chariots and with horsemen, and a gathered host and much people. Ezekiel 26:8 Thy daughters in the fieldwith the sword, shall he slay,And shall set against thee a siege-wall, And cast up against thee an earthwork, And set up against thee a large shield; Ezekiel 26:9 And, the stroke of his attacking-engine, will he direct against thy walls,And, thy towers, will he break down, with his axes. Ezekiel 26:10 By reason of the multitude of his horses, their dust shall cover, thee,At the noise of horseman and wheel and chariot, shall thy walls tremble, when he entereth into thy gates, Just as they, do who enter a city broken open. Ezekiel 26:11 With the hoofs of his horses, shall he tread down all thy streets,Thy peoplewith the sword, shall he slay, And, thy pillars of strength, to the earth, shall go down. Ezekiel 26:12 And they shall spoil thy wealth, And make a prey of thy merchandise, And break down thy walls, And, thy pleasant, houses, shall they lay in ruins; And, thy stones and thy timber and thy dustin the midst of the waters, shall they lay. Ezekiel 26:13 And I will cause to cease the hum of thy songs; And, the sound of thy lyres, shall not be heard any more. Ezekiel 26:14 And I will make of thee the glaring face of a cliff, A place for the spreading of nets, shalt thou become, Thou shalt not be but any more,For, I, Yahweh, have spoken it, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh.
The mourning and astonishment of the sea at her fall.
Ezekiel 26:15 Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, to Tyre: Shall it not be, that, At the sound of thy fall, With the groan of thy pierced one, With the slaughter made in thy midst, The Coastlands, shall tremble? Ezekiel 26:16 Then shall come down from off their thrones, all the princes of the sea, And shall lay aside their robes, And, their embroidered garments, shall strip off,With tremblings, shall they clothe themselves, Upon the ground, shall they sit, And shall tremble every moment, and be astonished over thee. Ezekiel 26:17 Then shall they take up over thee, a dirge, And say to thee,How, hast thou perished, And ceased from the seas,The city renowned, which was strong in the sea, She and they who dwelt in her, Who imparted their terror, To all who dwelt in her. Ezekiel 26:18 Now, shall tremble, the Coastlands, In the day of thy fall,And shall shudder, the isles that are in the sea, At thine exit! Ezekiel 26:19 For, thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, When I make thee a desolate city, Like cities which cannot be dwelt in,When I bring up over thee the roaring deep, And the mighty waters cover thee, Ezekiel 26:20 Then will I bring thee down with them that go down into the pit, Unto the people of age-past times, And cause thee to dwell in the earth below, Among the desolations from age-past times, With them that go down into the pit, That thou mayest not be dwelt in,Nor yet present thyself in the land of the living. Ezekiel 26:21 A terror, will I make thee, And thou shalt not be: Though thou be sought for, Thou shalt not be found any more, To times age-abiding, Declareth My Lord, Yahweh.
