American Standard Version

Ezekiel 27

1 The word of Jehovah came again unto me, saying,

2 And thou, son of man, take up a lamentation over Tyre;

3 and say unto Tyre, O thou that dwellest at the entry of the sea, that art the merchant of the peoples unto many isles, thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Thou, O Tyre, hast said, I am perfect in beauty.

4 Thy borders are in the heart of the seas; thy builders have perfected thy beauty.

5 They have made all thy planks of fir-trees from Senir; they have taken a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for thee.

6 Of the oaks of Bashan have they made thine oars; they have made thy benches of ivory inlaid in boxwood, from the isles of Kittim.

7 Of fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was thy sail, that it might be to thee for an ensign; blue and purple from the isles of Elishah was thine awning.

8 The inhabitants of Sidon and Arvad were thy rowers: thy wise men, O Tyre, were in thee, they were thy pilots.

9 The old men of Gebal and the wise men thereof were in thee thy calkers: all the ships of the sea with their mariners were in thee to deal in thy merchandise.

10 Persia and Lud and Put were in thine army, thy men of war: they hanged the shield and helmet in thee; they set forth thy comeliness.

11 The men of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round about, and valorous men were in thy towers; they hanged their shields upon thy walls round about; they have perfected thy beauty.

12 Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all kinds of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded for thy wares.

13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy traffickers; they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass for thy merchandise.

14 They of the house of Togarmah traded for thy wares with horses and war-horses and mules.

15 The men of Dedan were thy traffickers; many isles were the mart of thy hand: they brought thee in exchange horns of ivory and ebony.

16 Syria was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of thy handiworks: they traded for thy wares with emeralds, purple, and broidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and rubies.

17 Judah, and the land of Israel, they were thy traffickers: they traded for thy merchandise wheat of Minnith, and pannag, and honey, and oil, and balm.

18 Damascus was thy merchant for the multitude of thy handiworks, by reason of the multitude of all kinds of riches, with the wine of Helbon, and white wool.

19 Vedan and Javan traded with yarn for thy wares: bright iron, cassia, and calamus, were among thy merchandise.

20 Dedan was thy trafficker in precious cloths for riding.

21 Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they were the merchants of thy hand; in lambs, and rams, and goats, in these were they thy merchants.

22 The traffickers of Sheba and Raamah, they were thy traffickers; they traded for thy wares with the chief of all spices, and with all precious stones, and gold.

23 Haran and Canneh and Eden, the traffickers of Sheba, Asshur and Chilmad, were thy traffickers.

24 These were thy traffickers in choice wares, in wrappings of blue and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel, bound with cords and made of cedar, among thy merchandise.

25 The ships of Tarshish were thy caravans for thy merchandise: and thou wast replenished, and made very glorious in the heart of the seas.

26 Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters: the east wind hath broken thee in the heart of the seas.

27 Thy riches, and thy wares, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and thy pilots, thy calkers, and the dealers in thy merchandise, and all thy men of war, that are in thee, with all thy company which is in the midst of thee, shall fall into the heart of the seas in the day of thy ruin.

28 At the sound of the cry of thy pilots the suburbs shall shake.

29 And all that handled the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots of the sea, shall come down from their ships; they shall stand upon the land,

30 and shall cause their voice to be heard over thee, and shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:

31 and they shall make themselves bald for thee, and gird them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for thee in bitterness of soul with bitter mourning.

32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and lament over thee, saying, Who is there like Tyre, like her that is brought to silence in the midst of the sea?

33 When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst many peoples; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise.

34 In the time that thou wast broken by the seas in the depths of the waters, thy merchandise and all thy company did fall in the midst of thee.

35 All the inhabitants of the isles are astonished at thee, and their kings are horribly afraid; they are troubled in their countenance.

36 The merchants among the peoples hiss at thee; thou art become a terror, and thou shalt nevermore have any being.

Ezekiel 28

1 The word of Jehovah came again unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyre, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Because thy heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art man, and not God, though thou didst set thy heart as the heart of God; --

3 behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that is hidden from thee;

4 by thy wisdom and by thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures;

5 by thy great wisdom and by thy traffic hast thou increased thy riches, and thy heart is lifted up because of thy riches; --

6 therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Because thou hast set thy heart as the heart of God,

7 therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.

8 They shall bring thee down to the pit; and thou shalt die the death of them that are slain, in the heart of the seas.

9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou art man, and not God, in the hand of him that woundeth thee.

10 Thou shalt die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord Jehovah.

11 Moreover the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

13 Thou wast in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, the topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was in thee; in the day that thou wast created they were prepared.

14 Thou wast the anointed cherub that covereth: and I set thee, so that thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till unrighteousness was found in thee.

16 By the abundance of thy traffic they filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore have I cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God; and I have destroyed thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Thy heart was lifted up because of thy beauty; thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I have cast thee to the ground; I have laid thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

18 By the multitude of thine iniquities, in the unrighteousness of thy traffic, thou hast profaned thy sanctuaries; therefore have I brought forth a fire from the midst of thee; it hath devoured thee, and I have turned thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

19 All they that know thee among the peoples shall be astonished at thee: thou art become a terror, and thou shalt nevermore have any being.

20 And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,

21 Son of man, set thy face toward Sidon, and prophesy against it,

22 and say, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against thee, O Sidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee; and they shall know that I am Jehovah, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.

23 For I will send pestilence into her, and blood into her streets; and the wounded shall fall in the midst of her, with the sword upon her on every side; and they shall know that I am Jehovah.

24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor a hurting thorn of any that are round about them, that did despite unto them; and they shall know that I am the Lord Jehovah.

25 Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the nations, then shall they dwell in their own land which I gave to my servant Jacob.

26 And they shall dwell securely therein; yea, they shall build houses, and plant vineyards, and shall dwell securely, when I have executed judgments upon all those that do them despite round about them; and they shall know that I am Jehovah their God.

Ezekiel 27

1 THE WORD of the Lord came again to me, saying,

2 Now you, son of man, take up a lamentation over Tyre,

3 And say to Tyre, O you who dwell at the entrance to the sea, who are merchant of the peoples of many islands {and} coastlands, thus says the Lord God: O Tyre, you have thought {and} said, I am perfect in beauty.

4 Your borders are in the heart of the seas; your builders have perfected your beauty.

5 They have made all your planks {and} boards of fir trees from Senir +[a peak of Mount Hermon+]; they have taken a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for you.

6 Of the oaks of Bashan they have made your oars; they have made your deck {and} benches of boxwood from the coasts of Cyprus, inlaid with ivory.

7 Of fine linen with embroidered work from Egypt was your sail, that it might be an ensign for you; blue and purple from the coasts of Elishah +[of Asia Minor+] was the +[ship's+] awning which covered you.

8 The inhabitants of Sidon and +[the island+] of Arvad were your oarsmen; your skilled {and} wise men, O Tyre, were in you; they were your pilots.

9 The old men of Gebal +[a city north of Sidon+] and its skilled {and} wise men in you were your calkers; all the ships of the sea with their mariners were in you to deal in your merchandise {and} trading.

10 Persia and Lud and Put were in your army as your men of war; they hung the shield and helmet in you; they gave you beauty {and} splendor.

11 The men of Arvad with your army were upon your walls round about and valorous men +[of Gamad+] were in your towers; they hung their shields upon your walls round about; they have perfected your beauty {and} splendor.

12 Tarshish +[in Spain+] carried on traffic with you because of the abundance of your riches of all kinds; with silver, iron, tin, and lead they traded for your wares.

13 Javan (Greece), Tubal, and Meshech +[in the mountainous region between the Black and Caspian Seas+] traded with you. They exchanged the lives of men +[taken as slaves+] and vessels of bronze for your merchandise.

14 They of the house of Togarmah (Armenia) traded for your wares with +[chariot+] horses, cavalry horses, and mules.

15 The men of Dedan +[in Arabia+] traded with you; many islands {and} coastlands were your own markets; they brought you in payment {or} as presents ivory tusks and ebony.

16 Aram (Syria or Mesopotamia) {and Edom} traded with you because of the multitude of the wares of your making. They exchanged for your merchandise emeralds, purple, embroidered work, fine linen, coral, and agate {or} rubies.

17 Judah and the land of Israel, they were your traders; they exchanged in your market wheat of Minnith +[in Ammon+], olives {or} early figs, honey, oil, and balm.

18 Damascus traded with you because of the abundance of supplies of your handiworks and the immense wealth of every kind, with wine of Helbon +[Aleppo+] and white wool +[of Sachar in Syria+].

19 Vedan also and +[Arabic+] Javan traded with yarn from Uzal +[in Arabia+] for your wares; wrought iron, cassia, and calamus were exchanged for your merchandise.

20 Dedan supplied you with precious +[saddle+] cloths for riding.

21 Arabia and all the princes of Kedar, they were the merchants in lambs, rams, and goats favored by you; in these they traded with you.

22 The merchants of Sheba and Raamah +[in Arabia+] traded with you; they exchanged for your wares the choicest of all kinds of spices and all precious stones and gold.

23 Haran and Canneh and Eden +[in Mesopotamia+], the merchants of Sheba +[on the Euphrates+], Asshur, and Chilmad +[near Bagdad+] were your traders.

24 These traded with you in choice fabrics, in bales of garments of blue and embroidered work, and in treasures of many colored rich damask {and} carpets bound with cords and made firm; in these they traded with you.

25 The ships of Tarshish were your caravans for your merchandise, and you were replenished +[Tyre+] and were heavily loaded {and} made an imposing fleet +[in your location+] in the heart of the seas.

26 Your rowers have brought you out into great {and} deep waters; the east wind has broken {and} wrecked you in the heart of the seas.

27 Your riches, your wares, your merchandise, your oarsmen and your pilots, your caulkers, your dealers in merchandise, and all your men of war who are in you, with all your company which is in your midst, sink in the heart of the seas on the day of your ruin!

28 The waves {and} the countryside shake at the +[piercing+] sound of the +[hopeless, wailing+] cry of your pilots.

29 And down from their ships come all who handle the oar. The mariners and all the pilots of the sea stand upon the shore

30 And are heard wailing loudly over you, and they cry bitterly. They cast up dust on their heads; they wallow in ashes,

31 And they make themselves +[utterly+] bald for you and gird themselves with sackcloth, and they weep over you in bitterness of heart and with bitter mourning {and} wailing.

32 And in their wailing they take up a lamentation for you and lament over you, saying, Who was ever like Tyre, the destroyed (the annihilated), +[who has become so still+] in the heart of the sea?

33 When your wares came forth from the seas, you met the desire, the demand, {and} the necessities of many people; you enriched the kings of the earth with your abundant wealth and merchandise.

34 Now you are shattered by the seas in the depths of the waters; your merchandise and all your crew have gone down with you.

35 All the inhabitants of the isles {and} coastlands are astonished {and} appalled at you, and their kings are horribly frightened {and} shudder greatly; their faces quiver.

36 The merchants among the people hiss over you +[with malicious joy+]; you have become a horror {and} a source of terrors. You shall be no more +[forever+].

Ezekiel 28

1 THE WORD of the Lord came again to me, saying,

2 Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord God: Because your heart is lifted up and you have said {and} thought, I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods, in the heart of the seas; yet you are only man +[weak, feeble, made of earth+] and not God, though you imagine yourself to be almost more than mortal with your mind as the mind of God;

3 Indeed, you are +[imagining yourself+] wiser than Daniel; there is no secret +[you think+] that is hidden from you;

4 With your own wisdom and with your own understanding you have gotten you riches {and} power and have brought gold and silver into your treasuries;

5 By your great wisdom and by your traffic you have increased your riches {and} power, and your heart is proud {and} lifted up because of your wealth;

6 Therefore thus says the Lord God: Because you have imagined your mind as the mind of God +[having thoughts and purposes suitable only to God Himself+],

7 Behold therefore, I am bringing strangers upon you, the most terrible of the nations, and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom +[O Tyre+], and they shall defile your splendor.

8 They shall bring you down to the pit +[of destruction+] and you shall die the +[many+] deaths of all the Tyrians that are slain in the heart of the seas.

9 Will you still say, I am a god, before him who slays you? But you are only a man +[made of earth+] and no god in the hand of him who wounds {and} profanes you.

10 You shall die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers, for I have spoken it, says the Lord God.

11 Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre and say to him, Thus says the Lord God: You are the full measure {and} pattern of exactness +[giving the finishing touch to all that constitutes completeness+], full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, the carnelian, topaz, jasper, chrysolite, beryl, onyx, sapphire, carbuncle, and emerald; and your settings and your sockets {and} engravings were wrought in gold. On the day that you were created they were prepared.

14 You were the anointed cherub that covers with overshadowing +[wings+], and I set you so. You were upon the holy mountain of God; you walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire +[like the paved work of gleaming sapphire stone upon which the God of Israel walked on Mount Sinai+].

15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created until iniquity {and} guilt were found in you.

16 Through the abundance of your commerce you were filled with lawlessness {and} violence, and you sinned; therefore I cast you out as a profane thing from the mountain of God and the guardian cherub drove you out from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Your heart was proud {and} lifted up because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I lay you before kings, that they might gaze at you.

18 You have profaned your sanctuaries by the multitude of your iniquities {and} the enormity of your guilt, by the unrighteousness of your trade. Therefore I have brought forth a fire from your midst; it has consumed you, and I have reduced you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all who looked at you.

19 All who know you among the people are astonished and appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and shall never return to being.

20 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

21 Son of man, set your face toward Sidon and prophesy against her.

22 And say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Sidon, and I will show forth My glory {and} be glorified in the midst of you. And they shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord when I execute judgments {and} punishments in her, and am set apart {and} separated {and} My holiness is manifested in her.

23 For I will send pestilence into her and blood into her streets, and the wounded shall be judged {and} fall by the sword in the midst of her on every side, and they shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord +[the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service+].

24 And there shall be no more a brier to prick the house of Israel or a hurting thorn of all those around them who have treated them with contempt, and they shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord God +[the Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service+].

25 Thus says the Lord God: When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and I shall be set apart {and} separated {and} My holiness made apparent in them in the sight of the nations, then shall they dwell in their own land which I gave to My servant Jacob.

26 And they shall dwell safely in it and shall build houses and plant vineyards; yes, they shall dwell securely {and} with confidence when I have executed judgments {and} punishments upon all those round about them who have despised {and} trodden upon them {and} pushed them away, and they shall know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord their God +[their Sovereign Ruler, Who calls forth loyalty and obedient service+].

Ezekiel 27

1 The word of the Lord came to me again, saying,

2 And you, son of man, make a song of grief for Tyre;

3 And say to Tyre, O you who are seated at the doorway of the sea, trading for the peoples with the great sea-lands, these are the words of the Lord: You, O Tyre, have said, I am a ship completely beautiful.

4 Your builders have made your outlines in the heart of the seas, they have made you completely beautiful.

5 They have made all your boards of fir-trees from Senir: they have taken cedars from Lebanon to make the supports for your sails.

6 Of oak-trees from Bashan they have made your driving blades; they have made your floors of ivory and boxwood from the sea-lands of Kittim.

7 The best linen with needlework from Egypt was your sail, stretched out to be a flag for you; blue and purple from the sea-lands of Elishah gave you shade.

8 The people of Zidon and Arvad were your boatmen; the wise men of Zemer were in you; they were guiding your ships;

9 The responsible men of Gebal and its wise men were in you, making your boards watertight: all the ships of the sea with their seamen were in you trading in your goods.

10 Cush and Lud and Put were in your army, your men of war, hanging up their body-covers and head-dresses of war in you: they gave you your glory.

11 The men of Arvad in your army were on your walls, and were watchmen in your towers, hanging up their arms on your walls round about; they made you completely beautiful.

12 Tarshish did business with you because of the great amount of your wealth; they gave silver, iron, tin, and lead for your goods.

13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech were your traders; they gave living men and brass vessels for your goods.

14 The people of Togarmah gave horses and war-horses and transport beasts for your goods.

15 The men of Rodan were your traders: a great number of sea-lands did business with you: they gave you horns of ivory and ebony as an offering.

16 Edom did business with you because of the great number of things which you made; they gave emeralds, purple, and needlework, and the best linen and coral and rubies for your goods.

17 Judah and the land of Israel were your traders; they gave grain of Minnith and sweet cakes and honey and oil and perfume for your goods.

18 Damascus did business with you because of the great amount of your wealth, with wine of Helbon and white wool.

19 ... for your goods: they gave polished iron and spices for your goods.

20 Dedan did trade with you in cloths for the backs of horses.

21 Arabia and all the rulers of Kedar did business with you; in lambs and sheep and goats, in these they did business with you.

22 The traders of Sheba and Raamah did trade with you; they gave the best of all sorts of spices and all sorts of stones of great price and gold for your goods.

23 Haran and Canneh and Eden, the traders of Asshur and all the Medes:

24 These were your traders in beautiful robes, in rolls of blue and needlework, and in chests of coloured cloth, corded with cords and made of cedar-wood, in them they did trade with you.

25 Tarshish ships did business for you in your goods: and you were made full, and great was your glory in the heart of the seas.

26 Your boatmen have taken you into great waters: you have been broken by the east wind in the heart of the seas.

27 Your wealth and your goods, the things in which you do trade, your seamen and those guiding your ships, those who make your boards watertight, and those who do business with your goods, and all your men of war who are in you, with all who have come together in you, will go down into the heart of the seas in the day of your downfall.

28 At the sound of the cry of your ships' guides, the boards of the ship will be shaking.

29 And all the boatmen, the seamen and those who are expert at guiding a ship through the sea, will come down from their ships and take their places on the land;

30 And their voices will be sounding over you, and crying bitterly they will put dust on their heads, rolling themselves in the dust:

31 And they will have the hair of their heads cut off because of you, and will put haircloth on their bodies, weeping for you with bitter grief in their souls, even with bitter sorrow.

32 And in their weeping they will make a song of grief for you, sorrowing over you and saying, Who is like Tyre, who has come to an end in the deep sea?

33 When your goods went out over the seas, you made numbers of peoples full; the wealth of the kings of the earth was increased with your great wealth and all your goods.

34 Now that you are broken by the seas in the deep waters, your goods and all your people will go down with you.

35 All the people of the sea-lands are overcome with wonder at you, and their kings are full of fear, their faces are troubled.

36 Those who do business among the peoples make sounds of surprise at you; you have become a thing of fear, you have come to an end for ever.

Ezekiel 28

1 The word of the Lord came to me again, saying,

2 Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, This is what the Lord has said: Because your heart has been lifted up, and you have said, I am a god, I am seated on the seat of God in the heart of the seas; but you are man and not God, though you have made your heart as the heart of God:

3 See, you are wiser than Daniel; there is no secret which is deeper than your knowledge:

4 By your wisdom and deep knowledge you have got power for yourself, and put silver and gold in your store-houses:

5 By your great wisdom and by your trade your power is increased, and your heart is lifted up because of your power:

6 For this cause the Lord has said: Because you have made your heart as the heart of God,

7 See, I am sending against you strange men, feared among the nations: they will let loose their swords against your bright wisdom, they will make your glory a common thing.

8 They will send you down to the underworld, and your death will be the death of those who are put to the sword in the heart of the seas.

9 Will you say, in the face of those who are taking your life, I am God? but you are man and not God in the hands of those who are wounding you.

10 Your death will be the death of those who are without circumcision, by the hands of men from strange lands: for I have said it, says the Lord.

11 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

12 Son of man, make a song of grief for the king of Tyre, and say to him, This is what the Lord has said: You are all-wise and completely beautiful;

13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every stone of great price was your clothing, the sardius, the topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the emerald and the carbuncle: your store-houses were full of gold, and things of great price were in you; in the day when you were made they were got ready.

14 I gave you your place with the winged one; I put you on the mountain of God; you went up and down among the stones of fire.

15 There has been no evil in your ways from the day when you were made, till sin was seen in you.

16 Through all your trading you have become full of violent ways, and have done evil: so I sent you out shamed from the mountain of God; the winged one put an end to you from among the stones of fire.

17 Your heart was lifted up because you were beautiful, you made your wisdom evil through your sin: I have sent you down, even to the earth; I have made you low before kings, so that they may see you.

18 By all your sin, even by your evil trading, you have made your holy places unclean; so I will make a fire come out from you, it will make a meal of you, and I will make you as dust on the earth before the eyes of all who see you.

19 All who have knowledge of you among the peoples will be overcome with wonder at you: you have become a thing of fear, and you will never be seen again.

20 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

21 Son of man, let your face be turned to Zidon, and be a prophet against it, and say,

22 These are the words of the Lord: See, I am against you, O Zidon; and I will get glory for myself in you: and they will be certain that I am the Lord, when I send my punishments on her, and I will be seen to be holy in her.

23 And I will send on her disease and blood in her streets; and the wounded will be falling in the middle of her, and the sword will be against her on every side; and they will be certain that I am the Lord.

24 And there will no longer be a plant with sharp points wounding the children of Israel, or a thorn troubling them among any who are round about them, who put shame on them; and they will be certain that I am the Lord.

25 This is what the Lord has said: When I have got together the children of Israel from the peoples among whom they are wandering, and have been made holy among them before the eyes of the nations, then they will have rest in the land which is theirs, which I gave to my servant Jacob

26 And they will be safe there, building houses and planting vine-gardens and living without fear; when I have sent my punishments on all those who put shame on them round about them; and they will be certain that I am the Lord their God.

Ezekiel 27

1 And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying:

2 And thou, son of man, take up a lamentation for Tyre,

3 and say unto Tyre: O thou that art situate at the entries of the sea, and traffickest with the peoples in many isles, thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Thou, Tyre, hast said, I am perfect in beauty.

4 Thy borders are in the heart of the seas, thy builders have perfected thy beauty.

5 They made all thy double boards of cypress-trees of Senir; they took cedars from Lebanon to make masts for thee.

6 Of the oaks of Bashan did they make thine oars; they made thy benches of ivory, inlaid in box-wood, out of the isles of Chittim.

7 Byssus with broidered work from Egypt was thy sail, to serve thee for a banner; blue and purple from the isles of Elishah was thine awning.

8 The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were thy rowers; thy wise men, O Tyre, who were in thee, were thy pilots.

9 The elders of Gebal and the wise men thereof were in thee repairing thy leaks; all the ships of the sea with their mariners were in thee, to barter with thee.

10 Persia and Lud and Phut were in thine army, thy men of war: they hanged shield and helmet in thee; they gave splendour to thee.

11 The children of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round about, and the Gammadim were on thy towers: they hanged their shields upon thy walls round about; they made thy beauty perfect.

12 Tarshish dealt with thee by reason of the abundance of all substance; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they furnished thy markets.

13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy traffickers: they bartered with thee the persons of men, and vessels of bronze.

14 They of the house of Togarmah furnished thy markets with horses, and horsemen, and mules.

15 The children of Dedan were thy traffickers; many isles were the mart of thy hand: they rendered in payment horns of ivory, and ebony.

16 Syria dealt with thee for the multitude of thy handiworks: they traded in thy markets with carbuncles, purple, and broidered work, and fine linen, and corals, and rubies.

17 Judah and the land of Israel were thy traffickers: they bartered with thee wheat of Minnith, and sweet cakes, and honey, and oil, and balm.

18 Damascus dealt with thee because of the multitude of thy handiworks, by reason of the abundance of all substance, with wine of Helbon, and white wool.

19 Vedan and Javan of Uzal traded in thy markets: wrought iron, cassia, and calamus were in thy traffic.

20 Dedan was thy trafficker in precious riding-cloths.

21 Arabia and all the princes of Kedar were the merchants of thy hand: in lambs, and rams, and goats, in these did they trade with thee.

22 The merchants of Sheba and Raamah were thy traffickers: they furnished thy markets with all the choice spices, and with all precious stones and gold.

23 Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Asshur, and Chilmad traded with thee:

24 these traded with thee in sumptuous clothes, in wrappings of blue and broidered work, and in chests full of variegated stuffs, bound with cords and made of cedar-wood, amongst thy merchandise.

25 The ships of Tarshish were thy caravans for thy traffic; and thou wast replenished, and highly honoured, in the heart of the seas.

26 Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters; the east wind hath broken thee in the heart of the seas.

27 Thy substance, and thy markets, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and thy pilots, they that repair thy leaks, and they that barter with thee, and all thy men of war that are in thee, along with all thine assemblage which is in the midst of thee, shall fall into the heart of the seas in the day of thy fall.

28 The open places shall shake at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.

29 And all that handle the oar, the mariners, all the pilots of the sea, shall come down from their ships; they shall stand upon the land,

30 and shall cause their voice to be heard over thee, and shall cry bitterly; and they shall cast up dust upon their heads; they shall wallow themselves in ashes.

31 And they shall make themselves utterly bald for thee, and gird themselves with sackcloth; and they shall weep for thee in bitterness of soul with bitter mourning.

32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and lament over thee, [saying,] Who is like Tyre, like her that is destroyed in the midst of the sea?

33 When thy wares went forth over the seas, thou filledst many peoples; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the abundance of thy substance and of thy merchandise.

34 In the time [when] thou art broken by the seas, in the depths of the waters, thy merchandise and all thine assemblage in the midst of thee have fallen.

35 All the inhabitants of the isles are amazed at thee, and their kings are horribly afraid, [their] countenance is troubled.

36 The merchants among the peoples hiss at thee; thou art become a terror, and thou shalt never be any more.

Ezekiel 28

1 And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyre, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Because thy heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a �god, I sit [in] the seat of God, in the heart of the seas, (and thou art a man, and not �God,) and thou settest thy heart as the heart of God:

3 behold, thou art wiser than Daniel! nothing secret is obscure for thee;

4 by thy wisdom and by thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures;

5 by thy great wisdom thou hast by thy traffic increased thy riches, and thy heart is lifted up because of thy riches.

6 Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Because thou hast set thy heart as the heart of God,

7 therefore behold, I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall tarnish thy brightness.

8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of those that are slain in the heart of the seas.

9 Wilt thou then say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and not �God, in the hand of him that pierceth thee.

10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised, by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord Jehovah.

11 And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyre, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Thou, who sealest up the measure of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty,

13 thou wast in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was thy covering: the sardius, the topaz, and the diamond, the chrysolite, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the carbuncle, and the emerald, and gold. The workmanship of thy tambours and of thy pipes was in thee: in the day that thou wast created were they prepared.

14 Thou wast the anointed covering cherub, and I had set thee [so]: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou didst walk up and down in the midst of stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways, from the day that thou wast created, till unrighteousness was found in thee.

16 By the abundance of thy traffic they filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned; therefore have I cast thee as profane from the mountain of God, and have destroyed thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Thy heart was lifted up because of thy beauty; thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I have cast thee to the ground, I have laid thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

18 By the multitude of thine iniquities, by the unrighteousness of thy traffic, thou hast profaned thy sanctuaries: and I have brought forth a fire out of the midst of thee -- it hath consumed thee; and I have brought thee to ashes upon the earth, in the sight of all them that behold thee.

19 All they that know thee among the peoples shall be amazed at thee: thou art become a terror, and thou shalt never be any more.

20 And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,

21 Son of man, set thy face towards Zidon, and prophesy against it,

22 and say, Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, I am against thee, Zidon, and I will be glorified in the midst of thee; and they shall know that I [am] Jehovah, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be hallowed in her.

23 And I will send into her the pestilence, and blood in her streets; and the wounded shall fall in the midst of her, by the sword upon her on every side: and they shall know that I [am] Jehovah.

24 And there shall be no more a wounding sting for the house of Israel, nor any grieving thorn, among all that were round about them, that despised them: and they shall know that I [am] the Lord Jehovah.

25 Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and shall be hallowed in them in the sight of the nations, then shall they dwell in their land which I have given to my servant Jacob.

26 They shall dwell in it in safety, and shall build houses and plant vineyards; and they shall dwell in safety, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despised them round about them: and they shall know that I [am] Jehovah their God.

Ezekiel 27

1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

2 Now, thou son of man, take up a lamentation for Tyrus;

3 And say unto Tyrus, O thou that art situate at the entry of the sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles, Thus saith the Lord GOD; O Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of perfect beauty.

4 Thy borders are in the midst of the seas, thy builders have perfected thy beauty.

5 They have made all thy ship boards of fir trees of Senir: they have taken cedars from Lebanon to make masts for thee.

6 Of the oaks of Bashan have they made thine oars; the company of the Ashurites have made thy benches of ivory, brought out of the isles of Chittim.

7 Fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was that which thou spreadest forth to be thy sail; blue and purple from the isles of Elishah was that which covered thee.

8 The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were thy mariners: thy wise men, O Tyrus, that were in thee, were thy pilots.

9 The ancients of Gebal and the wise men thereof were in thee thy calkers: all the ships of the sea with their mariners were in thee to occupy thy merchandise.

10 They of Persia and of Lud and of Phut were in thine army, thy men of war: they hanged the shield and helmet in thee; they set forth thy comeliness.

11 The men of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round about, and the Gammadims were in thy towers: they hanged their shields upon thy walls round about; they have made thy beauty perfect.

12 Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded in thy fairs.

13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy merchants: they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.

14 They of the house of Togarmah traded in thy fairs with horses and horsemen and mules.

15 The men of Dedan were thy merchants; many isles were the merchandise of thine hand: they brought thee for a present horns of ivory and ebony.

16 Syria was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of the wares of thy making: they occupied in thy fairs with emeralds, purple, and broidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and agate.

17 Judah, and the land of Israel, they were thy merchants: they traded in thy market wheat of Minnith, and Pannag, and honey, and oil, and balm.

18 Damascus was thy merchant in the multitude of the wares of thy making, for the multitude of all riches; in the wine of Helbon, and white wool.

19 Dan also and Javan going to and fro occupied in thy fairs: bright iron, cassia, and calamus, were in thy market.

20 Dedan was thy merchant in precious clothes for chariots.

21 Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they occupied with thee in lambs, and rams, and goats: in these were they thy merchants.

22 The merchants of Sheba and Raamah, they were thy merchants: they occupied in thy fairs with chief of all spices, and with all precious stones, and gold.

23 Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Asshur, and Chilmad, were thy merchants.

24 These were thy merchants in all sorts of things, in blue clothes, and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel, bound with cords, and made of cedar, among thy merchandise.

25 The ships of Tarshish did sing of thee in thy market: and thou wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the seas.

26 Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters: the east wind hath broken thee in the midst of the seas.

27 Thy riches, and thy fairs, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and thy pilots, thy calkers, and the occupiers of thy merchandise, and all thy men of war, that are in thee, and in all thy company which is in the midst of thee, shall fall into the midst of the seas in the day of thy ruin.

28 The suburbs shall shake at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.

29 And all that handle the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots of the sea, shall come down from their ships, they shall stand upon the land;

30 And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:

31 And they shall make themselves utterly bald for thee, and gird them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for thee with bitterness of heart and bitter wailing.

32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and lament over thee, saying, What city is like Tyrus, like the destroyed in the midst of the sea?

33 When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst many people; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise.

34 In the time when thou shalt be broken by the seas in the depths of the waters thy merchandise and all thy company in the midst of thee shall fall.

35 All the inhabitants of the isles shall be astonished at thee, and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be troubled in their countenance.

36 The merchants among the people shall hiss at thee; thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt be any more.

Ezekiel 28

1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:

3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:

4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:

5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:

6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;

7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.

8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.

9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.

10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.

11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.

14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

20 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

21 Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against it,

22 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee: and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.

23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon her on every side; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised them; and they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

25 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob.

26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses, and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.

Ezekiel 27

1 Moreover, the word of the LORD came to me saying,

2 ``And you, son of man, take up a lamentation over Tyre;

3 and say to Tyre, who dwells at the entrance to the sea, merchant of the peoples to many coastlands, `Thus says the Lord GOD, ``O Tyre, you have said, `I am perfect in beauty.'

4 ``Your borders are in the heart of the seas; Your builders have perfected your beauty.

5 ``They have made all {your} planks of fir trees from Senir; They have taken a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for you.

6 ``Of oaks from Bashan they have made your oars; With ivory they have inlaid your deck of boxwood from the coastlands of Cyprus.

7 ``Your sail was of fine embroidered linen from Egypt So that it became your distinguishing mark; Your awning was blue and purple from the coastlands of Elishah.

8 ``The inhabitants of Sidon and Arvad were your rowers; Your wise men, O Tyre, were aboard; they were your pilots.

9 ``The elders of Gebal and her wise men were with you repairing your seams; All the ships of the sea and their sailors were with you in order to deal in your merchandise.

10 ``Persia and Lud and Put were in your army, your men of war. They hung shield and helmet in you; they set forth your splendor.

11 ``The sons of Arvad and your army were on your walls, {all} around, and the Gammadim were in your towers. They hung their shields on your walls, {all} around; they perfected your beauty.

12 ``Tarshish was your customer because of the abundance of all {kinds} of wealth; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they paid for your wares.

13 ``Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were your traders; with the lives of men and vessels of bronze they paid for your merchandise.

14 ``Those from Beth-togarmah gave horses and war horses and mules for your wares.

15 ``The sons of Dedan were your traders. Many coastlands were your market; ivory tusks and ebony they brought as your payment.

16 ``Aram was your customer because of the abundance of your goods; they paid for your wares with emeralds, purple, embroidered work, fine linen, coral, and rubies.

17 ``Judah and the land of Israel, they were your traders; with the wheat of Minnith, cakes, honey, oil, and balm they paid for your merchandise.

18 ``Damascus was your customer because of the abundance of your goods, because of the abundance of all {kinds} of wealth, because of the wine of Helbon and white wool.

19 ``Vedan and Javan paid for your wares from Uzal; wrought iron, cassia, and sweet cane were among your merchandise.

20 ``Dedan traded with you in saddlecloths for riding.

21 ``Arabia and all the princes of Kedar, they were your customers for lambs, rams, and goats; for these they were your customers.

22 ``The traders of Sheba and Raamah, they traded with you; they paid for your wares with the best of all {kinds} of spices, and with all {kinds} of precious stones, and gold.

23 ``Haran, Canneh, Eden, the traders of Sheba, Asshur, {and} Chilmad traded with you.

24 ``They traded with you in choice garments, in clothes of blue and embroidered work, and in carpets of many colors, {and} tightly wound cords, {which were} among your merchandise.

25 ``The ships of Tarshish were the carriers for your merchandise. And you were filled and were very glorious In the heart of the seas.

26 ``Your rowers have brought you Into great waters; The east wind has broken you In the heart of the seas.

27 ``Your wealth, your wares, your merchandise, Your sailors, and your pilots, Your repairers of seams, your dealers in merchandise, And all your men of war who are in you, With all your company that is in your midst, Will fall into the heart of the seas On the day of your overthrow.

28 ``At the sound of the cry of your pilots The pasture lands will shake.

29 ``And all who handle the oar, The sailors, {and} all the pilots of the sea Will come down from their ships; They will stand on the land,

30 And they will make their voice heard over you And will cry bitterly. They will cast dust on their heads, They will wallow in ashes.

31 ``Also they will make themselves bald for you And gird themselves with sackcloth; And they will weep for you in bitterness of soul With bitter mourning.

32 ``Moreover, in their wailing they will take up a lamentation for you And lament over you: `Who is like Tyre, Like her who is silent in the midst of the sea?

33 `When your wares went out from the seas, You satisfied many peoples; With the abundance of your wealth and your merchandise You enriched the kings of earth.

34 `Now that you are broken by the seas In the depths of the waters, Your merchandise and all your company Have fallen in the midst of you.

35 `All the inhabitants of the coastlands Are appalled at you, And their kings are horribly afraid; They are troubled in countenance.

36 `The merchants among the peoples hiss at you; You have become terrified, And you will be no more.'"'"

Ezekiel 28

1 The word of the LORD came again to me saying,

2 ``Son of man, say to the leader of Tyre, `Thus says the Lord GOD, ``Because your heart is lifted up And you have said, `I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods, In the heart of the seas'; Yet you are a man and not God, Although you make your heart like the heart of God--

3 Behold, you are wiser than Daniel; There is no secret that is a match for you.

4 ``By your wisdom and understanding You have acquired riches for yourself, And have acquired gold and silver for your treasuries.

5 ``By your great wisdom, by your trade You have increased your riches, And your heart is lifted up because of your riches--

6 Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, `Because you have made your heart Like the heart of God,

7 Therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon you, The most ruthless of the nations. And they will draw their swords Against the beauty of your wisdom And defile your splendor.

8 `They will bring you down to the pit, And you will die the death of those who are slain In the heart of the seas.

9 `Will you still say, ``I am a god," In the presence of your slayer, Although you are a man and not God, In the hands of those who wound you?

10 `You will die the death of the uncircumcised By the hand of strangers, For I have spoken!' declares the Lord GOD!"'"

11 Again the word of the LORD came to me saying,

12 ``Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, `Thus says the Lord GOD, ``You had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

13 ``You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your covering: The ruby, the topaz, and the diamond; The beryl, the onyx, and the jasper; The lapis lazuli, the turquoise, and the emerald; And the gold, the workmanship of your settings and sockets, Was in you. On the day that you were created They were prepared.

14 ``You were the anointed cherub who covers, And I placed you {there.} You were on the holy mountain of God; You walked in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 ``You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created, Until unrighteousness was found in you.

16 ``By the abundance of your trade You were internally filled with violence, And you sinned; Therefore I have cast you as profane From the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the stones of fire.

17 ``Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I put you before kings, That they may see you.

18 ``By the multitude of your iniquities, In the unrighteousness of your trade, You profaned your sanctuaries. Therefore I have brought fire from the midst of you; It has consumed you, And I have turned you to ashes on the earth In the eyes of all who see you.

19 ``All who know you among the peoples Are appalled at you; You have become terrified, And you will be no more."'"

20 And the word of the LORD came to me saying,

21 ``Son of man, set your face toward Sidon, prophesy against her,

22 and say, `Thus says the Lord GOD, ``Behold, I am against you, O Sidon, And I shall be glorified in your midst. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I execute judgments in her, And I shall manifest My holiness in her.

23 ``For I shall send pestilence to her And blood to her streets, And the wounded will fall in her midst By the sword upon her on every side; Then they will know that I am the LORD.

24 ``And there will be no more for the house of Israel a prickling brier or a painful thorn from any round about them who scorned them; then they will know that I am the Lord GOD."

25 `Thus says the Lord GOD, ``When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and shall manifest My holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they will live in their land which I gave to My servant Jacob.

26 ``And they will live in it securely; and they will build houses, plant vineyards, and live securely, when I execute judgments upon all who scorn them round about them. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God."'"

Ezekiel 27

1 The word of the LORD came to me:

2 “You, son of man, sing a lament for Tyre.

3 Say to Tyre, who sits at the entrance of the sea, merchant to the peoples on many coasts, ‘This is what the sovereign LORD says: “‘O Tyre, you have said, “I am perfectly beautiful.”

4 Your borders are in the heart of the seas; your builders have perfected your beauty.

5 They crafted all your planks out of fir trees from Senir; they took a cedar from Lebanon to make your mast.

6 They made your oars from oaks of Bashan; they made your deck with cypresses from the Kittean isles.

7 Fine linen from Egypt, woven with patterns, was used for your sail to serve as your banner; blue and purple from the coastlands of Elishah was used for your deck’s awning.

8 The leaders of Sidon and Arvad were your rowers; your skilled men, O Tyre, were your captains.

9 The elders of Gebal and her skilled men were within you, mending cracks; all the ships of the sea and their mariners were within you to trade for your merchandise.

10 Men of Persia, Lud, and Put were in your army, men of war. They hung shield and helmet on you; they gave you your splendor.

11 The Arvadites joined your army on your walls all around, and the Gammadites were in your towers. They hung their quivers on your walls all around; they perfected your beauty.

12 “‘Tarshish was your trade partner because of your abundant wealth; they exchanged silver, iron, tin, and lead for your products.

13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech were your clients; they exchanged slaves and bronze items for your merchandise.

14 Beth Togarmah exchanged horses, chargers, and mules for your products.

15 The Dedanites were your clients. Many coastlands were your customers; they paid you with ivory tusks and ebony.

16 Edom was your trade partner because of the abundance of your goods; they exchanged turquoise, purple, embroidered work, fine linen, coral, and rubies for your products.

17 Judah and the land of Israel were your clients; they traded wheat from Minnith, millet, honey, olive oil, and balm for your merchandise.

18 Damascus was your trade partner because of the abundance of your goods and of all your wealth: wine from Helbon, white wool from Zahar,

19 and casks of wine from Izal they exchanged for your products. Wrought iron, cassia, and sweet cane were among your merchandise.

20 Dedan was your client in saddlecloths for riding.

21 Arabia and all the princes of Kedar were your trade partners; for lambs, rams, and goats they traded with you.

22 The merchants of Sheba and Raamah engaged in trade with you; they traded the best kinds of spices along with precious stones and gold for your products.

23 Haran, Kanneh, Eden, merchants from Sheba, Asshur, and Kilmad were your clients.

24 They traded with you choice garments, purple clothes and embroidered work, and multicolored carpets, bound and reinforced with cords; these were among your merchandise.

25 The ships of Tarshish were the transports for your merchandise. “‘So you were filled and weighed down in the heart of the seas.

26 Your rowers have brought you into surging waters. The east wind has wrecked you in the heart of the seas.

27 Your wealth, products, and merchandise, your sailors and captains, your ship’s carpenters, your merchants, and all your fighting men within you, along with all your crew who are in you, will fall into the heart of the seas on the day of your downfall.

28 At the sound of your captains’ cry the waves will surge;

29 They will descend from their ships – all who handle the oar, the sailors and all the sea captains – they will stand on the land.

30 They will lament loudly over you and cry bitterly. They will throw dust on their heads and roll in the ashes;

31 they will tear out their hair because of you and put on sackcloth, and they will weep bitterly over you with intense mourning.

32 As they wail they will lament over you, chanting: “Who was like Tyre, like a tower in the midst of the sea?”

33 When your products went out from the seas, you satisfied many peoples; with the abundance of your wealth and merchandise you enriched the kings of the earth.

34 Now you are wrecked by the seas, in the depths of the waters; your merchandise and all your company have sunk along with you.

35 All the inhabitants of the coastlands are shocked at you, and their kings are horribly afraid – their faces are troubled.

36 The traders among the peoples hiss at you; you have become a horror, and will be no more.’”

1 The word of the LORD came to me:

2 “Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, ‘This is what the sovereign LORD says: “‘Your heart is proud and you said, “I am a god; I sit in the seat of gods, in the heart of the seas” – yet you are a man and not a god, though you think you are godlike.

3 Look, you are wiser than Daniel; no secret is hidden from you.

4 By your wisdom and understanding you have gained wealth for yourself; you have amassed gold and silver in your treasuries.

5 By your great skill in trade you have increased your wealth, and your heart is proud because of your wealth.

6 “‘Therefore this is what the sovereign LORD says: Because you think you are godlike,

7 I am about to bring foreigners against you, the most terrifying of nations. They will draw their swords against the grandeur made by your wisdom, and they will defile your splendor.

8 They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die violently in the heart of the seas.

9 Will you still say, “I am a god,” before the one who kills you – though you are a man and not a god – when you are in the power of those who wound you?

10 You will die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of foreigners; for I have spoken, declares the sovereign LORD.’”

11 The word of the LORD came to me:

12 “Son of man, sing a lament for the king of Tyre, and say to him, ‘This is what the sovereign LORD says: “‘You were the sealer of perfection, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

13 You were in Eden, the garden of God. Every precious stone was your covering, the ruby, topaz, and emerald, the chrysolite, onyx, and jasper, the sapphire, turquoise, and beryl; your settings and mounts were made of gold. On the day you were created they were prepared.

14 I placed you there with an anointed guardian cherub; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked about amidst fiery stones.

15 You were blameless in your behavior from the day you were created, until sin was discovered in you.

16 In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned; so I defiled you and banished you from the mountain of God – the guardian cherub expelled you from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom on account of your splendor. I threw you down to the ground; I placed you before kings, that they might see you.

18 By the multitude of your iniquities, through the sinfulness of your trade, you desecrated your sanctuaries. So I drew fire out from within you; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes on the earth before the eyes of all who saw you.

19 All who know you among the peoples are shocked at you; you have become terrified and will be no more.’”

20 The word of the LORD came to me:

21 “Son of man, turn toward Sidon and prophesy against it.

22 Say, ‘This is what the sovereign LORD says: “‘Look, I am against you, Sidon, and I will magnify myself in your midst. Then they will know that I am the LORD when I execute judgments on her and reveal my sovereign power in her.

23 I will send a plague into the city and bloodshed into its streets; the slain will fall within it, by the sword that attacks it from every side. Then they will know that I am the LORD.

24 “‘No longer will Israel suffer from the sharp briers or painful thorns of all who surround and scorn them. Then they will know that I am the sovereign LORD.

25 “‘This is what the sovereign LORD says: When I regather the house of Israel from the peoples where they are dispersed, I will reveal my sovereign power over them in the sight of the nations, and they will live in their land that I gave to my servant Jacob.

26 They will live securely in it; they will build houses and plant vineyards. They will live securely when I execute my judgments on all those who scorn them and surround them. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God.’”

1 The word of the LORD came to me:

3 Say to Tyre, situated at the gateway to the sea, merchant of peoples on many coasts, `This is what the Sovereign LORD says: "`You say, O Tyre, "I am perfect in beauty."

4 Your domain was on the high seas; your builders brought your beauty to perfection.

5 They made all your timbers of pine trees from Senir ; they took a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for you.

6 Of oaks from Bashan they made your oars; of cypress wood from the coasts of Cyprus they made your deck, inlaid with ivory.

7 Fine embroidered linen from Egypt was your sail and served as your banner; your awnings were of blue and purple from the coasts of Elishah.

8 Men of Sidon and Arvad were your oarsmen; your skilled men, O Tyre, were aboard as your seamen.

9 Veteran craftsmen of Gebal were on board as shipwrights to caulk your seams. All the ships of the sea and their sailors came alongside to trade for your wares.

10 "`Men of Persia, Lydia and Put served as soldiers in your army. They hung their shields and helmets on your walls, bringing you splendor.

11 Men of Arvad and Helech manned your walls on every side; men of Gammad were in your towers. They hung their shields around your walls; they brought your beauty to perfection.

15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.

16 Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.

17 Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.

18 By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching.

19 All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.'"

27 Your riches, your wares, your merchandise, your mariners and your pilots, your caulkers, your dealers in merchandise, and all your men of war who are in you, with all your company that is in your midst, sink into the heart of the seas on the day of your ruin.

28 At the sound of the cry of your pilots the countryside shakes,

29 and down from their ships come all that handle the oar. The mariners and all the pilots of the sea stand on the shore

30 and wail aloud over you, and cry bitterly. They cast dust on their heads and wallow in ashes;

31 they make themselves bald for you, and gird themselves with sackcloth, and they weep over you in bitterness of soul, with bitter mourning.

32 In their wailing they raise a lamentation for you, and lament over you: 'Who was ever destroyed like Tyre in the midst of the sea?

33 When your wares came from the seas, you satisfied many peoples; with your abundant wealth and merchandise you enriched the kings of the earth.

34 Now you are wrecked by the seas, in the depths of the waters; your merchandise and all your crew have sunk with you.

35 All the inhabitants of the coastlands are appalled at you; and their kings are horribly afraid, their faces are convulsed.

36 The merchants among the peoples hiss at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more for ever.'"

Ezekiel 28

1 The word of the LORD came to me:

2 Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord GOD: Because your heart is proud, and you have said, 'I am a god, I sit in the seat of the gods, in the heart of the seas,' yet you are but a man, and no god, though you consider yourself as wise as a god--

3 you are indeed wiser than Daniel; no secret is hidden from you;

4 by your wisdom and your understanding you have gotten wealth for yourself, and have gathered gold and silver into your treasuries;

5 by your great wisdom in trade you have increased your wealth, and your heart has become proud in your wealth--

6 therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "Because you consider yourself as wise as a god,

7 therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon you, the most terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom and defile your splendor.

8 They shall thrust you down into the Pit, and you shall die the death of the slain in the heart of the seas.

9 Will you still say, 'I am a god,' in the presence of those who slay you, though you are but a man, and no god, in the hands of those who wound you?

10 You shall die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of foreigners; for I have spoken, says the Lord GOD."

11 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me:

12 Son of man, raise a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Lord GOD: You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, carnelian, topaz, and jasper, chrysolite, beryl, and onyx, sapphire, carbuncle, and emerald; and wrought in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created they were prepared.

14 With an anointed guardian cherub I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked.

15 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you.

16 In the abundance of your trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned; so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God, and the guardian cherub drove you out from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Your heart was proud because of your beauty; you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. I cast you to the ground; I exposed you before kings, to feast their eyes on you.

18 By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries; so I brought forth fire from the midst of you; it consumed you, and I turned you to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all who saw you.

19 All who know you among the peoples are appalled at you; you have come to a dreadful end and shall be no more for ever."

20 The word of the LORD came to me:

21 Son of man, set your face toward Sidon, and prophesy against her

22 and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, I am against you, O Sidon, and I will manifest my glory in the midst of you. And they shall know that I am the LORD when I execute judgments in her, and manifest my holiness in her;

23 for I will send pestilence into her, and blood into her streets; and the slain shall fall in the midst of her, by the sword that is against her on every side. Then they will know that I am the LORD.

24 And for the house of Israel there shall be no more a brier to prick or a thorn to hurt them among all their neighbors who have treated them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord GOD.

25 Thus says the Lord GOD: When I gather the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and manifest my holiness in them in the sight of the nations, then they shall dwell in their own land which I gave to my servant Jacob.

26 And they shall dwell securely in it, and they shall build houses and plant vineyards. They shall dwell securely, when I execute judgments upon all their neighbors who have treated them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the LORD their God."

Ezekiel 27

1 Y vino a mí la palabra del SENOR, diciendo:

2 T?, hijo de hombre, eleva una elegía por Tiro;

3 y di a Tiro, que está asentada en las entradas del mar, negociante de los pueblos de muchas costas: "Así dice el Senor DIOS: `Tiro, tú has dicho: "Soy de perfecta hermosura."

4 `En el corazón de los mares están tus fronteras; tus edificadores perfeccionaron tu hermosura.

5 `De los cipreses de Senir te han hecho todas tus tablas; del Líbano han tomado un cedro para hacerte un mástil.

6 `De encinas de Basán han hecho tus remos; tu cubierta de boj de las costas de Chipre han incrustado con marfil.

7 `De lino fino bordado de Egipto era tu vela para que te sirviera de distintivo; de azul y p?rpura de las costas de Elisa era tu pabellón.

8 `Los habitantes de Sidón y de Arvad eran tus remeros; tus sabios, Tiro, estaban a bordo; eran tus pilotos.

9 `Los ancianos de Gebal y sus mejores obreros estaban contigo reparando tus junturas; todas las naves del mar y sus marineros estaban contigo para negociar con tus productos.

10 `Los persas, los de Lud y los de Fut eran en tu ejército tus hombres de guerra. Colgaban en ti el escudo y el yelmo, manifestaban tu esplendor.

11 `Los hijos de Arvad, con tu ejército, estaban en tus murallas todo alrededor, y los gamadeos estaban en tus torres. Colgaban sus escudos en tus murallas todo alrededor; ellos perfeccionaban tu hermosura.

12 `Tarsis era tu cliente por la abundancia de toda riqueza; con plata, hierro, estano y plomo pagaban tus mercancías.

13 `Javán, Tubal y Mesec comerciaban contigo; con hombres y con utensilios de bronce pagaban tus productos.

14 `Los de Bet-togarmá daban caballos y corceles de guerra y mulos por tus mercancías.

15 `Los hijos de Dedán comerciaban contigo. Muchas costas eran clientes tuyas; colmillos de marfil y madera de ébano te traían como pago.

16 `Aram era tu cliente por la abundancia de tus productos; pagaban tus mercancías con turquesas, p?rpura, bordados, lino fino, corales y rubíes.

17 `Judá y la tierra de Israel comerciaban contigo; con trigo de Minit, tortas, miel, aceite y bálsamo pagaban tus productos.

18 `Damasco era tu cliente por la abundancia de tus productos, por la abundancia de toda riqueza, por el vino de Helbón y la lana blanca.

19 `Vedán y Javán pagaban tus mercancías desde Uzal; hierro forjado, casia y cana dulce estaban entre tus productos.

20 `Dedán comerciaba contigo en mantas para cabalgaduras.

21 `Arabia y todos los príncipes de Cedar eran clientes tuyos: comerciaban en corderos, carneros y machos cabríos; en estas cosas eran tus clientes.

22 `Los comerciantes de Sabá y de Raama comerciaban contigo; con lo mejor de todas las especias, y con toda clase de piedras preciosas y oro pagaban tus mercancías.

23 `Harán, Cane, Edén, los comerciantes de Sabá, de Asiria y de Quilmad comerciaban contigo.

24 `Ellos comerciaban contigo en lujosos vestidos, en mantos de azul y bordados, en tapices multicolores, en cordones firmemente trenzados, que había entre tus mercancías.

25 `Las naves de Tarsis eran las portadoras de tus productos. Fuiste repleta y muy gloriosa en el corazón de los mares.

26 `A muchas aguas te condujeron tus remeros; el viento solano te destrozó en el corazón de los mares.

27 `Tus riquezas, tus mercancías, tu comercio, tus marineros y tus pilotos, tus calafates, tus agentes comerciales, y todos los hombres de guerra que hay en ti, con toda tu tripulación que en medio de ti está, caerán en el corazón de los mares el día de tu derrota.

28 `A la voz del grito de tus pilotos se estremecerán las praderas.

29 `Y descenderán de sus naves todos los que empunan el remo; los marineros y todos los pilotos del mar se quedarán en tierra;

30 harán oír su voz por ti y gritarán amargamente. Echarán polvo sobre sus cabezas, se revolcarán en ceniza;

31 se raparán la cabeza por tu causa y se cenirán de cilicio; llorarán por ti, en la amargura de su alma, con amargo duelo.

32 `Elevarán por ti una elegía en su llanto y se lamentarán por ti: "¿Quién como Tiro, como la silenciosa en medio del mar?

33 "Cuando tus mercancías salían por los mares saciabas a muchos pueblos; con la abundancia de tus riquezas y de tus productos enriquecías a los reyes de la tierra.

34 "Ahora que estás destrozada por los mares en las profundidades de las aguas, tu carga y toda tu tripulación se han hundido contigo.

35 "Todos los habitantes de las costas están pasmados por causa tuya; sus reyes están aterrorizados sobremanera, demudados sus rostros.

36 "Los mercaderes entre los pueblos te silban; te has convertido en terrores, y ya no serás más."'"

Ezekiel 28

1 Y vino a mí la palabra del SENOR, diciendo:

2 Hijo de hombre, di al príncipe de Tiro: "Así dice el Senor DIOS: `Aun cuando tu corazón se ha enaltecido y has dicho: "Un dios soy, sentado estoy en el trono de los dioses, en el corazón de los mares", no eres más que un hombre y no Dios, aunque hayas igualado tu corazón al corazón de Dios.

3 `He aquí, tú eres más sabio que Daniel; ning?n secreto te es oculto.

4 `Con tu sabiduría y tu entendimiento has adquirido riquezas para ti, y has adquirido oro y plata para tus tesoros.

5 `Con tu gran sabiduría, con tu comercio, has aumentado tus riquezas, y se ha enaltecido tu corazón a causa de tus riquezas.

6 `Por lo cual, así dice el Senor DIOS: "Por cuanto has igualado tu corazón al corazón de Dios,

7 por tanto, he aquí, traeré sobre ti extranjeros, los más crueles de entre las naciones. Y ellos desenvainarán sus espadas contra la hermosura de tu sabiduría y profanarán tu esplendor.

8 "Te harán bajar al sepulcro, y morirás con la muerte de los que mueren en el corazón de los mares.

9 "¿Dirás aun: `Un dios soy', en presencia de tu verdugo, tú que eres un hombre y no Dios, en manos de los que te hieren?

10 "Con la muerte de los incircuncisos morirás a manos de extranos, porque yo he hablado" --declara el Senor DIOS.'"

11 Y vino a mí la palabra del SENOR, diciendo:

12 Hijo de hombre, eleva una elegía sobre el rey de Tiro y dile: "Así dice el Senor DIOS: `T? eras el sello de la perfección, lleno de sabiduría y perfecto en hermosura.

13 `En el Edén estabas, en el huerto de Dios; toda piedra preciosa era tu vestidura: el rubí, el topacio y el diamante, el berilo, el ónice y el jaspe, el zafiro, la turquesa y la esmeralda; y el oro, la hechura de tus engastes y de tus encajes, estaba en ti. El día que fuiste creado fueron preparados.

14 `T?, querubín protector de alas desplegadas, yo te puse allí. Estabas en el santo monte de Dios, andabas en medio de las piedras de fuego.

15 `Perfecto eras en tus caminos desde el día que fuiste creado hasta que la iniquidad se halló en ti.

16 `A causa de la abundancia de tu comercio te llenaste de violencia, y pecaste; yo, pues, te he expulsado por profano del monte de Dios, y te he eliminado, querubín protector, de en medio de las piedras de fuego.

17 `Se enalteció tu corazón a causa de tu hermosura; corrompiste tu sabiduría a causa de tu esplendor. Te arrojé en tierra, te puse delante de los reyes, para que vieran en ti un ejemplo.

18 `Por la multitud de tus iniquidades, por la injusticia de tu comercio, profanaste tus santuarios. Y yo he sacado fuego de en medio de ti, que te ha consumido; y te he reducido a ceniza sobre la tierra a los ojos de todos los que te miran.

19 `Todos los que entre los pueblos te conocen están asombrados de ti; te has convertido en terrores, y ya no serás más.'"

20 Y vino a mí la palabra del SENOR, diciendo:

21 Hijo de hombre, pon tu rostro hacia Sidón, profetiza contra ella,

22 y di: "Así dice el Senor DIOS: `He aquí, estoy contra ti, Sidón, y seré glorificado en medio de ti; y sabrán que yo soy el SENOR, cuando ejecute juicios en ella, y manifieste en ella mi santidad.

23 `Enviaré a ella pestilencia y sangre a sus calles; los heridos caerán en medio de ella por la espada que está sobre ella por todos lados; y sabrán que yo soy el SENOR.

24 `Y no habrá más zarza punzante ni espina dolorosa para la casa de Israel de ninguno de los que la rodean y la desprecian; y sabrán que yo soy el Senor DIOS.'

25 "Así dice el Senor DIOS: `Cuando yo recoja a la casa de Israel de los pueblos donde está dispersa, y manifieste en ellos mi santidad a los ojos de las naciones, entonces habitarán en su tierra que di a mi siervo Jacob.

26 `Y habitarán en ella seguros; edificarán casas, plantarán vinas, y habitarán seguros, cuando yo haga juicios sobre todos los que a su alrededor la desprecian. Y sabrán que yo soy el SENOR su Dios.'"

Ezekiel 27

1 The word of Yahweh came again to me, saying,

2 You, son of man, take up a lamentation over Tyre;

3 and tell Tyre, you who dwell at the entry of the sea, who are the merchant of the peoples to many islands, thus says the Lord Yahweh: You, Tyre, have said, I am perfect in beauty.

4 Your borders are in the heart of the seas; your builders have perfected your beauty.

5 They have made all your planks of fir trees from Senir; they have taken a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for you.

6 Of the oaks of Bashan have they made your oars; they have made your benches of ivory inlaid in boxwood, from the islands of Kittim.

7 Of fine linen with embroidered work from Egypt was your sail, that it might be to you for a banner; blue and purple from the islands of Elishah was your awning.

8 The inhabitants of Sidon and Arvad were your rowers: your wise men, Tyre, were in you, they were your pilots.

9 The old men of Gebal and the wise men of it were in you your repairers of ship seams: all the ships of the sea with their mariners were in you to deal in your merchandise.

10 Persia and Lud and Put were in your army, your men of war: they hanged the shield and helmet in you; they set forth your comeliness.

11 The men of Arvad with your army were on your walls round about, and valorous men were in your towers; they hanged their shields on your walls round about; they have perfected your beauty.

12 Tarshish was your merchant by reason of the multitude of all kinds of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded for your wares.

13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were your traffickers; they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass for your merchandise.

14 They of the house of Togarmah traded for your wares with horses and war-horses and mules.

15 The men of Dedan were your traffickers; many islands were the market of your hand: they brought you in exchange horns of ivory and ebony.

16 Syria was your merchant by reason of the multitude of your handiworks: they traded for your wares with emeralds, purple, and embroidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and rubies.

17 Judah, and the land of Israel, they were your traffickers: they traded for your merchandise wheat of Minnith, and confections, and honey, and oil, and balm.

18 Damascus was your merchant for the multitude of your handiworks, by reason of the multitude of all kinds of riches, with the wine of Helbon, and white wool.

19 Vedan and Javan traded with yarn for your wares: bright iron, cassia, and calamus, were among your merchandise.

20 Dedan was your trafficker in precious cloths for riding.

21 Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they were the merchants of your hand; in lambs, and rams, and goats, in these were they your merchants.

22 The traffickers of Sheba and Raamah, they were your traffickers; they traded for your wares with the chief of all spices, and with all precious stones, and gold.

23 Haran and Canneh and Eden, the traffickers of Sheba, Asshur and Chilmad, were your traffickers.

24 These were your traffickers in choice wares, in wrappings of blue and embroidered work, and in chests of rich clothing, bound with cords and made of cedar, among your merchandise.

25 The ships of Tarshish were your caravans for your merchandise: and you were replenished, and made very glorious in the heart of the seas.

26 Your rowers have brought you into great waters: the east wind has broken you in the heart of the seas.

27 Your riches, and your wares, your merchandise, your mariners, and your pilots, your repairers of ship seams, and the dealers in your merchandise, and all your men of war, who are in you, with all your company which is in the midst of you, shall fall into the heart of the seas in the day of your ruin.

28 At the sound of the cry of your pilots the suburbs shall shake.

29 All who handled the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots of the sea, shall come down from their ships; they shall stand on the land,

30 and shall cause their voice to be heard over you, and shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust on their heads, they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:

31 and they shall make themselves bald for you, and gird them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for you in bitterness of soul with bitter mourning.

32 In their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for you, and lament over you, saying, Who is there like Tyre, like her who is brought to silence in the midst of the sea?

33 When your wares went forth out of the seas, you filled many peoples; you did enrich the kings of the earth with the multitude of your riches and of your merchandise.

34 In the time that you were broken by the seas in the depths of the waters, your merchandise and all your company did fall in the midst of you.

35 All the inhabitants of the islands are astonished at you, and their kings are horribly afraid; they are troubled in their face.

36 The merchants among the peoples hiss at you; you are become a terror, and you shall nevermore have any being.

Ezekiel 28

1 The word of Yahweh came again to me, saying,

2 Son of man, tell the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: Because your heart is lifted up, and you have said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet you are man, and not God, though you did set your heart as the heart of God;-

3 behold, you are wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that is hidden from you;

4 by your wisdom and by your understanding you have gotten you riches, and have gotten gold and silver into your treasures;

5 by your great wisdom and by your traffic have you increased your riches, and your heart is lifted up because of your riches;-

6 therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh: Because you have set your heart as the heart of God,

7 therefore, behold, I will bring strangers on you, the terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom, and they shall defile your brightness.

8 They shall bring you down to the pit; and you shall die the death of those who are slain, in the heart of the seas.

9 Will you yet say before him who kills you, I am God? but you are man, and not God, in the hand of him who wounds you.

10 You shall die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, says the Lord Yahweh.

11 Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,

12 Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and tell him, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: You seal up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz, emerald, chrysolite, onx, jasper, sapphire (1), turquoise, and beryl. Gold work of tambourines and of pipes was in you. In the day that you were created they were prepared.

14 You were the anointed cherub who covers: and I set you, so that you were on the holy mountain of God; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, until unrighteousness was found in you.

16 By the abundance of your traffic they filled the midst of you with violence, and you have sinned: therefore I have cast you as profane out of the mountain of God; and I have destroyed you, covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; you have corrupted your wisdom by reason of your brightness: I have cast you to the ground; I have laid you before kings, that they may see you.

18 By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your traffic, you have profaned your sanctuaries; therefore have I brought forth a fire from the midst of you; it has devoured you, and I have turned you to ashes on the earth in the sight of all those who see you.

19 All those who know you among the peoples shall be astonished at you: you are become a terror, and you shall nevermore have any being.

20 The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,

21 Son of man, set your face toward Sidon, and prophesy against it,

22 and say, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: Behold, I am against you, Sidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of you; and they shall know that I am Yahweh, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.

23 For I will send pestilence into her, and blood into her streets; and the wounded shall fall in the midst of her, with the sword on her on every side; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.

24 There shall be no more a pricking brier to the house of Israel, nor a hurting thorn of any that are round about them, that did despite to them; and they shall know that I am the Lord Yahweh.

25 Thus says the Lord Yahweh: When I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the peoples among whom they are scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the nations, then shall they dwell in their own land which I gave to my servant Jacob.

26 They shall dwell securely therein; yes, they shall build houses, and plant vineyards, and shall dwell securely, when I have executed judgments on all those who do them despite round about them; and they shall know that I am Yahweh their God.

Ezekiel 27

1 ¶And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying:

2 "And thou, son of man, lift up concerning Tyre a lamentation, and thou hast said to Tyre:

3 O dweller on the entrances of the sea, Merchant of the peoples unto many isles, Thus said the Lord Jehovah: O Tyre, thou -- thou hast said: I am the perfection of beauty.

4 In the heart of the seas are thy borders, Thy builders have perfected thy beauty.

5 Of firs of Senir they have built to thee all thy double-boarded ships, Of cedars of Lebanon they have taken to make a mast for thee,

6 Of oaks of Bashan they made thine oars, Thy bench they have made of ivory, A branch of Ashurim from isles of Chittim.

7 Of fine linen with embroidery from Egypt hath been thy sail, To be to thee for an ensign, Of blue and purple from isles of Elishah hath been thy covering.

8 Inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad have been rowers to thee, Thy wise men, O Tyre, have been in thee, They are thy pilots.

9 Elders of Gebal and its wise men have been in thee, Strengthening thy breach; All ships of the sea and their mariners, Have been in thee, to trade with thy merchandise.

10 Persian and Lud and Phut Have been in thy forces -- thy men of war. Shield and helmet they hung up in thee, They -- they have given out thine honour.

11 The sons of Arvad, and thy force, Are on thy walls round about, And short swordsmen in thy towers have been, Their shields they have hung up on thy walls round about, They -- they have perfected thy beauty.

12 Tarshish is thy merchant, Because of the abundance of all wealth, For silver, iron, tin, and lead, They have given out thy remnants.

13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech -- they are thy merchants, For persons of men, and vessels of brass, They have given out thy merchandise.

15 Sons of Dedan are thy merchants, Many isles are the mart of thy hand, Horns of ivory and ebony they sent back thy reward.

16 Aram is thy merchant, Because of the abundance of thy works, For emerald, purple, and embroidery, And fine linen, and coral, and agate, They have given out thy remnants.

17 Judah and the land of Israel -- they are thy merchants, For wheat of Minnith, and Pannag, And honey, and oil, and balm, They have given out thy merchandise.

18 Damascus is thy merchant, For the abundance of thy works, Because of the abundance of all wealth, For wine of Helbon, and white wool.

19 Vedan and Javan go about with thy remnants, They have given shining iron, cassia, and cane, In thy merchandise it hath been.

20 Dedan is thy merchant, For clothes of freedom for riding.

21 Arabia, and all princes of Kedar, They are the traders of thy hand, For lambs, and rams, and he-goats, In these thy merchants.

22 Merchants of Sheba and Raamah -- they are thy merchants, For the chief of all spices, And for every precious stone, and gold, They have given out thy remnants.

23 Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, merchants of Sheba, Asshur -- Chilmad -- are thy merchants,

24 They are thy merchants for perfect things, For wrappings of blue, and embroidery, And for treasuries of rich apparel, With cords bound and girded, for thy merchandise,

25 Ships of Tarshish are thy double walls of thy merchandise, And thou art filled and honoured greatly, In the heart of the seas.

26 ¶Into great waters have they brought thee, Those rowing thee, The east wind hath broken thee in the heart of the seas.

27 Thy wealth and thy remnants, Thy merchandise, thy mariners, And thy pilots, strengtheners of thy breach, And the traders of thy merchandise, And all thy men of war, who are in thee, And in all thine assembly that is in thy midst, Fall into the heart of the seas in the day of thy fall,

28 At the voice of the cry of thy pilots shake do the suburbs.

29 And come down from their ships have all handling an oar, Mariners, all the pilots of the sea, on the land they stand,

30 And have sounded for thee with their voice, And cry bitterly, and cause dust to go up on their heads, In ashes they do roll themselves.

31 And they have made for thee baldness, And they have girded on sackcloth, And they have wept for thee, In bitterness of soul -- a bitter mourning.

32 And lifted up for thee have their sons a lamentation, And they have lamented over thee, who is as Tyre? As the cut-off one in the midst of the sea?

33 With the outgoing of thy remnants from the seas, Thou hast filled many peoples, With the abundance of thy riches, and thy merchandise, Thou hast made rich things of earth.

34 The time of thy being broken by the seas in the depths of the waters, Thy merchandise and all thy assembly in thy midst have fallen.

35 All inhabitants of the isles have been astonished at thee, And their kings have been sore afraid, They have been troubled in countenance.

36 Merchants among the peoples have shrieked for thee, Wastes thou hast been, and thou art not -- to the age!"
