27 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Now you, tson of man, uraise a lamentation over Tyre, 3 and say to Tyre, who dwells at vthe entrances to the sea, wmerchant of the peoples to many coastlands, thus says the Lord God:
‘I am xperfect in beauty.’
4 Your borders are yin the heart of the seas;
of fir trees from zSenir;
they took aa cedar from Lebanon
6 Of boaks of Bashan
from cthe coasts of Cyprus,
7 dOf fine embroidered linen from Egypt
blue and purple from cthe coasts of Elishah
8 The inhabitants of Sidon and eArvad
they were fyour pilots.
9 The elders of gGebal and her skilled men were in you,
hcaulking your seams;
10 i“Persia and jLud and iPut were in your army as your men of war. kThey hung the shield and helmet in you; they gave you splendor. 11 Men of eArvad and Helech were on your walls all around, and men of Gamad were in your towers. They hung their shields on your walls all around; they made xperfect your beauty.
12 l“Tarshish did mbusiness with you because of your great wealth of every kind; silver, iron, tin, and lead they exchanged for your nwares. 13 oJavan, pTubal, and pMeshech traded with you; they exchanged human beings and vessels of bronze for your merchandise. 14 From qBeth-togarmah they exchanged horses, war horses, and mules rfor your wares. 15 The men of sDedan1 traded with you. Many coastlands were your own special markets; they brought you in payment ivory tusks and ebony. 16 Syria tdid business with you because of your abundant goods; they exchanged for your wares uemeralds, upurple, vembroidered work, wfine linen, coral, and xruby. 17 Judah and the land of Israel traded with you; they exchanged for your merchandise ywheat of zMinnith, meal,2 honey, oil, and abalm. 18 bDamascus did business with you for your abundant goods, because of your great wealth of every kind; wine of Helbon and cwool of Sahar 19 and casks of wine3 from Uzal they exchanged for your wares; wrought iron, dcassia, and ecalamus were bartered for your merchandise. 20 Dedan traded with you in saddlecloths for riding. 21 Arabia and all the princes of fKedar were your favored dealers fin lambs, rams, and goats; in these they did business with you. 22 The traders of gSheba and gRaamah traded with you; they exchanged hfor your wares ithe best of all kinds of spices and all precious stones and gold. 23 jHaran, Canneh, jEden, traders of Sheba, kAsshur, and Chilmad traded with you. 24 In your market these traded with you in choice garments, in clothes of lblue and lembroidered work, and in carpets of colored material, bound with cords and made secure. 25 mThe ships of nTarshish traveled for you with your merchandise. So you were filled and heavily laden oin the heart of the seas.
pThe east wind has wrecked you
your mariners and qyour pilots,
ryour caulkers, your dealers in merchandise,
son the day of your fall.
tthe countryside shakes,
ucome all who handle the oar.
30 uand shout aloud over you
vThey cast dust on their heads
wand wallow in ashes;
31 they xmake themselves bald for you
32 In their wailing they yraise a lamentation for you
z‘Who is like Tyre,
ayou satisfied many peoples;
ayou enriched the kings of the earth.
34 Now byou are wrecked by the seas,
35 cAll the inhabitants of the coastlands
and dthe hair of their kings bristles with horror;
gyou have come to a dreadful end
