You, son of man, take up a lamentation over Tyre;
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 the LORD: You, Tyre, have said, I am perfect in beauty.
Your borders are in the heart of the seas; your builders have perfected your beauty.
They have made all your planks of fir trees from Senir; they have taken a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for you.
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.

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

At the sound of the cry of your pilots the suburbs shall shake.
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,
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:
and they shall make themselves bald for you, and clothe them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for you in bitterness of soul with bitter mourning.
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?
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.
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.
All the inhabitants of the islands are astonished at you, and their kings are horribly afraid; they are troubled in their face.
The merchants among the peoples hiss at you; you are become a terror, and you shall nevermore have any being.
