Isaiah 23
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1The burden of Tsur: “Howl ships of Tarshish, because he who leads a house is plundered, and from the land of Kathim it has been revealed to us

2Be still, inhabitants of the Merchant island of Tsidon, which is beyond in the Sea

3Your cargo is in many waters, seed of the Merchant, harvest of the river; its harvest was the merchandise for the nations

4Be ashamed, Tsidon, because the sea and the strength of the sea said: “I have not been in labor and I have not raised neither given birth to boys, nor have I raised girls!”

5When that is heard in Egypt, labor pains shall seize them, according to the report of Tsur

6Cross over to Tarshish! Wail, inhabitants of the island!

7This is your fortress that is from the first days. Her feet shall go before her, that she will cross over far away

8Who has counseled in this way against the crowned Tsur, whose Merchants are Princes and its Merchants the honorable of the Earth?

9LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts purposed to end the honor of every power and to dishonor all the honorable of the Earth

10Pass through your land like a river, daughter of Tarshish. There is none who drives you away again

11He lifted his hand over the sea and he angered the kingdoms. LORD JEHOVAH commanded against Canaan to destroy its mighty ones

12And he said: "You shall be strengthened no more, oppressed virgin daughter of Tsidon! Arise, pass through to Kathim; even there we shall give you no rest!”

13Behold, land of The Chaldeans, this is the people that was not the Assyrian; he made it for The Spirit, and he has raised up spies. They spied on her palaces and they made it a ruin

14Howl, ships of Tarshish, because your power is plundered!

15But it shall be in that day, Tsur will be forgotten seventy years as the days of one King, and after seventy years they shall sing to Tsur the song of a harlot

16Take a harp and go around the city, whore that was forgotten! Play beautifully! Multiply singers so that you will be remembered!

17And it will be after seventy years, LORD JEHOVAH shall visit Tsur, and it shall return its hire money, and it shall fornicate in all the kingdoms upon the face of the Earth 18And its merchandise and its hire money shall be holy to LORD JEHOVAH. It will not be laid in the house of treasure, and it shall not be kept unless her merchandise will be for those who dwell before LORD JEHOVAH, to eat and to satisfy and to cover his Elders
