Ezekiel 26
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And it comes to pass, in the eleventh year, on the first of the month, there has been a word of YHWH to me, saying, “Son of man, 2Because that Tyre has said of Jerusalem: Aha, she has been broken, "" The doors of the peoples, "" She has turned around to me, "" I am filled—she has been laid waste, 3Therefore, thus said Lord YHWH: Behold, I [am] against you, O Tyre, "" And have caused many nations to come up against you, "" As the sea causes its billows to come up. 4And they have destroyed the walls of Tyre, "" And they have broken down her towers, "" And I have scraped her dust from her, "" And made her for a clear place of a rock. 5She is a spreading place of nets in the midst of the sea, "" For I have spoken,” "" A declaration of Lord YHWH, "" “And she has been for a spoil to nations. 6And her daughters who [are] in the field, are slain by sword, "" And they have known that I [am] YHWH,”

7For thus said Lord YHWH: “Behold, I am bringing Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon to Tyre, "" From the north—a king of kings, "" With horse, and with chariot, and with horsemen, "" Even an assembly, and a numerous people. 8He slays your daughters in the field by sword, "" And he has made a fort against you, "" And has poured out a mound against you, "" And has raised a buckler against you. 9And he places a battering-ram before him against your walls, "" And he breaks your towers with his weapons. 10From the abundance of his horses their dust cover you, "" From the noise of horseman, and wheel, and rider, "" Your walls shake, in his coming into your gates, "" As the coming into a city that has been broken-up. 11He treads all your out-places with [the] hooves of his horses, "" He slays your people by sword, "" And the pillars of your strength come down to the earth. 12And they have spoiled your wealth, "" And they have plundered your merchandise, "" And they have thrown down your walls, "" And they break down your desirable houses, "" And your stones, and your wood, and your dust, "" They place in the midst of the waters. 13And I have caused the noise of your songs to cease, "" And the voice of your harps is heard no more. 14And I have given you up for a clear place of a rock, "" You are a spreading-place of nets, "" You are not built up anymore, "" For I, YHWH, have spoken,” "" A declaration of Lord YHWH.

15Thus said Lord YHWH to Tyre: “Do not—from the noise of your fall, "" In the groaning of the wounded, "" In the slaying of the slaughter in your midst—The islands shake? 16And all princes of the sea have come down from off their thrones, "" And they have turned their robes aside, "" And strip off their embroidered garments, "" They put on trembling, "" They sit on the earth, "" And they have trembled every moment, "" And they have been astonished at you,

17And have lifted up a lamentation for you, "" And said to you: How you have perished, "" That are inhabited from the seas, "" The praised city, that was strong in the sea, "" She and her inhabitants, "" Who put their terror on all her inhabitants!

18Now the islands tremble [on the] day of your fall; The islands that [are] in the sea have been troubled at your outgoing.”

19For thus said Lord YHWH: “In My making you a city dried up, "" Like cities that have not been inhabited, "" In bringing up the deep against you, "" Then the great waters have covered you. 20And I have caused you to go down, "" With those going down to the pit, "" To the people of old, "" And I have caused you to dwell "" In the lower parts of the earth—in ancient ruins, "" With those going down to the pit, "" So that you are not inhabited, "" And I have given beauty in the land of the living. 21I make you a terror, and you are not, "" And you are sought, and are not found anymore—for all time,” "" A declaration of Lord YHWH!
