Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And there is a word of YHWH to me, saying, 2“And you, son of man, lift up a lamentation concerning Tyre, and you have said to Tyre:

3O dweller on the entrances of the sea, "" Merchant of the peoples to many islands, Thus said Lord YHWH: O Tyre, you have said, "" I [am] the perfection of beauty.

4Your borders [are] in the heart of the seas, "" Your builders have perfected your beauty.

5They have built of firs from Senir all your double-boarded ships for you, "" They have taken of cedars from Lebanon to make a mast for you,

6They made your oars of oaks from Bashan, "" They have made your bench of ivory, "" A branch of Ashurim from islands of Chittim.

7Your sail has been of fine linen with embroidery from Egypt, "" To be for your ensign, "" Your covering has been of blue and purple from islands of Elishah.

8Inhabitants of Sidon and Arvad have been rowers for you, "" Your wise men, O Tyre, have been in you, "" They [are] your pilots.

9The elderly of Gebal and its wise men have been in you, "" Strengthening your breach; All ships of the sea and their mariners, "" Have been in you, to trade your merchandise.

10Persia and Lud and Phut "" Have been in your forces—your men of war. They hung up shield and helmet in you, "" They have given out your honor. 11The sons of Arvad, and your force, "" [Are] on your walls all around, "" And short swordsmen have been in your towers, "" They have hung up their shields on your walls all around, "" They have perfected your beauty.

12Tarshish [is] your merchant, "" Because of the abundance of all wealth, "" They have given silver, iron, tin, and lead [for] your wares. 13Javan, Tubal, and Meshech—they [are] your merchants, "" They have given [the] soul of man, and vessels of bronze, [for] your merchandise. 14Those of the house of Togarmah, "" They have given horses, and riding steeds, and mules [for] your wares. 15Sons of Dedan [are] your merchants, "" Many islands [are] the market of your hand, "" They sent back horns of ivory and ebony [for] your reward. 16Aram [is] your merchant, "" Because of the abundance of your works, "" They have given emerald, purple, and embroidery, "" And fine linen, and coral, and agate for your wares. 17Judah and the land of Israel—they [are] your merchants, "" They have given wheat of Minnith, and Pannag, "" And honey, and oil, and balm [for] your merchandise. 18Damascus [is] your merchant, "" For the abundance of your works, "" Because of the abundance of all wealth, "" For wine of Helbon, and white wool. 19Dan and Javan go about with your wares, "" They have given shining iron, cassia, and cane, "" It has been in your merchandise. 20Dedan [is] your merchant, "" For clothes of freedom for riding. 21Arabia, and all princes of Kedar, "" They [are] the traders of your hand, "" For lambs, and rams, and male goats, "" In these your merchants. 22Merchants of Sheba and Raamah—they [are] your merchants, "" They have given the chief of all spices, "" And every precious stone, and gold [for] your wares. 23Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, merchants of Sheba, Asshur—Chilmad—[are] your merchants, 24They [are] your merchants for perfect things, "" For wrappings of blue, and embroidery, "" And for treasuries of rich apparel, "" With cords bound and girded, for your merchandise,

25Ships of Tarshish are journeying [with] your merchandise for you, "" And you are filled and honored greatly, "" In the heart of the seas.

26Those rowing you have brought you into great waters, "" The east wind has broken you in the heart of the seas.

27Your wealth and your wares, "" Your merchandise, your mariners, "" And your pilots, strengtheners of your breach, "" And the traders of your merchandise, "" And all your men of war, who [are] in you, "" And in all your assembly that [is] in your midst, "" Fall into the heart of the seas in the day of your fall,

28At the voice of the cry of your pilots the outskirts shake.

29And all handling an oar come down from their ships, "" Mariners [and] all the pilots of the sea stand on the land,

30And have sounded with their voice for you, "" And cry bitterly, and cause dust to go up on their heads, "" They roll themselves in ashes;

31And they have made themselves bald for you, "" And they have girded on sackcloth, "" And they have wept for you, "" In bitterness of soul—a bitter mourning.

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

33With the outgoing of your wares from the seas, "" You have filled many peoples, "" With the abundance of your riches, and your merchandise, "" You have enriched [the] kings of earth.

34At the time of [your] being broken by the seas in the depths of the waters, "" Your merchandise and all your assembly have fallen in your midst.

35All inhabitants of the islands have been astonished at you, "" And their kings have been severely afraid, "" They have been troubled in countenance.

36Merchants among the peoples have shrieked for you, "" You have been terrors, and you are not—for all time!”
