Ezekiel 26


26:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first
 [day] of the month, [that] the word of the LORD came to me,
 saying,
26:2 Son of man, because that Tyre hath said against Jerusalem,
 Aha, she is broken [that was] the gates of the people: she is
 turned to me: I shall be replenished, [now] she is laid waste:
26:3 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I [am] against
 thee, O Tyre, and will cause many nations to come up against
 thee, as the sea causeth its waves to come up.
26:4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyre, and break down
 her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her
 like the top of a rock.
26:5 It shall be [a place for] the spreading of nets in the
 midst of the sea: for I have spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD:
 and it shall become a spoil to the nations.
26:6 And her daughters who [are] in the field shall be slain by
 the sword; and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.
26:7 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring upon Tyre
 Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the
 north, with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and
 companies, and much people.
26:8 He shall slay with the sword thy daughters in the field:
 and he shall make a fort against thee, and cast a mount against
 thee, and lift up the buckler against thee.
26:9 And he shall set engines of war against thy walls, and with
 his axes he shall break down thy towers.
26:10 By reason of the abundance of his horses their dust shall
 cover thee: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the horsemen,
 and of the wheels, and of the chariots, when he shall enter
 into thy gates, as men enter into a city in which is made a
 breach.
26:11 With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy
 streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong
 garrisons shall go down to the ground.
26:12 And they shall make a spoil of thy riches, and make a prey
 of thy merchandise: and they shall break down thy walls, and
 destroy thy pleasant houses: and they shall lay thy stones and
 thy timber and thy dust in the midst of the water.
26:13 And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease; and the
 sound of thy harps shall be no more heard.
26:14 And I will make thee like the top of a rock: thou shalt be
 [a place] to spread nets upon; thou shalt be built no more: for
 I the LORD have spoken [it], saith the Lord GOD.
26:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD to Tyre; Shall not the isles shake
 at the sound of thy fall, when the wounded cry, when the
 slaughter is made in the midst of thee?
26:16 Then all the princes of the sea shall come down from their
 thrones, and lay away their robes, and put off their broidered
 garments: they shall clothe themselves with trembling; they
 shall sit upon the ground, and shall tremble at [every] moment,
 and be astonished at thee.
26:17 And they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and say to
 thee, How art thou destroyed, [that wast] inhabited by
 sea-faring men, the renowned city, which wast strong in the
 sea, she and her inhabitants, who cause their terror [to be] on
 all that haunt it!
26:18 Now shall the isles tremble in the day of thy fall; yes,
 the isles that [are] in the sea shall be disturbed at thy
 departure.
26:19 For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a
 desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I
 shall bring up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover
 thee;
26:20 When I shall bring thee down with them that descend into
 the pit, with the people of old time, and shall set thee in the
 low parts of the earth, in places desolate of old, with them
 that go down to the pit, that thou be not inhabited; and I
 shall set glory in the land of the living;
26:21 I will make thee a terror, and thou [shalt be] no [more]:
 though thou shalt be sought for, yet shalt thou never be found
 again, saith the Lord GOD.
