Isaiah 23


23:1 The burden of Tyre. Howl, ye ships of Tarshish; for it is
 laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the
 land of Chittim it is revealed to them.
23:2 Be still, ye inhabitants of the isle; thou whom the
 merchants of Zidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.
23:3 And by great waters the seed of Sihor, the harvest of the
 river, [is] her revenue; and she is a mart of nations.
23:4 Be thou ashamed, O Zidon: for the sea hath spoken, [even]
 the strength of the sea, saying, I travail not, nor bring forth
 children, neither do I nourish young men, [nor] bring up
 virgins.
23:5 As at the report concerning Egypt, [so] shall they be
 sorely pained at the report of Tyre.
23:6 Pass ye over to Tarshish; howl, ye inhabitants of the isle.
23:7 [Is] this your joyous [city], whose antiquity [is] of
 ancient days? her own feet shall carry her far off to sojourn.
23:8 Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning
 [city], whose merchants [are] princes, whose traders [are] the
 honorable of the earth?
23:9 The LORD of hosts hath purposed it, to stain the pride of
 all glory, [and] to bring into contempt all the honorable of
 the earth.
23:10 Pass through thy land as a river, O daughter of Tarshish:
 [there is] no more strength.
23:11 He stretched his hand over the sea, he shook the kingdoms:
 the LORD hath given a commandment against the merchant [city],
 to destroy its strong holds.
23:12 And he said, Thou shalt no more rejoice, O thou oppressed
 virgin, daughter of Zidon: arise, pass over to Chittim; there
 also shalt thou have no rest.
23:13 Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not,
 [till] the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the
 wilderness: they set up its towers, they raised up its palaces;
 [and] he brought it to ruin.
23:14 Howl, ye ships of Tarshish: for your strength is laid
 waste.
23:15 And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be
 forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king:
 after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as a harlot.
23:16 Take a harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been
 forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest
 be remembered.
23:17 And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years,
 that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire,
 and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world
 upon the face of the earth.
23:18 And her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to the
 LORD: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her
 merchandise shall be for them that dwell before the LORD, for
 sufficient food, and for durable clothing.
