16 All the princes of the sea will descend from their thrones,(A) remove their robes, and strip off their embroidered garments. They will clothe themselves with trembling; they will sit on the ground, tremble continually, and be appalled(B) at you. 17 Then they will lament(C) for you and say of you,

‘How you have perished, city of renown,
you who were populated from the seas![a]
She who was powerful on the sea,
she and all of her inhabitants
inflicted their terror.[b]
18 Now the coastlands tremble(D)
on the day of your downfall;
the islands in the sea
are alarmed by your demise.’”
