16 Then all the ·leaders [princes] of the ·seacoast [L sea] will get down from their thrones, take off their ·beautiful needlework [embroidered] clothes, and ·show how afraid they are [L clothe themselves with trembling]. They will sit on the ground and tremble ·all the time [continuously], ·shocked [appalled; aghast] when they see you. 17 They will begin singing a ·funeral song [lament; dirge] about you and will say to you:
‘Famous city [C Tyre was a great maritime power], you have been destroyed!
You have lost your sea power!
You and your ·people [inhabitants]
had great power on the seas.
You made everyone around you
afraid of you.
18 Now the ·people who live by the coast [coastlands will] tremble,
·now that [L on the day] you have fallen.
The ·islands [or coastlands] of the sea
are ·afraid [terrified; dismayed] ·because you have been defeated [at your demise/passing].’
