17 And they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and say to thee, How art thou destroyed, that wast inhabited [b]of the Sea men, the renowned city which was strong in the sea, both she and her inhabitants, which cause their fear to be on all that haunt therein!
18 Now shall the isles be astonished in the day of thy fall: yea, the isles that are in the sea, shall be troubled at thy departure.
Ezekiel 26:16The governors and rulers of other countries that dwell by the sea: whereby he signifieth that her destruction should be so horrible, that all the world should hear thereof and be afraid.
Ezekiel 26:17Meaning, merchants which by their traffic did enrich her wonderfully and increase her power.
