17 They will sing this sad song about you:

“‘Tyre, you were a famous city.[a]
    People came from across the sea to live in you.[b]
You were famous,
    but now you are gone!
You were strong on the sea,
    and so were the people who lived in you.
You made all who live on the mainland
    afraid of you.
18 Now, on the day you fall,
    the countries along the coast will shake with fear.
You started many colonies along the coast.
    Now those people will be afraid when you are gone!’”

19 This is what the Lord God says: “Tyre, you will become an old, empty city. No one will live there. I will cause the sea to flow over you. The great sea will cover you.
