30 and they will lament[a] over you with their voice,
    and they will cry out[b] bitterly,
and they will throw[c] dust on their heads,
    and they will roll[d] in the dust.
31 They will shave themselves bald for your sake,[e]
    and they will dress[f] themselves in sackcloth,
and they will weep[g] over you with a bitterness of soul[h]
    and with bitter wailing.
32 And they will raise[i] over you with their wailing a lament,
    and they will chant[j] a lament over you:
‘Who is like Tyre,
    like this destruction in the midst of the sea?’
