Ezekiel 261599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
26 1 He prophesieth that Tyre shall be overthrown, because it rejoiced at the destruction of Jerusalem. 15 The wondering and astonishment of the merchants for the destruction of Tyre.
1 And in the [a]eleventh year in the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
3 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I come against thee, O Tyre, and I will bring up many nations against thee, as the sea mounteth up with his waves.
4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock.
5 Thou shalt be for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God, and it shall be a spoil to the nations.
6 And her [d]daughters which are in the field, shall be slain by the sword, and they shall know that I am the Lord.
7 For thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I will bring upon Tyre Nebuchadnezzar king of Babel, a King of kings from the North, with horses and with chariots, and with horsemen, with a multitude and much people.
8 He shall slay with the sword thy daughters in the field, and he shall make a fort against thee, and cast a mount against thee, and lift up the buckler against thee.
9 He shall set engines of war before him against thy walls, and with his weapons break down thy towers.
10 The dust of his horses shall cover thee, for their multitude: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the horsemen, and of the wheels, and of the chariots, when he shall enter into thy gates as into the entry of a city that is broken down.
11 With the hooves of his horses shall he tread down all thy streets: he shall slay the people by the sword, and the [e]pillars of thy strength shall fall down to the ground.
12 And they shall rob thy riches, and spoil thy merchandise, and they shall break down thy walls, and destroy thy pleasant houses, and they shall cast thy stones and thy timber and thy dust into the midst of the water.
13 Thus will I cause the sound of thy songs to cease, and the sound of thine harps shall be no more heard.
14 I will lay thee like the top of a rock: [f]thou shalt be for a spreading of nets: thou shalt be built no more: for I the Lord have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
15 Thus saith the Lord God to Tyre, Shall not the isles tremble at the sound of thy fall? and at the cry of the wounded, when they shall be slain and murdered in the midst of thee?
16 Then all the princes of the [g]sea shall come down from their thrones: they shall lay away their robes, and put off their broidered garments, and shall clothe themselves with astonishment: they shall sit upon the ground and be astonished at every moment, and be amazed at thee.
17 And they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and say to thee, How art thou destroyed, that wast inhabited [h]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.
19 For thus saith the Lord God, when I shall make thee a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited, and when I shall bring the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee,
20 When I shall cast thee down with them that descend into the pit, with the people [i]of old time, and shall set thee in the low parts of the earth, like the old ruins, with them, I say, which go down to the pit, so that thou shalt not be inhabited, and I shall show my glory in the land of the [j]living.
21 I will [k]bring thee to nothing, and thou shalt be no more: though thou be sought for, yet shalt thou never be found again, saith the Lord God.
