28 At the sound of the cry of your sailors,
The pasture lands will (A)shake.
29 All who handle the oar,
The (B)seamen and all the sailors of the sea
Will come down from their ships;
They will stand on the land,
30 And they will (C)make their voice heard over you
And cry out bitterly.
They will (D)throw dust on their heads,
They will (E)wallow in ashes.
31 Also they will shave themselves (F)bald for you
And (G)put on sackcloth;
And they will (H)weep for you in bitterness of soul
With bitter mourning.
32 Moreover, in their wailing they will take up a (I)song of mourning for you
And sing a song of mourning over you:
‘Who is like Tyre,
Like her who is silent in the midst of the sea?
33 When your merchandise went out from the seas,
You satisfied many peoples;
With the (J)abundance of your wealth and your merchandise
You enriched the kings of the earth.
34 [a]Now that you are (K)broken by the seas
In the depths of the waters,
Your (L)merchandise and all your company
Have fallen in the midst of you.
35 All the (M)inhabitants of the coastlands
Are appalled at you,
And their kings are horribly afraid;
They [b]have a troubled look.
36 The merchants among the peoples (N)hiss at you;
You have become [c]terrified
And you (O)will cease to be forever.’”’”
