23 1 A Prophecy against Tyre. 17 A promise that it shall be restored.

The [a]burden of Tyre. Howl ye ships of [b]Tarshish: for [c]it is destroyed, so that there is none house: none shall come from the land of [d]Kittim: it is [e]revealed unto them.

Be still, ye that dwell in the isles: the merchants of Sidon, and such as pass over the sea, have [f]replenished thee.
