Tyre will be ·an island [L in the midst of the sea] where fishermen dry their nets. I have spoken, says the Lord God. ·The nations will steal treasures from Tyre [L She will become plunder for the nations].
and it will become a place where nets will be spread out right in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. Because I have declared this to happen,’ declares the Lord God, ‘Tyre will be treated as the spoils of war by the invading nations.
“Therefore, God, the Master, has this to say: “‘I’m against you, Tyre, and I’ll bring many nations surging against you, as the waves of the sea surging against the shore. They’ll smash the city walls of Tyre and break down her towers. I’ll wash away the soil and leave nothing but bare rock. She’ll be an island of bare rock in the ocean, good for nothing but drying fishnets. Yes, I’ve said so.’ Decree of God, the Master. ‘She’ll be loot, free pickings for the nations! Her surrounding villages will be butchered. Then they’ll realize that I am God.’
Drying of nets [it] shall be in the midst of the sea, for I spake, saith the Lord God. And Tyre shall be into ravishing to heathen men. (It shall be for the drying of nets in the midst of the sea, for I have spoken, saith the Lord God. And Tyre shall be for robbing, or for spoils, for the heathen.)
