They shave their heads for you, and they put on ·rough cloth [burlap; sackcloth; C signs of sorrow and distress]. They ·cry and sob for you [weep over you with bitter souls]; they ·cry loudly [mourn bitterly].
“‘Your sailors row mightily, taking you into the high seas. Then a storm out of the east shatters your ship in the ocean deep. Everything sinks—your rich goods and products, sailors and crew, ship’s carpenters and soldiers, Sink to the bottom of the sea. Total shipwreck. The cries of your sailors reverberate on shore. Sailors everywhere abandon ship. Veteran seamen swim for dry land. They cry out in grief, a choir of bitter lament over you. They smear their faces with ashes, shave their heads, Wear rough burlap, wildly keening their loss. They raise their funeral song: “Who on the high seas is like Tyre!”
And they shall shave baldness on thee, and shall be gird with hair-shirts (And they shall shave themselves bald for thee, and shall be clothed in hair-shirts), and they shall beweep thee in bitterness of soul, with most bitter weeping.
