Now in the eleventh year, on the first of the month, the word of the Lord came to me saying,
"Son of man, because aTyre has said concerning Jerusalem, 'Aha, the bgateway of the peoples is broken; it has copened to me. I shall be filled, now that she is laid waste,'
therefore thus says the Lord GOD, 'Behold, I am against you, O Tyre, and I will bring up amany nations against you, as the bsea brings up its waves.
'They will adestroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers; and I will scrape her debris from her and make her a bare rock.
'She will be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of the sea, for I have spoken,' declares the Lord GOD, 'and she will become aspoil for the nations.
'Also her adaughters who are on the mainland will be slain by the sword, and they will know that I am the Lord.'"
For thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I will bring upon Tyre from the north Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, aking of kings, with horses, bchariots, cavalry and a great army.
"He will slay your daughters on the mainland with the sword; and he will make asiege walls against you, cast up a bramp against you and raise up a large shield against you.

"With the hoofs of his ahorses he will trample all your streets. He will slay your people with the sword; and your strong pillars will bcome down to the ground.
"Also they will make a spoil of your riches and a prey of your amerchandise, bbreak down your walls and destroy your cpleasant houses, and throw your stones and your timbers and your debris dinto the water.
"So I will silence the sound of your asongs, and the sound of your bharps will be heard no more.
"I will make you a bare rock; you will be a place for the spreading of nets. You will be abuilt no more, for I the bLord have spoken," declares the Lord GOD.
Thus says the Lord GOD to Tyre, "Shall not the acoastlands bshake at the sound of your fall when the wounded groan, when the slaughter occurs in your midst?
"Then all the princes of the sea will ago down from their thrones, remove their robes and strip off their embroidered garments. They will bclothe themselves with trembling; they will sit on the ground, ctremble every moment and be appalled at you.
"They will take up a alamentation over you and say to you,
