and deep mourning.
As they wail and mourn over you,
they sing this sad funeral song:
‘Was there ever such a city as Tyre,
now silent at the bottom of the sea?
The merchandise you traded
satisfied the desires of many nations.
Kings at the ends of the earth
were enriched by your trade.
Now you are a wrecked ship,
broken at the bottom of the sea.
All your merchandise and crew
have gone down with you.
All who live along the coastlands
are appalled at your terrible fate.
Their kings are filled with horror
and look on with twisted faces.
The merchants among the nations
shake their heads at the sight of you,
for you have come to a horrible end
and will exist no more.’”
Then this message came to me from the Lord: “Son of man, give the
prince of Tyre this message from the Sovereign Lord:
“In your great pride you claim, ‘I am a god!
I sit on a divine throne in the heart of the sea.’
But you are only a man and not a god,
though you boast that you are a god.
You regard yourself as wiser than Daniel
and think no secret is hidden from you.
With your wisdom and understanding you have amassed great
gold and silver for your treasuries.
Yes, your wisdom has made you very rich,
and your riches have made you very proud.
“Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
Because you think you are as wise as a god,
I will now bring against you a foreign army,
the terror of the nations.
