The riches and large commerce of Tyrus. Her great and irrecoverable fall.
THE word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
qThe men of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round about, and the Gammadims were in thy towers: they hanged their shields upon thy walls round about; they have made thy beauty perfect.
10Syria was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of the wares of 11thy making: they occupied in thy fairs with emeralds, purple, and *broidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and 12agate.
These were thy merchants in 17all sorts of things, in blue 18clothes, and *broidered work, and in chests of rich *apparel, bound with cords, and made of cedar, among thy merchandise.
Thy lriches, and thy fairs, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and thy pilots, thy calkers, and the occupiers of thy merchandise, and all thy men of war, that are in thee, 21and in all thy company which is in the midst of thee, mshall fall into the 22midst of the seas in the day of thy ruin.
qAnd shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and shall cry bitterly, and shall rcast up dust upon their heads, they shall swallow themselves in the ashes:
