Isaiah 23 ©
1 The miserable overthrow of Tyre. 15 Her restoration after seventy years, and her whoredoms.
THE aburden of bTyre. Howl, ye ships of cTarshish; for dit is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of 1Chittim it is revealed to them.
Be 2still, ye inhabitants of the isle; thou whom the emerchants of Zidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.
Be thou ashamed, O Zidon: for the sea hath spoken, even the strength of the sea, saying, hI *travail not, nor bring forth children, neither do I nourish up young men, nor bring up virgins.
As iat the report concerning Egypt, so shall they be j*sorely pained at the report of Tyre.
Is this your mjoyous city, whose antiquity is of ancient days? her own feet shall carry her 3afar off to *sojourn.
The LORD of hosts hath purposed it, 4to stain the pride of all glory, and to bring into contempt all the honourable of the earth.
Pass through thy land as a river, O daughter of Tarshish: there is no more 5strength.
And he said, pThou shalt no more rejoice, O thou oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon: arise, pass over to Chittim; there also shalt thou have no rest.
Take an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered.
And wher merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to the LORD: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for them that dwell before the LORD, to xeat sufficiently, and for 10durable clothing.
