PROPHECY AGAINST TYRE

1The burden against Tyre. Wail, you ships of Tarshish! For it is laid waste, So that there is no house, no harbor; From the land of Cyprus it is revealed to them.

2Be still, you inhabitants of the coastland, You merchants of Sidon, Whom those who cross the sea have filled.

3And on great waters the grain of Shihor, The harvest of the River, is her revenue; And she is a marketplace for the nations.
