Behold JEHOVAH will cast, thée out,
And to the house of Judah;
CHAP. 1 THE ORACLE CONCERNING TYRE.
HOWL, O) ye ships of Tarshish!
2 Be silent, O ye inhabitants of the sea-coast: . The merchants of Sidon, they that pass over the sea,
crowded thee. 3 And the seed of the Nile, growing from abundant wa
ters, The harvest of the river, was her revenue: And she became the mart of the nations. 4 Be thou ashamed, O Sidon ; for the sea hath spoken,
Even the mighty fortress of the sea, saying:
dren'; As if I had not nourished youths, nor educated virgins. 5 When the tidings shall reach Egypt,
They shall be seized with anguish at the tidings of Tyre. 6 Pass ye over to Tarshish; howl, O ye inhabitants of the
sea-coast! 7 Is this your triumphant city; whose antiquity is of the
earliest date? Her own feet bear her far away to sojourn. 8 Who hath purposed this against Tyre, who dispensed
crowns; Whose merchants were princes; whose traders were
nobles of the land? 9 JEHOVAH God of Hosts hath counselled it;
To stain the pride of all beauty;
To make contemptible all the nobles of the earth. 10 Overflow thy land, like a river, . O daughter of Tarshish; the mound (that kept in thy
waters] is no more. 1] He hath stretched his hand over the sea; he hath shaken
the kingdoms : JEHOVAH hath issued a command concerning Canaan,
that they should destroy her strong places.
O thou defloured virgin, the daughter of Sidon!
This people was of no account;
They raised the watch-towers, they set up the palaces
This people hath reduced her to a ruin.
That Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years,
Tyre shall sing, as the harlot singeth.
Strike the lyre artfully; multiply the song; that thou
mayest again be remembered.
JEHOVAII will take account of Tyre:
That are upon the face of the earth.
It shall not be treasured, nor shall it be kept in store;

waste; He even turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad
As with the servant, so with his master; .
As with the usurer, so with the giver of usury:
For JEHOVAH hath spoken this word.
The world languisheth, it withereth;
5 The land is even polluted under her inhabitants ; For they have transgressed the law, they have changed
Because they are guilty, that dwell in her.
And few are the mortals that are left in her.
All, that were glad of heart, sigh. 8 The joyful sound of the tabour ceaseth :
The noise of exultation is no more;
The joyful sound of the harp ceaseth: . 9 With songs they shall no more drink wine ;
The palm-wine shall be bitter to them that drink it. 10 The city is broken down; it is desolate:
Every house is obstructed, so that no one can enter. 11 There is a cry in the streets for wine ;
All gladness is passed away;
The joy of the whole land is banished. 12 Desolation is left in the city;
And with a great tumult the gate is battered down. 13 Yea thus shall it be in the very centre of the land, in
the midst of the people ; As the shaking of the olive; as the gleaning when the
vintage is finished. 14 But these shall lift up their voice, they shall sing;
The waters shall resound with the exultation of JEHO
VAH. 15 Wherefore in the distant coasts, glorify ye JEHOVAH; In the distant coasts of the sea, the name of JEHOVAH,
the God of Israel. 16 From the uttermost part of the land, we have heard
songs, Glory to the righteous ! But I said, Alas, my wretchedness, my wretchedness! Wo is me! the plunderers plunder; Yea the plunderers still continue their cruel depreda
17 The terror, the pit, and the snare,
Are upon thee, O inhabitant of the land :
He shall fall into the pit;
He shall be taken in the snare :
And the foundations of the earth tremble.
The land is utterly shattered to pieces ;
The land is violently moved out of her place;
And moveth this way and that, like a lodge for a night:
And she shall fall, and rise no more.
JEHOVAH shall summon on high the host that is on high;
And on earth the kings of the earth :
And, after many days, account shall be taken of them. 23 And the moon shall be confounded, and the sun shall

CHAP. 1 O JEHOVAH, thou art my God :
I will exalt thee; I will praise thy name :
Counsels of old time, promises immutably true.
The strongly fortified citadel a ruin:
The city of the formidable nations shall fear thee :
A defence to the needy in his distress :
shalt thou bring low;
