Oracle Against Tyre

1 The oracle concerning Tyre.
Wail, O ships of Tarshish,
For Tyre is destroyed, without house or harbor;
It is reported to them from the land of Cyprus.
2 Be silent, you inhabitants of the coastland,
You merchants of Sidon;
Your messengers crossed the sea

The grain of the Nile, the harvest of the River was her revenue;
And she was the market of nations.
