1 The word of the
LORD came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against the Ammonites, and prophesy
3 And say unto the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord GOD;
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou saidst, Aha, against my
sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the land of Israel,
when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah, when they
went into captivity;
4 Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to the men of the east
for a possession, and they shall set their palaces in thee,
and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit,
and they shall drink thy milk.
5 And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the Ammonites
a couchingplace for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the
6 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast clapped thine
hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with
all thy despite against the land of Israel;
7 Behold, therefore I will stretch out mine hand upon thee,
and will deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will
cut thee off from the people, and I will cause thee to perish
out of the countries: I will destroy thee; and thou shalt know
that I am the LORD.
8 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Moab and Seir do say,
Behold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen;
9 Therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the cities,
from his cities which are on his frontiers, the glory of the
country, Beth-jeshimoth, Baal-meon, and Kiriathaim,
10 Unto the men of the east with the Ammonites, and will give
them in possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered
among the nations.
11 And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know
that I am the LORD.
12 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against
the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended,
and revenged himself upon them;
13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also stretch out
mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it;
and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall
fall by the sword.
14 And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people
Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and
according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith
the Lord GOD.
15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt
by revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart,
to destroy it for the old hatred;
16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will stretch
out mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethims,
and destroy the remnant of the sea coast.
17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious
rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall
lay my vengeance upon them.
1 And it came to
pass in the eleventh year, in the first day of the month, that
the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, because that Tyrus hath said against Jerusalem,
Aha, she is broken that was the gates of the people: she is
turned unto me: I shall be replenished, now she is laid waste:
3 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee,
O Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against thee,
as the sea causeth his waves to come up.
4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down
her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her
like the top of a rock.
5 It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst
of the sea: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD: and it
shall become a spoil to the nations.
6 And her daughters which are in the field shall be slain by
the sword; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
7 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring upon Tyrus
Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the north,
with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and companies,
and much people.
8 He shall slay with the sword thy daughters in the field: and
he shall make a fort against thee, and cast a mount against
thee, and lift up the buckler against thee.
9 And he shall set engines of war against thy walls, and with
his axes he shall break down thy towers.
10 By reason of the abundance of his horses their dust shall
cover thee: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the horsemen,
and of the wheels, and of the chariots, when he shall enter
into thy gates, as men enter into a city wherein is made a breach.
11 With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy
streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong
garrisons shall go down to the ground.
12 And they shall make a spoil of thy riches, and make a prey
of thy merchandise: and they shall break down thy walls, and
destroy thy pleasant houses: and they shall lay thy stones and
thy timber and thy dust in the midst of the water.
13 And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease; and the
sound of thy harps shall be no more heard.
14 And I will make thee like the top of a rock: thou shalt be
a place to spread nets upon; thou shalt be built no more: for
I the LORD have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
15 Thus saith the Lord GOD to Tyrus; Shall not the isles shake
at the sound of thy fall, when the wounded cry, when the slaughter
is made in the midst of thee?
16 Then all the princes of the sea shall come down from their
thrones, and lay away their robes, and put off their broidered
garments: they shall clothe themselves with trembling; they
shall sit upon the ground, and shall tremble at every moment,
and be astonished at thee.
17 And they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and say to
thee, How art thou destroyed, that wast inhabited of seafaring
men, the renowned city, which wast strong in the sea, she and
her inhabitants, which cause their terror to be on all that
18 Now shall the isles tremble in the day of thy fall; yea,
the isles that are in the sea shall be troubled at thy departure.
19 For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a desolate
city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall bring
up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee;
20 When I shall bring thee down with them that descend into
the pit, with the people of old time, and shall set thee in
the low parts of the earth, in places desolate of old, with
them that go down to the pit, that thou be not inhabited; and
I shall set glory in the land of the living;
21 I will make thee a terror, and thou shalt be no more: though
thou be sought for, yet shalt thou never be found again, saith
the Lord GOD.
1 The word of the
LORD came again unto me, saying,
2 Now, thou son of man, take up a lamentation for Tyrus;
3 And say unto Tyrus, O thou that art situate at the entry of
the sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; O Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of perfect
4 Thy borders are in the midst of the seas, thy builders have
perfected thy beauty.
5 They have made all thy ship boards of fir trees of Senir:
they have taken cedars from Lebanon to make masts for thee.
6 Of the oaks of Bashan have they made thine oars; the company
of the Ashurites have made thy benches of ivory, brought out
of the isles of Chittim.
7 Fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was that which thou
spreadest forth to be thy sail; blue and purple from the isles
of Elishah was that which covered thee.
8 The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were thy mariners: thy
wise men, O Tyrus, that were in thee, were thy pilots.
9 The ancients of Gebal and the wise men thereof were in thee
thy calkers: all the ships of the sea with their mariners were
in thee to occupy thy merchandise.
10 They of Persia and of Lud and of Phut were in thine army,
thy men of war: they hanged the shield and helmet in thee; they
set forth thy comeliness.
11 The 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
12 Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all
kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded
in thy fairs.
13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy merchants: they
traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.
14 They of the house of Togarmah traded in thy fairs with horses
and horsemen and mules.
15 The men of Dedan were thy merchants; many isles were the
merchandise of thine hand: they brought thee for a present horns
of ivory and ebony.
16 Syria was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of the
wares of thy making: they occupied in thy fairs with emeralds,
purple, and broidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and agate.
17 Judah, and the land of Israel, they were thy merchants: they
traded in thy market wheat of Minnith, and Pannag, and honey,
and oil, and balm.
18 Damascus was thy merchant in the multitude of the wares of
thy making, for the multitude of all riches; in the wine of
Helbon, and white wool.
19 Dan also and Javan going to and fro occupied in thy fairs:
bright iron, cassia, and calamus, were in thy market.
20 Dedan was thy merchant in precious clothes for chariots.
21 Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they occupied with
thee in lambs, and rams, and goats: in these were they thy merchants.
22 The merchants of Sheba and Raamah, they were thy merchants:
they occupied in thy fairs with chief of all spices, and with
all precious stones, and gold.
23 Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Assur,
and Chilmad, were thy merchants.
24 These were thy merchants in all sorts of things, in blue
clothes, and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel,
bound with cords, and made of cedar, among thy merchandise.
25 The ships of Tarshish did sing of thee in thy market: and
thou wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of
26 Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters: the east
wind hath broken thee in the midst of the seas.
27 Thy riches, 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, and in all thy company
which is in the midst of thee, shall fall into the midst of
the seas in the day of thy ruin.
28 The suburbs shall shake at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.
29 And all that handle the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots
of the sea, shall come down from their ships, they shall stand
upon the land;
30 And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and
shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads,
they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:
31 And they shall make themselves utterly bald for thee, and
gird them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for thee with
bitterness of heart and bitter wailing.
32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for
thee, and lament over thee, saying, What city is like Tyrus,
like the destroyed in the midst of the sea?
33 When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst
many people; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the
multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise.
34 In the time when thou shalt be broken by the seas in the
depths of the waters thy merchandise and all thy company in
the midst of thee shall fall.
35 All the inhabitants of the isles shall be astonished at thee,
and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be troubled
in their countenance.
36 The merchants among the people shall hiss at thee; thou shalt
be a terror, and never shalt be any more.
