   1: The word about Tyre. Let a cry of sorrow go up, O ships of Tarshish, because your strong place is made waste; on the way back from the land of Kittim the news is given to them.
   2: Send out a cry of grief, you men of the sea-land, traders of Zidon, who go over the sea, whose representatives are on great waters;
   3: Who get in the seed of Shihor, whose wealth is the trade of the nations.
   4: Be shamed, O Zidon: for the sea, the strong place of the sea has said, I have not been with child, or given birth; I have not taken care of young men, or kept watch over the growth of virgins.
   5: When the news comes to Egypt they will be bitterly pained at the fate of Tyre.
   6: Go over to Tarshish; give cries of sorrow, O men of the sea-land.
   7: Is this the town which was full of joy, whose start goes back to times long past, whose wanderings took her into far-off countries?
   8: By whom was this purposed against Tyre, the crowning town, whose traders are chiefs, whose business men are honoured in the land?
   9: It was the purpose of the Lord of armies to put pride to shame, to make sport of the glory of those who are honoured in the earth.
   10: Let your land be worked with the plough, O daughter of Tarshish; there is no longer any harbour.
   11: His hand is stretched out over the sea, the kingdoms are shaking: the Lord has given orders about Canaan, to make waste its strong places.
   12: And he said, There is no more joy for you, O crushed virgin daughter of Zidon: up! go over to Kittim; even there you will have no rest.
   13: ...
   14: Let a cry of sorrow go up, O ships of Tarshish: because your strong place is made waste.
   15: And it will be in that day that Tyre will go out of mind for seventy years, that is, the days of one king: after the end of seventy years it will be for Tyre as in the song of the loose woman.
   16: Take an instrument of music, go about the town, O loose woman who has gone out from the memory of man; make sweet melody with songs, so that you may come back to men's minds.
   17: And it will be after the end of seventy years, that the Lord will have mercy on Tyre, and she will go back to her trade, acting as a loose woman with all the kingdoms of the world on the face of the earth.
   18: And her goods and her trade will be holy to the Lord: they will not be kept back or stored up; for her produce will be for those living in the Lord's land, to give them food for their needs, and fair clothing.
