Isaiah 23

Isa 23:1 The burden of Tyre: Howl, ships of Tarshish! For it is ruined, without house, without entrance. It is revealed to them from the land of Kittim.
Isa 23:2 Be still, ones living in the coast, trader of Sidon crossing the sea; they have filled you.
Isa 23:3 And by great waters, the seed of Sihor and the harvest of the river Nile was her revenue; and she a mart of nations.
Isa 23:4 Be ashamed, Sidon, for the sea has spoken, the strength of the sea, saying, I have not travailed, nor brought forth, I have not nourished young men nor raised up virgins.
Isa 23:5 As the report comes to Egypt, so they shall be grieved at the report of Tyre.
Isa 23:6 Pass over Tarshish; howl, people of the coast!
Isa 23:7 Is this your exulting city from days of her old age? Her own feet carry it far away to stay.
Isa 23:8 Who has counseled this against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are rulers, whose traders are the weighty of the earth?
Isa 23:9 Jehovah of Hosts has counseled it, to stain the pride of all glory, to bring all the honored of the earth into contempt.
Isa 23:10 Pass through your land as the Nile, O daughter of Tarshish; there is no more strength.
Isa 23:11 He stretched His hand over the sea; He shook kingdoms. Jehovah has made a decree against the merchant city, to destroy its forts.
Isa 23:12 And He said, You shall rejoice no more, oppressed one, virgin daughter of Sidon. Arise, cross over to Cyprus, even there is no rest to you.
Isa 23:13 Behold, the land of the Chaldeans! This people did not exist! Assyria founded it for those who live in the desert. They set up their siege towers; they lay bare its palaces; they appointed it to be a ruin.
Isa 23:14 Howl, ships of Tarshish! For your fortress is ruined.
Isa 23:15 And it shall be in that day that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king. At the end of seventy years, it will be as the song of a harlot to Tyre.
Isa 23:16 Take a harp; go about the city, O forgotten harlot. Do well to play; make many songs, that you may be remembered.
Isa 23:17 And it will be, after the end of seventy years, Jehovah will visit Tyre; and she shall return to her hire, and will fornicate with all the kingdoms of the earth on the face of the earth.
Isa 23:18 And her goods and her wages shall be holiness to Jehovah; it shall not be hoarded nor stored; for her goods shall be for those who dwell before Jehovah, to eat enough, and for a choice covering.

On this day...
