Isa. 23 :1 23:1 Jehovah now makes the aearth desolate and lays it waste; He distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants:
Isa. 23 :2 23:2 Hush, you inhabitants of the coastland,
You, whom the merchants of Sidon,
Who cross the sea, have replenished.
Isa. 23 :3 23:3 And by way of many waters
The grain of Shihor, the harvest of the Nile, was her revenue;
And she was profit to the nations.
Isa. 23 :4 23:4 Be ashamed, O Sidon, for the sea has spoken,
The stronghold of the sea, saying,
I have not been in labor nor given birth;
Neither have I brought up young men,
Nor have I raised virgins.
Isa. 23 :5 23:5 When the report reaches Egypt,
They will writhe in pain at the report concerning Tyre.
Isa. 23 :6 23:6 Cross over to Tarshish;
Howl, you inhabitants of the coastland.
Isa. 23 :7 23:7 Is this your jubilant city,
Whose antiquity is from the days of antiquity,
Whose feet carried her off afar to sojourn?
Isa. 23 :8 23:8 Who has purposed this
Against Tyre, the giver of crowns,
Whose merchants were princes,
Whose traders were the honorable of the earth?
Isa. 23 :9 23:9 Jehovah of hosts has purposed it,
To defile the pride of all beauty,
To bring into contempt all the honorable of the earth.

There is no more restraint.

He has shaken kingdoms.

To destroy its strongholds.

O crushed virgin daughter of Sidon.
Arise; cross over to Kittim —
There also you will have no rest.

For your stronghold is destroyed.

Compass the city,
Forgotten harlot.
Play well;
Abound in song,
That you may be remembered.
Isa. 23 :17 23:17 And at the end of the seventy years Jehovah will visit Tyre. And she will return to the wages of her harlotry and will be a harlot to all the kingdoms of the earth on land’s surface.
