“And they shall destroy the walles of Tyrus, and breake downe her towres: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rocke.”
King James Version (KJV)
1. And it came to passe in the eleuenth yeere, in the first day of the moneth, that the word of the Lord came vnto me, saying, 2. Sonne of man, because that Tyrus hath said against Ierusalem, Aha, she is broken that was the gates of the people, she is turned vnto me, I shalbe 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 vp against thee, as the sea causeth his waues to come vp. 4. And they shall destroy the walles of Tyrus, and breake downe her towres: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rocke. 5. It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the middest of the sea: for I haue spoken it, saith the Lord God, and it shall become a spoile to the nations. 6. And her daughters which are in the field shall be slaine by the sword, and they shall know that I am the Lord. 7. ¶ For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will bring vpon Tyrus, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the North, with horses, and with charets, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people.
