Ezekiel 26:7-14


26:7 “For this is what the sovereign Lord says: Take note that 1  I am about to bring King Nebuchadrezzar 2  of Babylon, king of kings, against Tyre from the north, with horses, chariots, and horsemen, an army and hordes of people. 26:8 He will kill your daughters in the field with the sword. He will build a siege wall against you, erect a siege ramp against you, and raise a great shield against you. 26:9 He will direct the blows of his battering rams against your walls and tear down your towers with his weapons. 3  26:10 He will cover you with the dust kicked up by his many horses. 4  Your walls will shake from the noise of the horsemen, wheels, and chariots when he enters your gates like those who invade through a city’s broken walls. 5  26:11 With his horses’ hoofs he will trample all your streets. He will kill your people with the sword, and your strong pillars will tumble down to the ground. 26:12 They will steal your wealth and loot your merchandise. They will tear down your walls and destroy your luxurious 6  homes. Your stones, your trees, and your soil he will throw 7  into the water. 8  26:13 I will silence 9  the noise of your songs; the sound of your harps will be heard no more. 26:14 I will make you a bare rock; you will be a place where fishing nets are spread. You will never be built again, 10  for I, the Lord, have spoken, declares the sovereign Lord.
