Isaiah 23:15

Context

23:15 At that time 1  Tyre will be forgotten for seventy years, 2  the typical life span of a king. 3  At the end of seventy years Tyre will try to attract attention again, like the prostitute in the popular song: 4 

1 tn Or “in that day” (KJV). The verb that introduces this verse serves as a discourse particle and is untranslated; see note on “in the future” in 2:2.

2 sn The number seventy is probably used in a stereotypical, nonliteral sense here to indicate a long period of time that satisfies completely the demands of God’s judgment.

3 tn Heb “like the days of a king.”

4 tn Heb “At the end of seventy years it will be for Tyre like the song of the prostitute.”
