Be silent, you people of the island and you merchants of Sidon, whom the seafarers have enriched.
Be silent, you inhabitants of the coastland, You merchants of Sidon; Your messengers crossed the sea
Mourn in silence, you people of the coast and you merchants of Sidon. Your traders crossed the sea,
Hold your tongue, you who live on the seacoast, merchants of Sidon. Your people sailed the deep seas, buying and selling,
Send out a cry of grief, you men of the sea-land, traders of Zidon, who go over the sea, whose representatives are on great waters;
Be still, O inhabitants of the coast, O merchants of Sidon, your messengers crossed over the sea
Be still, you inhabitants of the coastland, You merchants of Sidon, Whom those who cross the sea have filled.
