26:17 They will sing this lament over you: 1
“‘How you have perished – you have vanished 2 from the seas,

32:23 Their 4 graves are located in the remote slopes of the pit. 5 Her assembly is around her grave, all of them struck down by the sword, those who spread terror in the land of the living.
1 tn Heb “and they will lift up over you a lament and they will say to you.”
2 tn Heb “O inhabitant.” The translation follows the LXX and understands a different Hebrew verb, meaning “cease,” behind the consonantal text. See L. C. Allen, Ezekiel [WBC], 2:72, and D. I. Block, Ezekiel (NICOT), 2:43.

The preposition probably has a specifying function here, drawing attention to Tyre’s inhabitants as the source of the terror mentioned prior to this.

4 tn Heb “whose.”
