Ezekiel 27:28-30


27:28 At the sound of your captains’ cry the waves will surge; 1 

27:29 They will descend from their ships – all who handle the oar,

the sailors and all the sea captains – they will stand on the land.

27:30 They will lament loudly 2  over you and cry bitterly.

They will throw dust on their heads and roll in the ashes; 3 

1 tn Compare this phrase to Isa 57:20 and Amos 8:8. See M. Greenberg, Ezekiel (AB), 2:561.

2 tn Heb “make heard over you with their voice.”

3 tn Note a similar expression to “roll in the ashes” in Mic 1:10.
