NASB — Isaiah 23 — KJV

The Fall of Tyre

1 The Ioracle concerning aTyre.
  Wail, O bships of cTarshish,
  For [Tyre] is destroyed, without house [or] IIdharbor;
  It is reported to them from the land of IIIeCyprus.
  2 aBe silent, you inhabitants of the coastland,
  You merchants of Sidon;
  IYour messengers crossed the sea
  3 And [were] on many waters.
  aThe grain of the IbNile, the harvest of the River was her revenue;
  And she was the cmarket of nations.
  4 Be ashamed, O aSidon;
  For the sea speaks, the stronghold of the sea, saying,
  “I have neither travailed nor given birth,
  I have neither brought up young men [nor] reared virgins.”
  5 When the report [reaches] Egypt,
  They will be in aanguish at the report of Tyre.
  6 Pass over to aTarshish;
  Wail, O inhabitants of the coastland.
  7 Is this your ajubilant [city],
  Whose origin is from antiquity,
  Whose feet used to carry her to Icolonize distant places?

13 ¶ Behold, the land of the Chaldeans—this is the people [which] was not; aAssyria appointed it for bdesert creatures—they erected their siege towers, they stripped its palaces, cthey made it a ruin.
  14 Wail, O aships of Tarshish,
  For your stronghold is destroyed.
15 Now in that day Tyre will be forgotten for aseventy years like the days of one king. At the end of seventy years it will happen to Tyre as [in] the song of the harlot:
  16 Take [your] harp, walk about the city,
  O forgotten harlot;
  Pluck the strings skillfully, sing many songs,
  That you may be remembered.
17 It will come about at athe end of seventy years that the LORD will visit Tyre. Then she will go back to her harlot’s wages and will bplay the harlot with all the kingdoms Ion the face of the earth. 18 Her again and her harlot’s wages will be bset apart to the LORD; it will not be stored up or hoarded, but her gain will become sufficient food and choice attire for those who dwell in the presence of the LORD.

The miserable overthrow of Tyre.

1 ¶ The burden of Tyre. Howl, ye ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Chittim it is revealed to them. 2 Be still, ye inhabitants of the isle; thou whom the merchants of Zidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished. 3 And by great waters the seed of Sihor, the harvest of the river, [is] her revenue; and she is a mart of nations. 4 Be thou ashamed, O Zidon: for the sea hath spoken, [even] the strength of the sea, saying, I travail not, nor bring forth children, neither do I nourish up young men, [nor] bring up virgins. 5 As at the report concerning Egypt, [so] shall they be sorely pained at the report of Tyre. 6 Pass ye over to Tarshish; howl, ye inhabitants of the isle. 7 [Is] this your joyous [city], whose antiquity [is] of ancient days? her own feet shall carry her afar off to sojourn. 8 Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning [city], whose merchants [are] princes, whose traffickers [are] the honourable of the earth? 9 The LORD of hosts hath purposed it, to stain the pride of all glory, [and] to bring into contempt all the honourable of the earth. 10 Pass through thy land as a river, O daughter of Tarshish: [there is] no more strength. 11 He stretched out his hand over the sea, he shook the kingdoms: the LORD hath given a commandment against the merchant [city], to destroy the strong holds thereof. 12 And he said, Thou shalt no more rejoice, O thou oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon: arise, pass over to Chittim; there also shalt thou have no rest. 13 Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, [till] the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; [and] he brought it to ruin. 14 Howl, ye ships of Tarshish: for your strength is laid waste. 15 And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot. 16 Take an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered.

Their unhappy return.

17 ¶ And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth. 18 And her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to the LORD: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for them that dwell before the LORD, to eat sufficiently, and for durable clothing.
