1 I det ellevte År På den første dag i ... månede kom HE ENs Ord til mig således:

2 Menneskesøn! Fordi Tyrus siger om Jerusalem: "Ha, ha! Folkeslagenes Port er knust; den står mig åben; den var rig, men er nu øde!"

3 derfor, så siger den Herre HE EN: Se, jeg kommer over dig, Tyrus, og fører mange Folk imod dig, som når Havet rejser sine Bølger.

4 De skal ødelægge Tyruss Mure og nedbryde Tårnene. Jeg fejer Muldet bort og gør Tyrus til nøgen Klippe;

5 en Tørreplads for Net skal det være ude i Havet, så sandt jeg har talet, lyder det fra den Herre HE EN; og det skal blive et Bytte for Folkene.

6 Dets Døtre på Land skal hugges ned med Sværd; og de skal kende, at jeg er HE EN.

7 Thi så siger den Herre HE EN: Se, nordenfra fører jeg mod Tyrus Kong Nebukadrezar af Babel, Kongernes Konge, med Heste, Vogne og yttere og en vældig Hærskare.

8 Dine Døtre på Land skal han hugge ned med Sværd; han skal bygge Belejringstårne, opkaste Stormvold og rejse Skjoldtag imod dig;

9 sin Murbrækkers Stød skal han rette imod dine Mure og nedbryde dine Tårne med sine Sværd.

10 Hans Heste skal myldre, så Støvet, de rejser, skjuler dig; yttere, Hjul og Vogne skal larme, så dine Mure ryster, når han drager igennem dine Porte, som når man trænger ind i en stormet By.

11 Med sine Hestes Hove skal han nedtrampe alle dine Gader; dit Folk skal han hugge ned med Sværdet og styrte dine stolte Støtter til Jorden.

12 De skal rane din igdom og gøre dine Handelsvarer til Bytte; de skal nedbryde dine Mure og nedrive dine herlige Huse: Sten, Tømmer og Ler skal de kaste i Vandet.

13 Jeg gør Endepå dine brusende Sange, og dine Citres Klang skal ikke mere høres.

14 Jeg gør dig til nøgen Klippe, en Tørreplads for Net skal du være. Aldrig mere skal du bygges, så sandt jeg, HE EN, har talet, lyder det fra den Herre HE EN.

15 siger den Herre HE EN til Tyrus: For sandt, ved dit drønende Fald, ved de såredes Stønnen, når Sværd hugger løs i din Midte, skal Strandene skælve.

16 Ned fra sin Trone stiger hver Fyrste ved Havet, Kapperne lægger de bort, aflægger de brogede Klæder og klæder sig i Sorg; de sidderJorden og skæler uafbrudt, slagne af ædsel over dig.

17 De synger en Klagesang om dig og siger til dig: Ak, du gik under, forsvandt fra Havet, du fejrede By, du, som var vældig på Havet, du og dine Borgere, du, der jog ædsel i alle, som boede der!

18 Nu gribes Strandene af Skælven, den Dag du falder, og Havets Øer forfærdes over din Udgang!

19 Thi så siger den Herre HE EN: Når jeg gør dig til en øde By og lige med affolkede Byer, når jeg fører Verdensdybet over dig, og de vældige Vande skjuler dig,

20 så støder jeg dig ned iblandt dem, der steg ned i Dybet, blandt Fortidens Folk, og lader dig ligge i Underverdenen som ældgamle uiner blandt dem, der steg ned i Dybet, for at du aldrig mere skal bebos eller rejse dig i de levendes Land;

21 jeg giver dig hen til brat Undergang, og det skal være ude med dig; selv om der søges efter dig, skal du aldrig i Evighed findes, lyder det fra den Herre HE EN.
