God’s Message About Tyre

23 This is a message[a] about Tyre:

Ships traveling from Cyprus heard this message:
    “Cry, you ships from Tarshish[b]!
    Your harbor has been destroyed.”

You people living near the sea, mourn in silence.
    The merchants of Sidon sent traders across the sea
    and filled the city with riches.
They traveled the seas looking for grain.
    The men from Tyre bought grain that grows near the Nile River
    and sold it to other nations.


  1. Isaiah 23:1 message Or “burden.”
  2. Isaiah 23:1 ships from Tarshish This is probably a special type of cargo ship. Also in verse 14.
