Isaiah 23:9-11 Expanded Bible (EXB)

It was the Lord ·All-Powerful [Almighty; of Heaven’s Armies; T of hosts] who planned this.
    He decided to ·make these proud people unimportant [L bring down the pride of all her glory/splendor];
    he decided to ·disgrace [humble] ·those who were greatly respected [L the honored/renowned of the earth].
10 Go through[a] [or Cultivate; Till] your land, ·people [L daughter] of Tarshish [v. 1],
    like ·the Nile goes through Egypt [or they do along the Nile].
    There is no ·harbor [or marketplace; or restraint; or strength] for you now!
11 The Lord has stretched his hand over the sea
    and made its kingdoms tremble.
He commands that Canaan’s
    ·strong, walled cities [fortresses; strongholds] be destroyed.
