He will slay thy people with the sword; and level to the ground the confidence of 12 thy strength; and make a prey of thine army, and a spoil of thy wealth; and break down thy walls and demolish thy lovely houses; and thy stones and thy timbers and thy rubbish he will throw into the midst of the sea. 13 And he will put an end to the multitude of thy musicians; and the sound of thy psalteries shall no more be heard. 14 I will indeed make thee a bare rock. Thou shalt be a place for drying nets, thou shalt never be rebuilded any more; for I the Lord have spoken, saith the Lord. 15 For thus saith the Lord, Lord, to Sor: At the sound of thy fall; at the groans of thy wounded, when the sword is drawn in the midst of thee, shall not the islands quake? 16 Yes, from their thrones will come down all the chiefs of the maritime nations, and they will take their crowns from their heads, and strip off their embroidered robes.
