The island of Rhodes (Ezek 27:15-27:15)

“The men of Rhodes

Traded with you.

Many coastlands

Were your own

Special markets.

They brought you

In payment

Ivory tusks

With ebony.”

Ezekiel continued with his tour of the trading partners of Tyre.  Rhodes was another Mediterranean island northeast of Crete. They traded with Tyre. Many of the coastland towns were specialty markets for Tyre. Some even traded ivory and ebony with Tyre.
