The destruction of Tyre (Ezek 26:3-26:5)

“Therefore

Thus says Yahweh God!

‘See!

I am against you!

O Tyre!

I will hurl

Many nations

Against you,

Just as the sea

Hurls it waves.

They shall destroy

The walls

Of Tyre.

They shall break down

Its towers.

I will scrape

Its soil from it.

I will make it

A bare rock.

It shall become,

In the midst

Of the sea,

A place

For spreading nets.

I have spoken.’

Says Yahweh God.”

Yahweh, via Ezekiel, was against Tyre. He wanted to send many nations against this city. He wanted this town destroyed, just like roaring seas hurling waves against their walls. He wanted their walls and towers destroyed. Thus, he could scrape this city from its soil, making it a bare rock. Instead of a city, it would become a place in the middle of the sea where people would spread fishing nets. Yahweh God had clearly spoken.
