Yahweh, via Joel, proclaimed that there would be a holy war between the various nations and Israel. They should prepare for war with their warriors, so that the soldiers should get ready. They should turn their plows into swords and their pruning hooks into spears. Even the weak ones should say that they were warriors.
The rowers of the Tyre ships brought them into the high seas. The east wind then wrecked them in the heart of the sea. All their riches, goods, and merchandise sank. Their sailors, pilots, caulk workers, trade merchant dealers, their warriors, and all their company would sink into the heart of the sea on the day of their ruin. Tyre, its ships, its people, and all its goods would sink into the choppy Mediterranean Sea.
