The King of Tyre

There was an Emerald king,

Who deceived himself to claim,

“I am the seated God.”

 

Tyre’s prince besought one worthy for himself

To destroy. He searched roaming like a lion.

Word has reached a prophet of the LORD

That Tyrus speaks to consume that Emerald king.

To, to consume,—therefore, LORD

I beseech Thee, cause the little one to repent before

He becomes the so aforementioned King.

 

LORD, Tyre’s king seeks a consort

And Tyre’s Prince a concubine.

LORD, a righteous man speaks

With words, to a King of ashes and dung:—

Repent, O’ Barren of one of words.

For a desert land shall you be cast

If you do not repent.
