Ezekiel 27:30-32 Common English Bible (CEB)

30 Loudly they cry,
    bitterly they wail,
    and they put dust on their heads
    and cover themselves with ashes.
31 They cut off all their hair
    and put on mourning clothes.
In despair they weep for you,
    and bitterly perform the mourning rites.
32 In their lamentation they raise a lament for you;
    they sing lamentions over you:
        “Who was like Tyre, silenced in the middle of the sea?”

Ezekiel 27:30-32 New International Version (NIV)

30 They will raise their voice
    and cry bitterly over you;
they will sprinkle dust on their heads
    and roll in ashes.
31 They will shave their heads because of you
    and will put on sackcloth.
They will weep over you with anguish of soul
    and with bitter mourning.
32 As they wail and mourn over you,
    they will take up a lament concerning you:
“Who was ever silenced like Tyre,
    surrounded by the sea?
