You destroyed them like ships of Tarshish shattered by an east wind.
King James Bible
Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
American Standard Version
With the east wind Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish.
Young's Literal Translation
By an east wind Thou shiverest ships of Tarshish.
Psalm 48:7 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish - Calmet thinks this may refer to the discomfiture of Cambyses, who came to destroy the land of Judea. "This is apparently," says he, "the same tempest which struck dismay into the land-forces of Cambyses, and wrecked his fleet which was on the coasts of the Mediterranean sea, opposite to his army near the port of Acco, or the Ptolemais; for Cambyses had his quarters at Ecbatana, at the foot of Mount Carmel; and his army was encamped in the valley of Jezreel." Ships of Tarshish he conjectures to have been large stout vessels, capable of making the voyage of Tarsus, in Cilicia.
