EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Against thee.—Rather, over thee. The commercial nations were not inimical to Tyre, but rather caused their wail for her to be heard over the seas where she had been engulphed. The usual signs of mourning are poetically attributed to them (Ezekiel 27:30-31), and then a dirge is put in their mouths (Ezekiel 27:32-34).Shall cause their voice to be heard; with greatest cries they shall make the country echo forth their sorrows.
Against thee; either standing on higher ground over against the shipwrecked city; or rather,
for thee, those Eastern people did use to lift up their voice in mourning, Job 2:12 Jeremiah 31:15 Lamentations 2:18,19 Zec 11:3.
Shall cry bitterly; their weeping shall be from a deep sense of the misery of their friends. and this expressed by bitter cries; so such sorrow is expressed, Zephaniah 1:14 Isaiah 22:4 33:7.
Shall cast up dust upon their heads; another expression of great distress and sorrow, proper to those countries, Joshua 7:6 Job 2:12 Lamentations 2:10 Jeremiah 6:26.
Wallow themselves in the ashes; which they used to do in their greatest mourning, as Micah 1:10 Jeremiah 6:26. As every country hath its peculiar manners and customs in mourning, so had these customs that expressed most vehement sorrows in gestures which we are not accustomed to. Revelation 18:9,
and shall cry bitterly; with great weeping, howling, and shrieking:
and they shall cast dust upon their heads; a custom used in the eastern countries, in time of mourning and sorrow; see Revelation 18:19,
and they shall wallow themselves in ashes: or roll themselves in them, another custom used in mourning; see Jeremiah 6:26.And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:
