Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
"Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor hard against Tyre; every head was made bald and every shoulder was rubbed bare. But he and his army had no wages from Tyre for the labor that he had performed against it."

King James Bible
Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army to serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald, and every shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against it:

Holman Christian Standard Bible
Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon made his army labor strenuously against Tyre. Every head was made bald and every shoulder chafed, but he and his army received no compensation from Tyre for the labor he expended against it.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Nebuchadrezzar

Ezekiel 26:7-12 For thus said the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring on Tyrus Nebuchadrezzar …

Jeremiah 25:9 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, said …

Jeremiah 27:6 And now have I given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar …

a great Nebuchadnezzar was thirteen years employed in the siege. During this long siege, the soldiers must have endured great hardships; their heads would become bald by constantly wearing their helmets; and their shoulders be peeled by carrying materials to and from the works.

yet Jerome asserts, on the authority of the Assyrian histories, that when the Trojans saw their city must fall, they put their most valuable effects on board their ships, and fled with them to the islands, and their colonies, `so that the city being taken, Nebuchadnezzar found nothing worthy of his labour.'
