Prophecy about Tyre  ...
"This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, O Tyre, and I will bring many nations against you, like the sea casting up its waves. They will destroy the walls of Tyre and pull down her towers; I will scrape away her rubble and make her a bare rock. Out in the sea she will become a place to spread fishnets, for I have spoken . . . She will become plunder for the nations."   Ezekiel 26: 3 - 5
    "They will plunder your wealth and loot your merchandise; they will break down your walls and demolish your fine houses and throw your stones, tinder and rubble into the sea . . . I will make you a bare rock, and you will become a place to spread fishnets. You will never be rebuilt, for I the Lord have spoken." Ezekiel 26: 12 - 14
  Events precisely fulfilled this prophecy in every detail. Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon attacked Tyre. It took 13 years to destroy the land part of Tyre. The final details took place when Alexander the Great literally scraped the land part of Tyre bare like a rock. He dumped the rubble into the sea to build a causeway a half mile long to attack the part of Tyre surrounded by water. The city has never been rebuilt.
