Ezekiel 27 recites the places that did business with Tyre and the merchandise that was traded. In the map and chart we have used colors to differentiate between the types of items traded in Tyre, as specified in the text: red for imports, green for exports or re-exports, purple for so-called contract payments—i.e., the price paid by merchants to pass through Tyre—and black for types of trade not specified.1
Ezekiel 27:3b–25a, NRSV
O Tyre, you have said, “I am perfect in beauty.” 4 Your borders are in the heart of the seas; your builders made perfect your beauty. 5 They made all your planks of fir trees from Senir; they took a cedar from Lebanon to make a mast for you. 6 From oaks of Bashan they made your oars; they made your deck of pines from the coasts of Cyprus, inlaid with ivory. 7 Of fine embroidered linen from Egypt was your sail, serving as your ensign; blue and purple from the coasts of Elishah was your awning. 8 The inhabitants of Sidon and Arvad were your rowers; skilled men of Zemer were within you, they were your pilots. 9 The elders of Gebal and its artisans were within you, caulking your seams; all the ships of the sea with their mariners were within you, to barter for your wares. 10Paras and Lud and Put were in your army, your mighty warriors; they hung shield and helmet in you; they gave you splendor. 11 Men of Arvad and Helech were on your walls all around; men of Gamad were at your towers. They hung their quivers all around your walls; they made perfect your beauty.
