Amos 1:10

But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyrus, which shall devour the palaces thereof.

But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyrus,.... An enemy to destroy the walls of it: this was done either by Shalmaneser king of the Assyrians, in the times of Eulaeus king of the Tyrians, of whose expedition against it Josephus {s} makes mention: or by Nebuchadnezzar, who took it after thirteen years' siege of it, in the time of Ithobalus {t}: or by Alexander, by whom it was taken, as Curtius {u} relates, after it had been besieged seven months:

which shall devour the palaces thereof; of the governor, the great men and merchants in it. Alexander ordered all to be slain but those that fled to the temples, and fire to be put to the houses; which made it a most desolate place, as the above historian has recorded.
