The burden of Tyre.
Howl, you ships of Tarshish!
For it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in.
From the land of Kittim it is revealed to them. Bible

“burden.” The word of the Lord can be a burden to the prophet, and then, when it is spoken, can be a burden to the people. It might have been more clear in the English to say “burdensome message” instead of “burden,” but the Hebrew word is “burden.” [For more information on “burden,” see commentary on Malachi 1:1].
