_ _ Tarshish — Tartessus in Spain, a country famed for various metals, which were exported to Tyre. Much of the “tin” probably was conveyed by the Phoenicians from Cornwall to Tarshish.

_ _ traded in thy fairs — “did barter with thee” [Fairbairn]; from a root, “to leave,” something left in barter for something else.
