The oracle concerning Moab. Surely in a night
Ar of Moab is devastated and ruined; Surely in a night Kir of Moab is devastated
They have gone up to the temple and to Dibon,
even to the high places to weep. Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba; Everyone's head
is bald and every beard is cut off.
In their streets they have girded themselves
with sackcloth; On their housetops and in their squares Everyone is wailing, dissolved
Heshbon and Elealeh also cry out, Their voice
is heard all the way to Jahaz; Therefore the armed men of Moab cry aloud; His
soul trembles within him.
My heart cries out for Moab; His fugitives are
as far as Zoar and Eglath-shelishiyah, For they go up the ascent of Luhith weeping;
Surely on the road to Horonaim they raise a cry of distress over their ruin.
For the waters of Nimrim are desolate. Surely
the grass is withered, the tender grass died out, There is no green thing.
Therefore the abundance which they have acquired
and stored up They carry off over the brook of Arabim.
For the cry of distress has gone around the
territory of Moab, Its wail goes as far as Eglaim and its wailing even to Beer-elim.
For the waters of Dimon are full of blood; Surely
I will bring added woes upon Dimon, A lion upon the fugitives of Moab and upon
the remnant of the land.
