The burden of Moab. Because in the night Ar of Moab is laid waste,27 [and] brought to silence;8 because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste,27 [and] brought to silence;8
He is gone up1 to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl55 over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads [shall be] baldness, [and] every beard cut off.7
In their streets they shall gird1 themselves with sackcloth: on the tops of their houses, and in their streets, every one shall howl,55 weeping abundantly.6
And Heshbon shall cry,4 and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard8 [even] unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers7 of Moab shall cry out;55 his life shall be grievous1 unto him.
My heart shall cry out4 for Moab; his fugitives [shall flee] unto Zoar, an heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up;4 for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise up34 a cry of destruction.
For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away,1 the grass faileth,1 there is no green thing.
Therefore the abundance they have gotten,1 and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away4 to the brook of the willows.
For the cry is gone round about52 the borders of Moab; the howling thereof unto Eglaim, and the howling thereof unto Beerelim.
For the waters of Dimon shall be full1 of blood: for I will bring4 more12 upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapeth of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land.
