A Prophecy Against Moab

1A prophecy against Moab:

Ar in Moab is ruined,

destroyed in a night!

Kir in Moab is ruined,

destroyed in a night!

2Dibon goes up to its temple,

to its high places to weep;

Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba.

Every head is shaved

and every beard cut off.

3In the streets they wear sackcloth;

on the roofs and in the public squares

they all wail,

prostrate with weeping.

4Heshbon and Elealeh cry out,

their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz.

Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out,

and their hearts are faint.


5My heart cries out over Moab;

her fugitives flee as far as Zoar,

as far as Eglath Shelishiyah.

They go up the hill to Luhith,

weeping as they go;

on the road to Horonaim

they lament their destruction.

6The waters of Nimrim are dried up

and the grass is withered;

the vegetation is gone

and nothing green is left.

7So the wealth they have acquired and stored up

they carry away over the Ravine of the Poplars.

8Their outcry echoes along the border of Moab;

their wailing reaches as far as Eglaim,

their lamentation as far as Beer Elim.

9The waters of Dimon are full of blood,

but I will bring still more upon Dimon

a lion upon the fugitives of Moab

and upon those who remain in the land.
