The oracle concerning aMoab. Surely in a night bAr of Moab is devastated and ruined; Surely in a night Kir of Moab is devastated and ruined.
They have gone up to the temple and to aDibon, even to the high places to weep. Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba; Everyone's head is bbald and every beard is cut off.
In their streets they have girded themselves with asackcloth; bOn their housetops and in their squares Everyone is wailing, cdissolved in tears.
aHeshbon 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 aZoar and Eglath-shelishiyah, For they go up the bascent of Luhith weeping; Surely on the road to Horonaim they raise a cry of distress cover their ruin.
For the awaters of Nimrim are desolate. Surely the grass is withered, the tender grass died out, There is bno green thing.
Therefore the aabundance 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 alion upon the fugitives of Moab and upon the remnant of the land.
