An Oracle Concerning Moab

1This is an oracle concerning Moab:

Ar in Moab is ruined,

destroyed in a night!

Kir in Moab is devastated,

destroyed in a night!

2Dibon goes up to its temple

to weep at its high places.

Moab wails over Nebo,

as well as over Medeba.

Every head is shaved,

every beard is cut off.

3In its streets they wear sackcloth;

on the rooftops and in the public squares

they all wail,

falling down weeping.

4Heshbon and Elealeh cry out;

their voices are heard as far as Jahaz.

Therefore the soldiers of Moab cry out;

their souls tremble within.

5My heart cries out over Moab;

her fugitives flee as far as Zoar,

as far as Eglath-shelishiyah;

with weeping they ascend the slope of Luhith;

they lament their destruction on the road to Horonaim.

6The waters of Nimrim are dried up;

the grass is withered,

the foliage is gone,

and the vegetation has vanished.

7So they carry their wealth and belongings

over the Brook of the Willows.

8For their outcry echoes

to the border of Moab.

Their wailing reaches Eglaim;

it is heard in Beer-elim.

9The waters of Dimona are full of blood,

but I will bring more upon Dimon—

a lion on the fugitives of Moab,

and on the remnant of the land.

Footnotes:

9 a MT, twice in this verse; DSS, Vulgate (compare Syriac) Dibon; Dimon, a wordplay on Dibon (see verse 2), sounds like the Hebrew for blood
