Moab’s Pending Judgment

1A messagea concerning Moab:

“For Irb in Moab is destroyed in a night,

and Moabc is ruined!

Because Ird in Moab is destroyed in a single night,

Moab is ruined!

2He has gone up to the temple, and to Dibon,

to the high places to weep;

over Nebo and over Medeba

Moab wails.

His head is completelye bald,

andf every beard is shaved off.

3In its streets they wear sackcloth;

on its rooftops and in its squares

everyone wails and falls downg weeping.

4Heshbon and Elealeh cry out,

their voices are heard as far as Jahaz;

therefore the loinsh of Moab cry aloud;

its heart quakes for itself.

5My heart cries out over Moab;

her fugitives flee as far as Zoar,

as far as Eglath-shelishiyah.

For at the ascent to Luhith

they go up weeping;

on the road to Horonaim

they raise a cry of destruction.

6The Nimrim waters are desolate;

the grass is withered,

its vegetation gone;

there isi no foliage left.

7Therefore the wealth they have acquired

and what they have stored up—

they carry them away

over the Arabj Wadi.k

8For the cry has gone out

along the border of Moab;

her wailing reaches as far as Eglaim,

her wailing reaches as far as Beer-elim.

9The Dibonl streams are full of blood;

but I will bring upon Dibonm even more—

a lion will pouncen upon those of Moab who escape,

upono those who remain in the land.”
