An Oracle Concerning Moab

1The [†]oracle concerning Moab.

Surely in a night Ar of Moab is destroyed and ruined;

Surely in a night Kir of Moab is destroyed and ruined.

2They have gone up to the [†]temple and to Dibon, even to the high places to weep.

Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba;

Everyone’s head is bald and every beard is cut off.

3In their streets they have girded themselves with sackcloth;

On their rooftops and in their squares

Everyone is wailing, [†]dissolved in weeping.

4Heshbon and Elealeh also cry out,

Their voice is heard all the way to Jahaz;

Therefore [†]the armed men of Moab make a loud shout;

His soul trembles within him.

5My heart cries out for Moab;

Those who flee from her are as far as Zoar and Eglath-shelishiyah,

For they go up the ascent of Luhith weeping;

Surely on the road to Horonaim they keep awake with crying in distress over their destruction.

6For the waters of Nimrim are [†]desolate.

Surely the grass is dried up, the tender grass has [†]completely ceased,

There is no green thing.

7Therefore the abundance they have made and stored up

They carry off over the brook of [†]Arabim.

8For the cry has gone around the territory of Moab,

Its wailing goes as far as Eglaim and its wailing even to Beer-elim.

9For the waters of Dimon are full of [†]blood;

Surely I will put added woes upon Dimon,

A lion upon those of Moab who have escaped and upon the remnant of the land.

1 Or burden of
2 Lit house
3 Lit going down in weeping
4 Or the loins of
6 Lit desolations
6 Lit come to an end
7 Or the poplars
9 Heb dam (a wordplay)
