The Book of the Prophet

The Oracle concerning Moab
1  The burden of Moab. Is. 25.10-12 · Jer. 48.1-47 · Ezek. 25.8-11 · Amos 2.1-3 · 2.8-11
¶ Because in the night Ar of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence:
2  he is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Me'deba: on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off.
3  In their streets they shall gird themselves with sackcloth: on the tops of their houses, and in their streets, every one shall howl, weeping abundantly.
4  And Heshbon shall cry, and Ele-a'leh; their voice shall be heard even unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous unto him.
5  My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives shall flee unto Zo'ar, a heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of Horona'im they shall raise up a cry of destruction.
6  For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grass faileth, there is no green thing.
7  Therefore the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the brook of the willows.
8  For the cry is gone round about the borders of Moab; the howling thereof unto Eg'la-im, and the howling thereof unto Beer–e'lim.
9  For the waters of Dimon shall be full of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapeth of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land.
