1An oracle concerning Moab.

Because Ar is laid waste in a night, Moab is undone; because Kir is laid waste in a night, Moab is undone. 2 Dibon b Syr Compare Gk: Heb fathers has gone up to the temple, to the high places to weep; over Nebo and over Medeba Moab wails. On every head is baldness, every beard is shorn; 3 in the streets they bind on sackcloth; on the housetops and in the squares everyone wails and melts in tears. 4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out, their voices are heard as far as Jahaz; therefore the loins of Moab quiver; a Q Ms Vg: MT he his soul trembles. 5 My heart cries out for Moab; his fugitives flee to Zoar, to Eglath‐shelishiyah. For at the ascent of Luhith they go up weeping; on the road to Horonaim they raise a cry of destruction; 6 the waters of Nimrim are a desolation; the grass is withered, the new growth fails, the verdure is no more. 7 Therefore the abundance they have gained and what they have laid up they carry away over the Wadi of the Willows. 8 For a cry has gone around the land of Moab; the wailing reaches to Eglaim, the wailing reaches to Beer‐elim. 9 For the waters of Dibon b Cn: Heb the house and Dibon are full of blood; yet I will bring upon Dibon b Cn: Heb the house and Dibon even more— a lion for those of Moab who escape, for the remnant of the land.
