Isaiah 16


The Destruction of Moab

1I will send a male lamb lording over the land; [2not 9rock 8a desolate 1is 3the 4mountain 5of the 6daughter 7of Zion]? 2For you shall be as [2winged creature 3flying about 1a young] being removed, O daughter of Moab; and thereupon, O Arnon. 3Much counsel, [3make 1and also 4a protection 5for her mourning 2always]; [3at 4midday 2darkness 1they flee]; they are startled; do not celebrate. 4[4shall sojourn 5with you 1The 2exiles 3of Moab]; they will be a protection for you from the face of the one pursuing; for [2was lifted away 1your alliance in war], and the [2ruler 3perished 1trampling] from the earth. 5And [2shall be set right 3with 4mercy 1a throne]; and one shall sit upon it with truth in the tent of David, judging and inquiring of equity, and hastening righteousness. 6We heard the insult of Moab -- insulting exceedingly; the pride and his insult and his vehement anger; not so your divination. 7Moab shall shriek; for in the land of Moab all shall shriek. [2among 3the ones 4dwelling 1But] Seth you shall meditate upon, and you shall not be ashamed. 8The plains of Heshbon shall mourn the grapevine of Sibmah. Swallowing down the nations, trampling her grapevines, unto Jazer in no way shall you join together. Wander the wilderness! The ones being sent from her were abandoned, for they passed over the sea. 9On account of this I shall weep as the one weeping of Jazer for the grapevine of Sibmah; [5your trees 4cast down 1Heshbon 2and 3Elealeh]; for upon the harvest and upon the gathering of your crops I shall trample, and all shall fall. 10And [4shall be lifted away 1gladness 2and 3the leap for joy] from the vineyards; and in your vineyards in no way shall they be glad; and in no way shall they tread wine in the wine-vats; for the vintage has been ceased. 11On account of this my belly [4for 5Moab 2as 3a harp 1shall sound], and [2the things 3within me 4as 5a wall 1you renewed]. 12And it shall be for your feeling of shame (for Moab tired upon the shrines) that he shall enter unto the handmade things of hers so as to pray; and in no way should they be able to rescue her. 13This is the saying which the  lord spoke against Moab. 14And now the  lord spoke, saying, In three years, of the years of a hireling, [4shall be dishonored 1the 2glory 3of Moab] in all the [2richness 1much]; and [2shall be left behind 1very few], and not the important.
