An Oracle Concerning Moab1 [This is] an oracle concerning Moab: Ar in Moab is ruined, destroyed in a night! Kir in Moab is devastated, destroyed in a night! 2 Dibon goes up to its temple to weep at its high places. Moab wails over Nebo, as well as over Medeba. Every head is shaved, every beard is cut off. 3 In its streets they wear sackcloth; on the rooftops and in the public squares they all wail, falling down weeping. 4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out; their voices are heard as far as Jahaz. Therefore the soldiers of Moab cry out; their souls tremble within. 5 My heart cries out over Moab; her fugitives flee as far as Zoar, as far as Eglath-shelishiyah; with weeping they ascend the slope of Luhith; they lament their destruction on the road to Horonaim. 6 The waters of Nimrim are dried up; the grass is withered, the foliage is gone, and the vegetation has vanished. 7 So they carry their wealth and belongings over the Brook of the Willows. 8 For their outcry echoes to the border of Moab. Their wailing reaches Eglaim; [it is heard] in Beer-elim. 9 The waters of Dimon ▼
▼ MT, twice in this verse; DSS, Vulgate (compare Syriac) Dibon; Dimon, a wordplay on Dibon (see verse 2), sounds like the Hebrew for bloodare full of blood, but I will bring more upon Dimon— a lion on the fugitives of Moab, and on the remnant of the land.
