Judgment on Ammon1 a Concerning the Ammonites. Thus says the Lord: “Has Israel no sons?
Has he no heir?
Why then has b Milcom c dispossessed Gad,
and his people settled in its cities?
2Therefore, behold, the days are coming,
declares the Lord,
when I will cause d the battle cry to be heard
against e Rabbah of the Ammonites;
it shall become a desolate f mound,
and its villages shall be burned with fire;
then Israel shall dispossess those who dispossessed him,
says the Lord.
3 “Wail, O g Heshbon, for Ai is laid waste!
Cry out, O daughters of h Rabbah!
i Put on sackcloth,
lament, and run to and fro among the hedges!
For j Milcom shall go into exile,
k with his priests and his officials.
4Why do you boast of your valleys ▼
▼Hebrew boast of your valleys, your valley flows
m O faithless daughter,
n who trusted in her treasures, saying,
‘Who will come against me?’
5Behold o I will bring terror upon you,
declares the Lord God of hosts,
from all who are around you,
and you shall be driven out, every man straight before him,
with none to gather the fugitives.
6“But p afterward I will restore the fortunes of the Ammonites, declares the Lord.”
