Numbers 24:17

17 a  I see him, but not now;
I behold him, but not near:
b  a star shall come out of Jacob,
and c  a scepter shall rise out of Israel;
it shall d  crush the forehead
Hebrew corners [of the head]
of Moab
and break down all the sons of Sheth.

Isaiah 11:14

They shall put out their hand h  against i  Edom and j  Moab,
and k  the Ammonites shall obey them.

An Oracle Concerning Moab

1An l  oracle concerning m  Moab.

Because n  Ar of Moab is laid waste in a night,
Moab is undone;
because o  Kir of Moab is laid waste in a night,
Moab is undone.
2He has gone up to the temple
Hebrew  the house
and to q  Dibon,
to the high places
Or temple, even Dibon to the high places
to weep;
over s  Nebo and over t  Medeba
Moab u  wails.
On every head is v  baldness;
every beard is shorn;
3in the streets they wear sackcloth;
on the housetops and in the squares
everyone wails and melts in tears.
4 w  Heshbon and x  Elealeh cry out;
their voice is heard as far as y  Jahaz;
therefore the armed men of Moab cry aloud;
his soul trembles.
5My heart cries out for Moab;
her fugitives flee to Zoar,
to z  Eglath-shelishiyah.
For at the aa  ascent of Luhith
they go up weeping;
on the road to ab  Horonaim
they raise a cry of destruction;
6the waters of ac  Nimrim
are a desolation;
the grass is withered, the vegetation fails,
the greenery is no more.
7 ad  Therefore the abundance they have gained
and what they have laid up
they carry away
over the Brook of the Willows.
8For a cry has gone
around the land of Moab;
her wailing reaches to Eglaim;
her wailing reaches to Beer-elim.
9For the waters of ae  Dibon
Dead Sea Scroll, Vulgate (compare Syriac); Masoretic Text Dimon; twice in this verse
are full of blood;
for I will bring upon Dibon even more,
ag  a lion for those of Moab who escape,
for the remnant of the land.

Isaiah 16

1 ah  Send the lamb to the ruler of the land,
from ai  Sela, by way of the desert,
to the mount of the daughter of Zion.
2Like fleeing birds,
like a scattered nest,
so are the daughters of Moab
at aj  the fords of the Arnon.
3 Give counsel;
grant justice;
ak  make your shade like night
at the height of noon;
shelter the outcasts;
do not reveal the fugitive;
4let al  the outcasts of Moab
sojourn among you;
be a shelter to them
Some Hebrew manuscripts, Septuagint, Syriac; Masoretic Text  let my outcasts sojourn among you; as for Moab, be a shelter to them

from the destroyer.
When the oppressor is no more,
and destruction has ceased,
and he who tramples underfoot has vanished from the land,
5 an  then a throne will be established in steadfast love,
and on it will sit in faithfulness
in the tent of David
one who judges and seeks justice
and is swift to do righteousness.”
6 ao  We have heard of the pride of Moab
how proud he is!—
ap  of his arrogance, his pride, and his insolence;
in his idle boasting he is not right.
7Therefore let Moab wail for Moab,
aq  let everyone wail.
Mourn, utterly stricken,
for the ar  raisin cakes of as  Kir-hareseth.
8 For the fields of Heshbon languish,
and at  the vine of Sibmah;
the lords of the nations
have struck down its branches,
which reached to Jazer
and strayed to the desert;
its shoots spread abroad
and passed over the sea.
9Therefore au  I weep with av  the weeping of Jazer
for the vine of Sibmah;
I drench you with my tears,
O Heshbon and Elealeh;
for over aw  your summer fruit and your harvest
the shout has ceased.
10 ax  And joy and gladness are taken away from ay  the fruitful field,
and in the vineyards no az  songs are sung,
no cheers are raised;
no ba  treader treads out wine bb  in the presses;
I have put an end to the shouting.
11Therefore bc  my inner parts moan like a lyre for Moab,
and my inmost self for Kir-hareseth.

12And when Moab presents himself, when bd  he wearies himself on be  the high place, when he comes to his sanctuary to pray, he will not prevail.

13This is the word that the  Lord spoke concerning Moab bf  in the past. 14But now the  Lord has spoken, saying, “In three years, bg  like the years of a hired worker, the glory of Moab will be brought into contempt, in spite of all his great multitude, and those who remain will be bh  very few and feeble.”

Zephaniah 2:9

9Therefore bi  as I live,” declares the  Lord of hosts,
the God of Israel,
Moab shall become bj  like Sodom,
and the Ammonites bk  like Gomorrah,
a land possessed by nettles and salt pits,
and a waste forever.
The remnant of my people shall plunder them,
and the survivors of my nation shall possess them.”
