Numbers 24:1717 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 11:1414 f But they shall swoop down on the shoulder of the Philistines in the west,
and together they shall plunder g the people of the east.
They shall put out their hand h against i Edom and j Moab,
and k the Ammonites shall obey them.
An Oracle Concerning Moab1An 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 houseand to q Dibon,
to the high places ▼
▼Or temple, even Dibon to the high placesto 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 verseare 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 161 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;
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 2:99Therefore 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.”
