An Oracle Concerning Moab1An a oracle concerning b Moab. Because c Ar of Moab is laid waste in a night,
Moab is undone;
because d Kir of Moab is laid waste in a night,
Moab is undone.
2He has gone up to the temple ▼
▼Hebrew the houseand to f Dibon,
to the high places ▼
▼Or temple, even Dibon to the high placesto weep;
over h Nebo and over i Medeba
Moab j wails.
On every head is k 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 l Heshbon and m Elealeh cry out;
their voice is heard as far as n Jahaz;
therefore the armed men of Moab cry aloud;
his soul trembles.
5My heart cries out for Moab;
her fugitives flee to Zoar,
to o Eglath-shelishiyah.
For at the p ascent of Luhith
they go up weeping;
on the road to q Horonaim
they raise a cry of destruction;
6the waters of r Nimrim
are a desolation;
the grass is withered, the vegetation fails,
the greenery is no more.
7 s 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 t 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,
v a lion for those of Moab who escape,
for the remnant of the land.
