So I will send fire upon Moab—
it will devour Kerioth’s citadels.
Moab will die in an uproar,
    with a shout of alarm
    and the sound of the shofar.
I will cut off the ruler from her midst,
and slay all her princes with him.
Thus Adonai has said.

As for Judah and Israel
Thus says Adonai:
“For three crimes of Judah
    even for four, I will not relent.
For they despise Adonai’s Torah
    and have not kept His statutes.
Their lies have misled them—
those their fathers walked after.

I will send fire on Moab
    that will consume the fortresses of Kerioth.[a](A)
Moab will go down in great tumult
    amid war cries(B) and the blast of the trumpet.(C)
I will destroy her ruler(D)
    and kill all her officials with him,”(E)

This is what the Lord says:

“For three sins of Judah,(G)
    even for four, I will not relent.
Because they have rejected the law(H) of the Lord
    and have not kept his decrees,(I)
because they have been led astray(J) by false gods,[b](K)
    the gods[c] their ancestors followed,(L)
