Tree of Life Version
15 The burden of Moab.
For in the night that Ar is devastated,
Moab is ruined;
for in the night that Kir is devastated,
Moab is ruined.
2 He has gone up to the shrine, to Dibon,
to the high places to weep.
Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba.
Every head is bald, every beard shaven.
3 In their streets they wear sackcloth.
On their housetops and in their plazas,
everyone wails, weeping profusely.
4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out.
Their voice is heard as far as Jahaz.
Therefore the soldiers of Moab cry aloud,
his soul faints within him.
5 My heart cries out for Moab.
Her fugitives are as far as Zoar
as a three year old heifer,
for by the ascent of Luhith
they go up with weeping,
for on the way of Horonaim
they raise a cry of distress.
6 The waters of Nimrim are desolate.
The grass is withered away,
the new grass withers,
there is nothing green.
7 Therefore the riches they had gotten
and whatever they have stored,
they carry over the Wadi of Willows.
8 For the cry has gone around
the borders of Moab,
the wailing to Eglaim,
and the wailing to Beer-elim.
9 For the waters of Dimon are full of blood,
but I will bring on Dimon even more—
a lion for those escaping from Moab,
and for those remaining in the land.
New International Version
A Prophecy Against Moab(A)
Ar(D) in Moab is ruined,(E)
destroyed in a night!
Kir(F) in Moab is ruined,
destroyed in a night!
2 Dibon(G) goes up to its temple,
to its high places(H) to weep;
Moab wails(I) over Nebo(J) and Medeba.
Every head is shaved(K)
and every beard cut off.(L)
3 In the streets they wear sackcloth;(M)
on the roofs(N) and in the public squares(O)
they all wail,(P)
prostrate with weeping.(Q)
4 Heshbon(R) and Elealeh(S) cry out,
their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz.(T)
Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out,
and their hearts are faint.
5 My heart cries out(U) over Moab;(V)
her fugitives(W) flee as far as Zoar,(X)
as far as Eglath Shelishiyah.
They go up the hill to Luhith,
weeping as they go;
on the road to Horonaim(Y)
they lament their destruction.(Z)
6 The waters of Nimrim are dried up(AA)
and the grass is withered;(AB)
the vegetation is gone(AC)
and nothing green is left.(AD)
7 So the wealth they have acquired(AE) and stored up
they carry away over the Ravine of the Poplars.
8 Their outcry echoes along the border of Moab;
their wailing reaches as far as Eglaim,
their lamentation as far as Beer(AF) Elim.
9 The waters of Dimon[a] are full of blood,
but I will bring still more upon Dimon[b]—
a lion(AG) upon the fugitives of Moab(AH)
and upon those who remain in the land.
