Surely in a night Ar of Moab is devastated and ruined; Surely in a night Kir of Moab is devastated and ruined. 2 They have gone up to the [b]temple and toDibon, even to the high places to weep. Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba; Everyone’s head is bald and every beard is cut off. 3 In their streets they have girded themselves with sackcloth; On their housetops and in their squares Everyone is wailing, [c]dissolved in tears. 4 Heshbon and Elealeh also cry out, Their voice is heard all the way to Jahaz; Therefore the [d]armed men of Moab cry aloud; His soul trembles within him. 5 My heart cries out for Moab; His fugitives are as far as Zoar and Eglath-shelishiyah, For they go up the ascent of Luhith weeping; Surely on the road to Horonaim they raise a cry of distress over their ruin. 6 For the waters of Nimrim are [e]desolate. Surely the grass is withered, the tender grass [f]died out, There is no green thing. 7 Therefore the abundance which they have acquired and stored up They carry off over the brook of [g]Arabim. 8 For the cry of distress has gone around the territory of Moab, Its wail goes as far as Eglaim and its wailing even to Beer-elim. 9 For the waters of Dimon are full of [h]blood; Surely I will bring added woes upon Dimon, A lion upon the fugitives of Moab and upon the remnant of the land.
16 Send the tribute lamb to the ruler of the land, From [a]Sela by way of the wilderness to the mountain of the daughter of Zion. 2 Then, like [b]fleeing birds or scattered [c]nestlings, The daughters of Moab will be at the fords of the Arnon. 3 “[d]Give us advice, make a decision; [e]Cast your shadow like night [f]at high noon; Hide the outcasts, do not betray the fugitive. 4 “Let the [g]outcasts of Moab stay with you; Be a hiding place to them from the destroyer.” For the extortioner has come to an end, destruction has ceased, Oppressors have completely disappeared from the land. 5 A throne will even be established in lovingkindness, And a judge will sit on it in faithfulness in the tent of David; Moreover, he will seek justice And be prompt in righteousness.
