Isaiah 16:7-9 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Because of their pride, everyone in Moab will mourn.
    They will wish for the way things used to be.
    They will wish for the raisin cakes from Kir Hareseth.[a]
The fields of Heshbon and the vines of Sibmah no longer grow grapes.
    Foreign rulers have destroyed the vines.
The enemy has reached Jazer
    and has spread into the desert and down to the sea.[b]
I will cry with the people of Jazer and Sibmah,
    because the grapes have been destroyed.
I will cry with the people of Heshbon and Elealeh
    because there will be no harvest.
There will be no summer fruit,
    and there will be no shouts of joy for the harvest.
