Isaiah 16:7-9 Expanded Bible (EXB)

So ·the people of Moab will cry [L Moab wails for Moab];
    they will all ·be sad [wail].
They will ·moan and groan [or mourn, utterly stricken]
    for the raisin cakes [C perhaps associated with pagan ritual (Hos. 3:1); also known as an aphrodisiac (Song 2:5)] they had in Kir Hareseth.
But the fields of Heshbon ·cannot grow grapes [wither; dry up; L languish];
    and the vines of Sibmah dry up;
    ·foreign rulers [L lords of the nations] have ·destroyed [struck down] the ·grapevines [choice plants].
The grapevines once spread as far as the city of Jazer and into the desert;
    they had spread as far as the sea [C probably the Dead Sea].
I ·cry [weep] with the people of Jazer
    for the grapevines of Sibmah.
I will ·cry with the [or drench you with tears, you] people of Heshbon and Elealeh.
·There will be no shouts of joy,
    because there will be no harvest or ripe fruit [or Your enemies shout for joy over your fruit and harvest].
