Isaiah 16:7-9 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

That is why Moab will wail.
    Everyone will wail for Moab.
Mourn and grieve over the raisin cakes of Kir Hareseth.[a]
The fields of Heshbon and the vineyards of Sibmah wither.
Rulers of the nations have cut off their grapes.
    The grapevines once reached as far as Jazer
        and strayed out into the desert.
    Their shoots had spread out over the sea.
I will cry for the grapevines of Sibmah
    as Jazer cries for them.
        I will drench you with my tears, Heshbon and Elealeh.
The shouts of joy for your ripened fruits
    and your harvest will be silenced.


  1. Isaiah 16:7 Hebrew meaning of this line uncertain.
