10 And gladness is taken away, and joy out of the plentiful field: and in the vineyards shall be no singing nor shouting for joy: the treader shall not tread wine in the wine presses: I have caused the rejoicing to cease.

11 Wherefore, my [c]bowels shall sound like an harp for Moab, and mine inward parts for Kir Heres.
