1 The [a]burden of Moab. Surely [b]Ar of Moab was destroyed, and brought to silence in a night: surely Kir of Moab was destroyed, and brought to silence in a night.
2 [c]He shall go up to the Temple, and to Dibon to the high places to weep: for [d]Nebo and for Medeba shall Moab howl: upon all [e]their heads shall be baldness, and every beard shaven.
3 In their streets shall they be girded with sackcloth: on the tops of their houses, and in their streets everyone shall howl, and come down with weeping.
4 And Heshbon shall cry, and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard unto Jahaz: therefore the warriors of Moab shall shout: the soul of everyone shall lament in himself.
5 Mine [f]heart shall cry for Moab: his fugitives shall flee unto Zoar, [g]an heifer of three years old: for they shall go up with weeping by the mounting up of Luhith: and by the way of Horonaim they [h]shall raise up a cry of destruction.
6 For the waters of Nimrim shall be dried up: therefore the grass is withered, the herbs consumed, and there was no green herb.
7 Therefore what every man hath left, and their substance shall they bear to the [i]brook of the willows.
8 For the cry went round about the borders of Moab, and the howling thereof unto Eglaim, and the skriking thereof unto Beer Elim,
9 Because the waters of Dimon shall be full [j]of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, even lions [k]upon him that escapeth of Moab, and to the remnant of the land.
