“For Ir[b] in Moab is destroyed in a night, and Moab[c] is ruined! Because Ir[d] in Moab is destroyed in a single night, Moab is ruined! 2 He has gone up to the temple, and to Dibon, to the high places to weep; over Nebo and over Medeba Moab wails. His head is completely[e] bald, and[f] every beard is shaved off. 3 In its streets they wear sackcloth; on its rooftops and in its squares everyone wails and falls down[g] weeping. 4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out, their voices are heard as far as Jahaz; therefore the loins[h] of Moab cry aloud; its heart quakes for itself. 5 My heart cries out over Moab; her fugitives flee as far as Zoar, as far as Eglath-shelishiyah. For at the ascent to Luhith they go up weeping; on the road to Horonaim they raise a cry of destruction. 6 The Nimrim waters are desolate; the grass is withered, its vegetation gone; there is[i] no foliage left. 7 Therefore the wealth they have acquired and what they have stored up— they carry them away over the Arab[j] Wadi.[k] 8 For the cry has gone out along the border of Moab; her wailing reaches as far as Eglaim, her wailing reaches as far as Beer-elim. 9 The Dibon[l] streams are full of blood; but I will bring upon Dibon[m] even more— a lion will pounce[n] upon those of Moab who escape, upon[o] those who remain in the land.”
