For (A)the fields of Heshbon languish,

With the weeping of Jazer;
I will drench you with my tears,
(D)O Heshbon and Elealeh;
For [a]battle cries have fallen
Over your summer fruits and your harvest.

10 (E)Gladness is taken away,
And joy from the plentiful field;
In the vineyards there will be no singing,
Nor will there be shouting;
No treaders will tread out wine in the presses;
I have made their shouting cease.

And the apple tree—
All the trees of the field are withered;
Surely (B)joy has withered away from the sons of men.
