38 And all wailing shall be on all the roofs of Moab, and in the streets thereof, for I have all-broken Moab as an unprofitable vessel, saith the Lord. (And only wailing shall be on all of Moab’s rooftops, and in its streets, for I have broken Moab in pieces, like a useless vessel, saith the Lord.)

(And they shall yell, How it is overcome! how Moab hath cast down its head, and is shamed! And Moab shall be mocked, and made an example to all the people around it.)
