International Standard Version
27 Wasn’t Israel an object of mocking for you?
Wasn’t he treated like a thief,[a]
so that whenever you spoke about him
you shook your head in contempt?[b]
28 Abandon the cities, and live on the cliffs,[c]
you inhabitants of Moab.
Be like a dove that builds a nest
by the mouth of a cave.
29 We have heard about Moab’s pride—
he’s very proud—
his haughtiness, his arrogance,
his insolence, and his conceit.[d]
