39 “How it is filled with terror! How they wail!
    How Moab has turned his back! He is disgraced!
So Moab has become as a derision,
    and as a terror for all his surrounding peoples.”

“Look, like an eagle he will swoop down,
    and he will spread out his wings against Moab.

    and the strongholds will be conquered,
and the hearts[a] of the warriors of Moab will be on that day
    like the heart of a woman who is in labor.
