The towns of Moab will be captured, and the ·strong, walled cities [fortresses] will be ·defeated [seized]. ·At that time [L On that day] ·Moab’s warriors will be frightened, [L the heart of Moab’s warriors will be] like ·a [L the heart of a] woman who is ·having a baby [in labor].
God’s verdict on Moab. Indeed! “Look! An eagle is about to swoop down and spread its wings over Moab. The towns will be captured, the fortresses taken. Brave warriors will double up in pain, helpless to fight, like a woman giving birth to a baby. There’ll be nothing left of Moab, nothing at all, because of his defiant arrogance against me.
Kerioth is taken, and strongholds be taken; and the heart of strong men of Moab shall be in that day, as the heart of a woman travailing of child. (Yea, Kerioth is taken, and the strongholds be taken; and the hearts of Moab’s strong men shall be on that day, like the heart of a woman in labour.)
