·How terrible it is for [Woe to] you, Moab! The people of Chemosh [C the chief god of Moab] have been destroyed. Your sons have been taken ·captive [into exile], and your daughters ·have been taken away [into captivity].
“On the outskirts of Heshbon, refugees will pull up short, worn out. Fire will flame high from Heshbon, a firestorm raging from the capital of Sihon’s kingdom. It will burn off Moab’s eyebrows, will scorch the skull of the braggarts. That’s all for you, Moab! You worshipers of Chemosh will be finished off! Your sons will be trucked off to prison camps; your daughters will be herded into exile. But yet there’s a day that’s coming when I’ll put things right in Moab. “For now, that’s the judgment on Moab.”
Moab, woe to thee; thou people of Chemosh, hast perished, for why thy sons and thy daughters be taken into captivity. (Moab, woe to thee; thou people of Chemosh have perished, for thy sons and thy daughters be taken into captivity.)
