Isaiah 15

An Oracle Concerning Moab

1 The a burden 1 against Moab.
Because in the night b Ar of c Moab is laid waste
And destroyed,
Because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste
And destroyed,
2 He has gone up to the 2 temple and Dibon,
To the high places to weep.
Moab will wail over Nebo and over Medeba;
d On all their heads will be baldness,
And every beard cut off.
3 In their streets they will clothe themselves with sackcloth;
On the tops of their houses
And in their streets
Everyone will wail, e weeping bitterly.
4 Heshbon and Elealeh will cry out,
Their voice shall be heard as far as f Jahaz;
Therefore the 3 armed soldiers of Moab will cry out;
His life will be burdensome to him.
5 "My g heart will cry out for Moab;
His fugitives shall flee to Zoar,
Like 4 a three-year-old heifer.
For h by the Ascent of Luhith
They will go up with weeping;
For in the way of Horonaim
They will raise up a cry of destruction,
6 For the waters i of Nimrim will be desolate,
For the green grass has withered away;
The grass fails, there is nothing green.
7 Therefore the abundance they have gained,
And what they have laid up,
They will carry away to the Brook of the Willows.
8 For the cry has gone all around the borders of Moab,
Its wailing to Eglaim
And its wailing to Beer Elim.
9 For the waters of 5 Dimon will be full of blood;
Because I will bring more upon Dimon,
j Lions upon him who escapes from Moab,
And on the remnant of the land."
