Isaiah 15

An Oracle concerning Moab

15An oracle concerning Moab.


Because Ar is laid waste in a night,
   Moab is undone;
because Kir is laid waste in a night,
   Moab is undone.
2 Dibon* has gone up to the temple,
   to the high places to weep;
over Nebo and over Medeba
   Moab wails.
On every head is baldness,
   every beard is shorn;
3 in the streets they bind on sackcloth;
   on the housetops and in the squares
   everyone wails and melts in tears.
4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out,
   their voices are heard as far as Jahaz;
therefore the loins of Moab quiver;*
   his soul trembles.
5 My heart cries out for Moab;
   his fugitives flee to Zoar,
   to Eglath-shelishiyah.
For at the ascent of Luhith
   they go up weeping;
on the road to Horonaim
   they raise a cry of destruction;
6 the waters of Nimrim
   are a desolation;
the grass is withered, the new growth fails,
   the verdure is no more.
7 Therefore the abundance they have gained
   and what they have laid up
they carry away
   over the Wadi of the Willows.
8 For a cry has gone
   around the land of Moab;
the wailing reaches to Eglaim,
   the wailing reaches to Beer-elim.
9 For the waters of Dibon* are full of blood;
   yet I will bring upon Dibon* even more—
a lion for those of Moab who escape,
   for the remnant of the land.
