Concerning Moab: The LORD of heavenly forces, the God of Israel, proclaims: How awful for Nebo; it lies in ruins. Kirathaim is captured and shamed; the fortress is disgraced, reduced to rubble.
No one sings Moab's praise any longer! In Heshbon they are hatching a plot against her: "Come, let's bring down the nation!" You too, madmen, will be silenced; the sword will pursue you.
Listen to the cries for help from Horonaim: "Destruction and massive devastation!"
Moab is shattered; its young cry for help.
On the way up to Luhith, there is uncontrollable weeping. On the way down to Horonaim, they hear sobs of anguish.
Run for your lives! Be like Aroera in the desert.
