Concerning Moab. Thus saith Jehovah of hosts, the God of Israel: Woe unto Nebo! for it is spoiled; Kirjathaim is put to shame, it is taken; Misgab a is put to shame and dismayed.
Moab's praise b is no more; in Heshbon they have devised c evil against her: Come, and let us cut her off from [being] a nation. Thou also, O Madmen, shalt be cut down; the sword shall pursue thee.
A voice of crying from Horonaim; wasting and great destruction!
Moab is destroyed; her little ones d have caused a cry to be heard.
For by the ascent of Luhith continual weeping shall go up; for in the descent of Horonaim is heard the anguish of the cry of destruction.
Flee, save your lives, and be like a shrub e in the wilderness.
For because thou hast confided in thy works and in thy treasures, thou also shalt be taken, and Chemosh f shall go forth into captivity, his priests and his princes together.
