"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'Because Moab1 and Seir2 said, "Look, the house of Judah has become like all the other nations,"
therefore I will expose the flank of Moab, beginning at its frontier towns--Beth Jeshimoth3, Baal Meon4 and Kiriathaim5--the glory of that land.
I will give Moab along with the Ammonites to the people of the East as a possession, so that the Ammonites will not be remembered6 among the nations;
and I will inflict punishment on Moab. Then they will know that I am the LORD.' "7
