A Prophecy Against Moab

16:6-12pp -- Jer 48:29-36

1 An oracle1 concerning Moab:2 Ar3 in Moab is ruined,4 destroyed in a night! Kir5 in Moab is ruined, destroyed in a night! 2 Dibon6 goes up to its temple, to its high places7 to weep; Moab wails8 over Nebo9 and Medeba. Every head is shaved10 and every beard cut off.11 3 In the streets they wear sackcloth;12 on the roofs13 and in the public squares14 they all wail,15 prostrate with weeping.16 4 Heshbon17 and Elealeh18 cry out, their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz.19 Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out, and their hearts are faint. 5 My heart cries out20 over Moab;21 her fugitives22 flee as far as Zoar,23 as far as Eglath Shelishiyah. They go up the way to Luhith, weeping as they go; on the road to Horonaim24 they lament their destruction.25 6 The waters of Nimrim are dried up26 and the grass is withered;27 the vegetation is gone28 and nothing green is left.29 7 So the wealth they have acquired30 and stored up they carry away over the Ravine of the Poplars. 8 Their outcry echoes along the border of Moab; their wailing reaches as far as Eglaim, their lamentation as far as Beer31 Elim. 9 Dimon'sa waters are full of blood, but I will bring still more upon Dimonb-- a lion32 upon the fugitives of Moab33 and upon those who remain in the land.
