Isaiah 15:2-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 Dibon1 goes up to its temple, to its high places2 to weep; Moab wails3 over Nebo4 and Medeba. Every head is shaved5 and every beard cut off.6 3 In the streets they wear sackcloth;7 on the roofs8 and in the public squares9 they all wail,10 prostrate with weeping.11 4 Heshbon12 and Elealeh13 cry out, their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz.14 Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out, and their hearts are faint. 5 My heart cries out15 over Moab;16 her fugitives17 flee as far as Zoar,18 as far as Eglath Shelishiyah. They go up the way to Luhith, weeping as they go; on the road to Horonaim19 they lament their destruction.20 6 The waters of Nimrim are dried up21 and the grass is withered;22 the vegetation is gone23 and nothing green is left.24 7 So the wealth they have acquired25 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 Beer26 Elim. 9 Dimon'sa waters are full of blood, but I will bring still more upon Dimonb-- a lion27 upon the fugitives of Moab28 and upon those who remain in the land.
