Concerning Moab:1 This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "Woe to Nebo,2 for it will be ruined. Kiriathaim3 will be disgraced and captured; the strongholda will be disgraced and shattered.
Moab will be praised4 no more; in Heshbonb5 men will plot her downfall: 'Come, let us put an end to that nation.'6 You too, O Madmen,c will be silenced; the sword will pursue you.
Listen to the cries from Horonaim,7 cries of great havoc and destruction.
Moab will be broken; her little ones will cry out.d5
They go up the way to Luhith,8 weeping bitterly as they go; on the road down to Horonaim9 anguished cries over the destruction are heard.
Flee!10 Run for your lives; become like a bushe in the desert.117
Since you trust in your deeds and riches,12 you too will be taken captive, and Chemosh13 will go into exile,14 together with his priests and officials.15
