A Message About Moab

1 Concerning Moab: This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Woe to Nebo, for it will be ruined. Kiriathaim will be disgraced and captured; the strongholda will be disgraced and shattered.
2 Moab will be praised no more; in Heshbonb people will plot her downfall: ‘Come, let us put an end to that nation.’ You, the people of Madmen,c will also be silenced; the sword will pursue you.
3 Cries of anguish arise from Horonaim, cries of great havoc and destruction.
4 Moab will be broken; her little ones will cry out.d
5 They go up the hill to Luhith, weeping bitterly as they go; on the road down to Horonaim anguished cries over the destruction are heard.
6 Flee! Run for your lives; become like a bushe in the desert.
