A Message Concerning Ammon

1 Concerning the {Ammonites}:a Thus says Yahweh, "Are there no sons for Israel? Or is there no heir for him? Why has Milcom taken possession of Gad, and his people dwelled in its towns? 2 {Therefore}b look, days [are] coming," {declares}c Yahweh, "and I will sound against Rabbah, the {Ammonites},d [the] alarm of [the] war, and it will become as a mound of desolation, and its daughters will burn in the fire. Then Israel will dispossess his dispossessors," says Yahweh. 3 "Wail, Heshbon, for Ai is devastated. Cry out, O daughters of Rabbah, put on sackcloth. Lament and run back and forth among the walls. For Milcom will go into exile, his priests and his officials together. 4 Why do you boast in [your] valleys? Your valleyse [are] ebbing. O unfaithful daughter, who trusted in her treasures, [who said], 'Who will come against me?' 5 Look, I [am] going to bring dread on you," {declares}f Lord Yahweh of hosts, "from all your surrounding [neighbors]. And you will be scattered, each one {before it},g and there is no [one who] gathers the fugitives.h 6 Yet {afterward}i I will restore the fortunesj of the {Ammonites},"k {declares}l Yahweh.
