Concerning 1Moab. Thussays the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Woe to 2Nebo, for it has been destroyed; 3Kiriathaim has beenput to shame, it has been captured; The loftystronghold has beenput to shame and ashattered.
2"There is praise for Moabnolonger; In 4Heshbon they have devisedcalamityagainst her: 'Come and let us cut her off from being a nation!' You too, bMadmen, will be silenced; The sword will followafter you.
"The sound of an outcry from 5Horonaim, 'Devastation and greatdestruction!'
4"Moab is broken, Her littleones have sounded out a cry of distress.
"For by the ascent of 6Luhith They will ascend with continualweeping; For at the descent of Horonaim They have heard the canguishedcry of destruction.
"7Flee, save your lives, That you may be like a juniper in the wilderness.
