Why then has aMalcam taken possession of Gad And his people settled in its cities? 2 "Therefore behold, the days are coming," declares the LORD, "That I will cause a b2trumpet blast of war to be heard Against 3Rabbah of the sons of Ammon; And it will become a desolate heap, And her 4towns will be set on fire. Then Israel will take 5possession of his possessors," Says the LORD. 3 "Wail, O 6Heshbon, for 7Ai has been destroyed! Cry out, O daughters of Rabbah, 8Gird yourselves with sackcloth and lament, And rush back and forth inside the walls; For cMalcam will 9go into exile Together with his priests and his princes. 4 "How 10boastful you are about the valleys! Your valley is flowing away, O 11backsliding daughter Who trusts in her 12treasures, saying, '13Who will come against me?' 5 "Behold, I am going to bring 14terror upon you," Declares the Lord dGOD of hosts, "From all directions around you; And each of you will be 15driven out eheadlong, With no one to gather the 16fugitives together. 6 "But afterward I will 17restore The ffortunes of the sons of Ammon," Declares the LORD.
