Here is what the LORD says about Moab. The LORD who rules over all is the God of Israel. He says, "How terrible it will be for Nebo! It will be destroyed. Kiriathaim will be captured. It will be put to shame. Its fort will be broken down. It will be put to shame.
Moab will not be praised anymore. In Heshbon people will plan its fall from power. They will say, 'Come. Let's put an end to that nation.' City of Madmen, you too will be silent because you are sad. My sword will hunt you down.
Listen to the cries from Horonaim. The town is being completely destroyed.
Moab will be broken. Her little ones will cry out.
The people go up the road to Luhith. They are sobbing bitterly as they go. Loud cries are heard on the road down to Horonaim. People cry out because the town is being destroyed.
People of Moab run away! Run for your lives! Become like a lonely bush in the desert.
