Against Moab. Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: "Woe to Nebo! For it is plundered, Kirjathaim is shamed and taken; The high stronghold is shamed and dismayed--
No more praise of Moab. In Heshbon they have devised evil against her: 'Come, and let us cut her off as a nation.' You also shall be cut down, O Madmen! a The sword shall pursue you;
A voice of crying shall be from Horonaim: 'Plundering and great destruction!'
"Moab is destroyed; Her little ones have caused a cry to be heard; b5
For in the Ascent of Luhith they ascend with continual weeping; For in the descent of Horonaim the enemies have heard a cry of destruction.
"Flee, save your lives! And be like the juniper c in the wilderness.
