This message was given concerning Moab. This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "Destruction is certain for the city of Nebo; it will soon lie in ruins. The city of Kiriathaim will be humiliated and captured; the fortress will be humiliated and broken down.
No one will ever brag about Moab again, for there is a plot against her life. In Heshbon plans have been completed to destroy her. 'Come,' they say, 'we will cut her off from being a nation.' The city of Madmen, too, will be silenced; the sword will follow you there.
References for Jeremiah 48:2

for all Moab is being destroyed. Her little ones will cry out.

Her refugees will climb the hills of Luhith, weeping bitterly, while cries of terror rise from Horonaim below.
Flee for your lives! Hide in the wilderness!
References for Jeremiah 48:6
