Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Concerning Mo'av, this is what ADONAI-Tzva'ot, the God of Isra'el, says: "Woe to N'vo, for it is ravaged; Kiryatayim disgraced and captured. Misgav is put to shame, distressed. 1 Concerning Moab: This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: "Woe to Nebo, for it will be ruined. Kiriathaim will be disgraced and captured; the stronghold will be disgraced and shattered.
2 "In Mo'av, nothing is left to praise. At Heshbon they plotted her downfall: 'Come, we'll cut her off as a nation.' You too, Madmein, will be silenced; the sword pursues behind you. 2 Moab will be praised no more; in Heshbon men will plot her downfall: 'Come, let us put an end to that nation.' You too, O Madmen, will be silenced; the sword will pursue you.
3 An agonized cry from Horonayim, ruin, terrible devastation! 3 Listen to the cries from Horonaim, cries of great havoc and destruction.
4 Mo'av has been shattered; the cries of her young ones are heard, 4 Moab will be broken; her little ones will cry out.
5 as they ascend the slopes of Luchit, weeping bitterly as they climb. On the road down to Horonayim shrieks of destruction ring out." 5 They go up the way to Luhith, weeping bitterly as they go; on the road down to Horonaim anguished cries over the destruction are heard.
6 Flee! Save your lives! Be strong, like a tamarisk in the desert. 6 Flee! Run for your lives; become like a bush in the desert.
