Isaiah 15

NLT 1 This message came to me concerning Moab: In one night the town of Ar will be leveled, and the city of Kir will be destroyed. NIV 1 An oracle concerning Moab: Ar in Moab is ruined, destroyed in a night! Kir in Moab is ruined, destroyed in a night! NLT 2 Your people will go to their temple in Dibon to mourn. They will go to their sacred shrines to weep. They will wail for the fate of Nebo and Medeba, shaving their heads in sorrow and cutting off their beards. NIV 2 Dibon goes up to its temple, to its high places to weep; Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba. Every head is shaved and every beard cut off. NLT 3 They will wear burlap as they wander the streets. From every home and public square will come the sound of wailing. NIV 3 In the streets they wear sackcloth; on the roofs and in the public squares they all wail, prostrate with weeping. NLT 4 The people of Heshbon and Elealeh will cry out; their voices will be heard as far away as Jahaz! The bravest warriors of Moab will cry out in utter terror. They will be helpless with fear. NIV 4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out, their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz. Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out, and their hearts are faint. NLT 5 My heart weeps for Moab. Its people flee to Zoar and Eglath-shelishiyah. Weeping, they climb the road to Luhith. Their cries of distress can be heard all along the road to Horonaim. NIV 5 My heart cries out over Moab; her fugitives flee as far as Zoar, as far as Eglath Shelishiyah. They go up the way to Luhith, weeping as they go; on the road to Horonaim they lament their destruction. NLT 6 Even the waters of Nimrim are dried up! The grassy banks are scorched. The tender plants are gone; nothing green remains. NIV 6 The waters of Nimrim are dried up and the grass is withered; the vegetation is gone and nothing green is left. NLT 7 The people grab their possessions and carry them across the Ravine of Willows. NIV 7 So the wealth they have acquired and stored up they carry away over the Ravine of the Poplars. NLT 8 A cry of distress echoes through the land of Moab from one end to the other— from Eglaim to Beer-elim. NIV 8 Their outcry echoes along the border of Moab; their wailing reaches as far as Eglaim, their lamentation as far as Beer Elim. NLT 9 The stream near Dibon runs red with blood, but I am still not finished with Dibon! Lions will hunt down the survivors— both those who try to escape and those who remain behind. NIV 9 Dimon's waters are full of blood, but I will bring still more upon Dimon-- a lion upon the fugitives of Moab and upon those who remain in the land.
