Concerning Moab. Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: "Woe to Nebo, for it is laid waste! Kiriatha'im is put to shame, it is taken; the fortress is put to shame and broken down;
the renown of Moab is no more. In Heshbon they planned evil against her: 'Come, let us cut her off from being a nation!' You also, O Madmen, shall be brought to silence; the sword shall pursue you.
"Hark! a cry from Horona'im, 'Desolation and great destruction!'
Moab is destroyed; a cry is heard as far as Zo'ar.
For at the ascent of Luhith they go up weeping; for at the descent of Horona'im they have heard the cry of destruction.
Flee! Save yourselves! Be like a wild ass in the desert!
For, because you trusted in your strongholds and your treasures, you also shall be taken; and Chemosh shall go forth into exile, with his priests and his princes.
