Isaiah 15

An Oracle Concerning Moab

1 An 1oracle concerning 2Moab. Because 3Ar of Moab is laid waste in a night, Moab is undone; because 4Kir of Moab is laid waste in a night, Moab is undone.
2 He has gone up to the temple,a and to 5Dibon, to the high placesb to weep; over 6Nebo and over 7Medeba Moab 8wails. On every head is 9baldness; every beard is shorn;
3 in the streets they wear sackcloth; on the housetops and in the squares everyone wails and melts in tears.
4 10Heshbon and 11Elealeh cry out; their voice is heard as far as 12Jahaz; therefore the armed men of Moab cry aloud; his soul trembles.
5 My heart cries out for Moab; her fugitives flee to Zoar, to 13Eglath-shelishiyah. For at the 14ascent of Luhith they go up weeping; on the road to 15Horonaim they raise a cry of destruction;
6 the waters of 16Nimrim are a desolation; the grass is withered, the vegetation fails, the greenery is no more.
7 17Therefore the abundance they have gained and what they have laid up they carry away over the Brook of the Willows.
8 For a cry has gone around the land of Moab; her wailing reaches to Eglaim; her wailing reaches to Beer-elim.
9 For the waters of 18Dibonc are full of blood; for I will bring upon Dibon even more, 19a lion for those of Moab who escape, for the remnant of the land.
