1 Thus says Yahweh: "For three transgressions of Moab and for four I will not revoke [the punishment], because he burned to lime the bones of the king of Edom.
2 So I will send a fire against Moab and it will devour the citadel fortresses of Kerioth, and Moab will die amid uproar, amid war cries [and] amid the sound of a horn.
3 And I will cut off [the] ruler from its midst and I will kill all of its officials with him," says Yahweh.

Judgment on Judah

4 Thus says Yahweh: "For three transgressions of Judah and for four I will not revoke [the punishment], because they have rejected the law of Yahweh and have not kept his rules, and their lies have led them astray, {after which their ancestors walked}!
5 So I will send a fire against Judah and it will devour the citadel fortresses of Jerusalem.

Judgment on Israel

6 Thus says Yahweh: "For three transgressions of Israel and for four I will not revoke [the punishment], because they sell the righteous for money and the poor for a pair of sandals!
7 Those who trample the heads of the powerless into the dust of the ground and turn aside the way of the destitute, a man and his father {have sexual relations with} the same girl, so that [they] profane my holy name.
8 They stretch themselves out beside every altar on clothing taken in pledge and they drink wine, bought with fines imposed, in the house of their God.
9 Yet I destroyed the Amorite {before them}, {who was as tall as} cedars and was as strong as the oaks. I destroyed his fruit above and his roots beneath.
10 And I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and I led you in the wilderness forty years to take possession of the land of the Amorite.
11 And I raised up some [of] your sons to [be] prophets and some [of] your young men to [be] Nazirites. Is it not so, O {people} of Israel? [This is] the declaration of Yahweh!
12 But you made the Nazirites drink wine and commanded the prophets, saying, 'You shall not prophesy.'
13 Look! I [am] going to press [you] down in your place just as a utility cart full of mature stalks of grain [is pressed down].
14 Flight will perish from [the] swift and [the] strong person will not muster his strength and [the] warrior will not save his life.
15 And [the] one who takes hold of the bow will not stand and [the one who is] swift on his feet will not save himself, nor will [the] one who rides the horse save his life.
16 Even those who are strong of heart among the mighty will flee away naked from the city on that day. [This is] the declaration of Yahweh!"
