on the housetops and in the squares
everyone wails and melts in tears.

therefore the armed men of Moab cry aloud;
his soul trembles.

her fugitives flee to Zoar,
to Eglath-shelishiyah.
For at the ascent of Luhith
they go up weeping;
on the road to Horonaim
they raise a cry of destruction;

are a desolation;
the grass is withered, the vegetation fails,
the greenery is no more.

and what they have laid up
they carry away
over the Brook of the Willows.

her wailing reaches to Beer-elim.

for I will bring upon Dibon even more,
a lion for those of Moab who escape,
for the remnant of the land.
