Their voice is heard all the way to Jahaz;

His soul trembles within him.

Those who flee from her are as far as Zoar and Eglath-shelishiyah,

Surely on the road to Horonaim they keep awake with crying in distress over their destruction.

Surely I will put added woes upon Dimon,

A lion upon those of Moab who have escaped and upon the remnant of the land.
