Judgment on Moab

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:1 - The pronouncement concerning Moab:
Certainly in a night Ar of Moab is devastated and ruined;
Certainly in a night Kir of Moab is devastated and ruined.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:2 - [fn]The people have gone up to the [fn]temple and to Dibon, to the high places to weep.
Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba;
Everyone’s head is bald and every beard is cut off.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:3 - In their streets they have put on sackcloth;
On their housetops and in their public squares
Everyone is wailing, [fn]overcome with weeping.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:4 - Heshbon and Elealeh also cry out,
Their voice is heard all the way to Jahaz;
Therefore the [fn]armed men of Moab cry aloud;
His soul trembles within him.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:5 - My heart cries out for Moab;
His fugitives are as far as Zoar and Eglath-shelishiyah,
For they go up the ascent of Luhith weeping;
Indeed, on the road to Horonaim they raise a cry of distress over their collapse.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:6 - For the waters of Nimrim are [fn]desolate.
Indeed, the grass is withered, the new growth has died,
There is no greenery.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:7 - Therefore the abundance which they have acquired and stored up,
They carry it off over the brook of [fn]Arabim.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:8 - For the cry of distress has gone around the territory of Moab,
Its wailing goes as far as Eglaim and its howling to Beer-elim.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:9 - For the waters of Dimon are full of [fn]blood;
I will certainly bring added woes upon Dimon,
A lion upon the fugitives of Moab and the remnant of the land.
