A Message about Moab
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:1 - This message came to me concerning Moab:
In one night the town of Ar will be leveled,
and the city of Kir will be destroyed.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:2 - Your people will go to their temple in Dibon to mourn.
They will go to their sacred shrines to weep.
They will wail for the fate of Nebo and Medeba,
shaving their heads in sorrow and cutting off their beards.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:3 - They will wear burlap as they wander the streets.
From every home and public square will come the sound of wailing.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:4 - The people of Heshbon and Elealeh will cry out;
their voices will be heard as far away as Jahaz!
The bravest warriors of Moab will cry out in utter terror.
They will be helpless with fear.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:5 - My heart weeps for Moab.
Its people flee to Zoar and Eglath-shelishiyah.
Weeping, they climb the road to Luhith.
Their cries of distress can be heard all along the road to Horonaim.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:6 - Even the waters of Nimrim are dried up!
The grassy banks are scorched.
The tender plants are gone;
nothing green remains.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:7 - The people grab their possessions
and carry them across the Ravine of Willows.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:8 - A cry of distress echoes through the land of Moab
from one end to the other—
from Eglaim to Beer-elim.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 15:9 - The stream near Dibon[fn] runs red with blood,
but I am still not finished with Dibon!
Lions will hunt down the survivors—
both those who try to escape
and those who remain behind.
