ISAIAH 15An Oracle Concerning Moab 15:1 An oracle concerning Moab.Because Ar of Moab is laid waste in a night,Moab is undone;because Kir of Moab is laid waste in a night,Moab is undone. 2 He has gone up to the temple, and to Dibon,to the high places to weep;over Nebo and over MedebaMoab wails.On every head is baldness;every beard is shorn; 3 in the streets they wear sackcloth;on the housetops and in the squareseveryone wails and melts in tears. 4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out;their voice is heard as far as Jahaz;therefore the armed men of Moab cry aloud;his soul trembles. 5 My heart cries out for Moab;her fugitives flee to Zoar,to Eglath-shelishiyah.For at the ascent of Luhiththey go up weeping;on the road to Horonaimthey raise a cry of destruction; 6 the waters of Nimrimare a desolation;the grass is withered, the vegetation fails,the greenery is no more. 7 Therefore the abundance they have gainedand what they have laid upthey carry awayover the Brook of the Willows. 8 For a cry has gonearound the land of Moab;her wailing reaches to Eglaim;her wailing reaches to Beer-elim. 9 For the waters of Dibon are full of blood;for I will bring upon Dibon even more,a lion for those of Moab who escape,for the remnant of the land.
