1 To Moab, thus says Jehovah of Armies, the God of Israel: Woe to Nebo! For it is devastated, it is shamed; Kiriathaim is captured; Misgab is shamed and dismayed.

2 There shall no longer be the praise of Moab; in Heshbon they have thought evil against it; come, and let us cut· it ·off from being a nation. Also Madhmen, thou shalt be·​·still; the sword shall go after thee.

3 A voice of a cry shall be from Horonaim, devastation and great breaking.

4 Moab is broken; her little ones have caused crying to be heard.

5 For with* the going·​·up of Luhith with weeping weeping shall go·​·up; for in the going·​·down of Horonaim the adversaries have heard a cry of breaking.

6 Flee, cause· your souls ·to·​·escape and be like the naked shrub* in the wilderness.

7 For because thou hast trusted in thy works and in thy treasures, thou shalt also be taken; and Chemosh shall go forth into exile with his priests and his princes together.

8 And the devastator shall come upon every city, and no city shall·​·escape; the valley also shall perish, and the plateau shall be blotted·​·out, as Jehovah has said.

9 Give wing to Moab, for flying·​·forth she will fly·​·forth; and her cities shall be for a desolation, without any to dwell in them.

10 Cursed be he who does the work* of Jehovah deceitfully, and cursed be he who withholds his sword from blood.

11 Moab has been·​·at·​·ease from his* youth, and he has been·​·quiet on his lees*, and has not been emptied from vessel to vessel, and he has not gone into exile; therefore his taste remained* in him, and his smell is not altered.

12 Therefore, behold, the days come, says Jehovah, and I will send to him those who travel·​·forth, who shall cause him to travel·​·forth, and his vessels they shall empty, their jugs they shall shatter.

13 And Moab shall be·​·ashamed of Chemosh, as the house of Israel was·​·ashamed of Bethel their trust.

14 How do you say, We are mighty and strong men for the war?

15 Moab is devastated, and her cities have gone·​·up, and the choice of his chosen have gone·​·down to the butchering, says the King; Jehovah of Armies is His name.

16 The downfall of Moab is near to come, and his evil hastes exceedingly.

17 All ye who are around him, be·​·sorry for him; and all ye who know his name, say, How is the rod of strength broken, the stick of adornment!

18 Come·​·down from glory, and sit in thirst, thou who sittest, O daughter of Dibon; for the devastator of Moab shall go·​·up against thee, and he shall destroy thy fortifications.

19 Stand at the way, and watch; O thou who dwellest in Aroer, ask him who flees, and her who escapes, and say, What has come·​·to·​·pass?

20 Moab is shamed, for it is dismayed. Howl and cry; tell ye in Arnon that Moab is devastated,

21 and judgment has come to the land of the plateau; to Holon, and to Jahatsah, and on Mephaath,

22 and upon Dibon, and upon Nebo, and upon Beth-diblathaim,

23 and upon Kiriathaim, and upon Beth-gamul, and upon Beth-meon,

24 and upon Kerioth, and upon Bozrah, and upon all the cities of the land of Moab, far or near.

25 The horn of Moab is hewn·​·off, and his arm is broken, says Jehovah.

26 Make· him ·drunken; for he magnified himself against Jehovah; and Moab shall clap his hands in his vomit, and he also shall be laughed·​·at.

27 For was not Israel laughed·​·at by thee, was· he not ·found among thieves? For after thy speaking against him, thou hast been·​·sorry for him.

28 O ye who dwell in Moab, forsake the cities, and inhabit the rock, and be as the dove that nests across the mouth of the chasm.

29 We have heard the pride of Moab, he is very proud, his haughtiness, and his pridefulness, and his pride, and the exalting of his own heart.

30 I know his wrath, says Jehovah; but it is not right; what he devises does not make it right.

31 Therefore will I howl for Moab, and I will cry out for all Moab; mine heart shall moan for the men of Kir-cheres.

32 From the weeping of Jazer I will weep for thee, O vine of Sibmah; thine extending tendrils have crossed·​·over the sea, they reach even·​·to the sea of Jazer; upon thy summer·​·fruit and upon thy vintage the devastator has fallen.

33 And gladness and rejoicing are gathered from Carmel, and from the land of Moab; and I have caused wine to cease from the winepresses; none shall tread with hedad*; hedad shall not be hedad.

34 From the cry of Heshbon even·​·to Elealeh, even·​·to Jahaz, they have given forth their voice, from Zoar even·​·to Horonaim, as a heifer of the third year; for even the waters of Nimrim shall be for desolations.

35 And I will cause to cease in Moab, says Jehovah, him who offers·​·up in the high·​·place, and him who burns·​·incense to his gods.

36 Therefore my heart for Moab shall make·​·a·​·noise as pipes, and my heart for the men of Kir-cheres shall make·​·a·​·noise as pipes; therefore the remnant of what he has made has perished.

37 For every head shall be bald, and every beard diminished; upon all the hands shall be gashes, and upon the loins sackcloth.

38 On all the roofs of Moab, and in her avenues, there shall be all manner of wailing; for I have broken Moab as a vessel wherein there is no delight, says Jehovah.

39 They shall howl, How dismayed she is! How Moab has turned the back with shame! And Moab shall be laughed·​·at and a dismay to all who are around him.

40 For thus says Jehovah: Behold, he shall soar as an eagle, and shall spread his wings to Moab.

41 The walled·​·city is captured, and the forts are occupied, and the heart of the heroes of Moab in that day shall be as the heart of a woman in·​·adversity.

42 And Moab shall be blotted·​·out from being a people, because he has magnified himself against Jehovah.

43 Dread, and a chasm, and a trap, shall be upon thee, O dweller of Moab, says Jehovah.

44 He who flees from before the dread shall fall into the chasm; and he that comes·​·up from the chasm shall be captured in the trap; for I will bring upon it, even upon Moab, the year of their visitation, says Jehovah.

45 They who fled from the power stood in the shadow of Heshbon; for a fire shall come·​·out from Heshbon, and a flame from between Sihon, and shall devour the quarter of Moab, and the top·​·of·​·the·​·head of the sons of Shaon*.

46 Woe be unto thee, O Moab! the people of Chemosh perishes; for thy sons are taken into captivity, and thy daughters into captivity.

47 Yet will I return the captivity of Moab in the latter days, says Jehovah. Thus far is the judgment of Moab.
