Isaiah 15 New King James Version

The Oracle concerning Moab

15 1  The burden against Moab. Because in the night Ar of Moab is laid waste And destroyed, Because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste And destroyed, 2  He has gone up to the temple and Dibon, To the high places to weep. Moab will wail over Nebo and over Medeba; On all their heads will be baldness, And every beard cut off. 3  In their streets they will clothe themselves with sackcloth; On the tops of their houses And in their streets Everyone will wail, weeping bitterly. 4  Heshbon and Elealeh will cry out, Their voice shall be heard as far as Jahaz; Therefore the armed soldiers of Moab will cry out; His life will be burdensome to him. 5  "My heart will cry out for Moab; His fugitives shall flee to Zoar, Like a three-year-old heifer. For by the Ascent of Luhith They will go up with weeping; For in the way of Horonaim They will raise up a cry of destruction,

6  For the waters of Nimrim will be desolate, For the green grass has withered away; The grass fails, there is nothing green. 7  Therefore the abundance they have gained, And what they have laid up, They will carry away to the Brook of the Willows. 8  For the cry has gone all around the borders of Moab, Its wailing to Eglaim And its wailing to Beer Elim. 9  For the waters of Dimon will be full of blood; Because I will bring more upon Dimon, Lions upon him who escapes from Moab, And on the remnant of the land."
