A Prophecy Against Moab

16:6–12pp—Jer 48:29–36

15 A prophecyy against Moab:z

Ara in Moab is ruined,b

destroyed in a night!

Kirc in Moab is ruined,

destroyed in a night!

Dibond goes up to its temple,

to its high placese to weep;

Moab wailsf over Nebog and Medeba.

Every head is shavedh

and every beard cut off.i

In the streets they wear sackcloth;j

on the roofsk and in the public squaresl

they all wail,m

prostrate with weeping.n

Heshbono and Elealehp cry out,

their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz.q

Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out,

and their hearts are faint.

My heart cries outr over Moab;s

her fugitivest flee as far as Zoar,u

as far as Eglath Shelishiyah.

They go up the hill to Luhith,

weeping as they go;

on the road to Horonaimv

they lament their destruction.w

The waters of Nimrim are dried upx

and the grass is withered;y

the vegetation is gonez

and nothing green is left.a

So the wealth they have acquiredb and stored up

they carry away over the Ravine of the Poplars.

Their outcry echoes along the border of Moab;

their wailing reaches as far as Eglaim,

their lamentation as far as Beerc Elim.

The waters of Dimona are full of blood,

but I will bring still more upon Dimonb

a liond upon the fugitives of Moabe

and upon those who remain in the land.
