The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 15

Moab will be laid waste, and her people will howl and weep.

 The aburden of bMoab. Because in the night cAr of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; because in the night Kir of dMoab is laid waste, and brought to silence;

 He is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads shall be abaldness, and every beard bcut off.

 In their streets they shall gird themselves with sackcloth: on the tops of their houses, and in their streets, every one shall howl, weeping abundantly.

 And Heshbon shall acry, and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard even unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous unto him.

 My aheart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives shall flee unto Zoar, an bheifer of three years old: for by cthe mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of dHoronaim they shall raise up a cry of destruction.

 For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grass faileth, there is no green thing.

 Therefore the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the abrook of the willows.

 For the cry is gone round about the borders of Moab; the howling thereof unto Eglaim, and the howling thereof unto aBeer-elim.

 For the waters of Dimon shall be full of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapeth of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land.
