The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 15

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

1 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;

2 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.

3 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.

4 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.

5 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.

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

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

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

9 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.
