The lamentable state of Moab.
Isaiah 15:1 The burden of Moab: because in the night Ar of Moab is laide waste [and] brought to silence; because in the night Kir of Moab is laide waste, [and] brought to silence: Isaiah 15:2 Hee is gone vp to Baijth, and to Dibon, the high places, to weepe: Moab shall howle ouer Nebo, and ouer Medeba, on all their heads [shalbe] baldnesse, [and] euery beard cut off. Isaiah 15:3 In their streetes they shall girde themselues with sackecloth: on the toppes of their houses, and in their streetes euery one shall howle, weeping abundantly. Isaiah 15:4 And Heshbon shall cry, and Elealeh: their voice shalbe heard [euen] vnto Iahaz: therefore the armed souldiers of Moab shall crie out, his life shall be grieuous vnto him. Isaiah 15:5 My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitiues [shall flee] vnto Zoar, an heifer of three yeeres olde: for by the mounting vp of Luhith with weeping shall they goe it vp: for in the way of Horonaim, they shall raise vp a crie of destruction. Isaiah 15:6 For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grasse faileth, there is no greene thing. Isaiah 15:7 Therefore the abundance they haue gotten, and that which they haue laide vp, shall they cary away to the brooke of the willowes. Isaiah 15:8 For the cry is gone round about the borders of Moab: the howling thereof vnto Eglaim, and the howling thereof vnto Beer-Elim. Isaiah 15:9 For the waters of Dimon shalbe full of blood: for I will bring more vpon Dimon, lyons vpon him that escapeth of Moab, and vpon the remnant of the land.
