The lamentable state of Moab.
Isaiah 15:1 This is the heuy burthen vpon Moab: Ar of Moab was destroyed & ouerthrowen in þe nyght season: Kir also in Moab was destroyed & peryshed in the nyght. Isaiah 15:2 They wente vp to the ydols house, euen to Dibon to the hye places, to wepe for Nebo, and Moab dyd mourne for Medba: All theyr heades, were balde & all theyr beardes shauen. Isaiah 15:3 In theyr stretes are they gyrded aboute with sack cloth. In all þe toppes of their houses & stretes shalbe nothynge but mournynge & wepynge. Isaiah 15:4 Hesebon & Eleale shall crye, þt theyr voyce shalbe hearde vnto Iahaz. The worthyes also of Moab shall bleare out and crye for very sorow of their Myndes: Isaiah 15:5 Wo shall my herte be for Moabs sake. They shal flye vnto þe cyte of Zoar, which is lyke a fayre yong bullock of thre yere olde, for they shall all go vp to Luith, wepinge. Euen so by þe waye toward Horonaim they shall make lamentacion for ther vtter destruccion. Isaiah 15:6 For þe waters of Nimrim shalbe dried vp, by reason wherof þe grasse is withred, þe herbes destroyed, & the grene thynges gone. Isaiah 15:7 For the residue þt he hath done, they are sory. As for theyr substaunce, þe enemyes haue caried them to the broke of þe wyllyes. Isaiah 15:8 For þe crie went ouer þe whole lande of Moab: vnto Eglaim & vnto Beer Elim was there nothing but mournyng, Isaiah 15:9 because the waters of Dimon were full of bloude: for I the Lord shall sende more bloude vpon Dimon, & lyons vpon the remnaunt of the lande, & on them that are escaped from Moab.
