The lamentable state of Moab.
Isaiah 15:1 The oracle on Moab: Because, in a night, was laid waste Ar of Moabdestroyed! Because, in a night, was laid waste Kir of Moabdestroyed, Isaiah 15:2 He hath gone up to Bayith and Dibon, to the high places, to weep,On Nebo and on Medeba, Moab is howling, On all their heads, a baldness, Every beard, clipped. Isaiah 15:3 In their streets, have they girded them with sackcloth,On their housetops, and in their broadways, every one is howlingmelting in tears; Isaiah 15:4 And Heshbon, hath made outcry, and Elealeh, Unto Jahaz, hath been heard their voice,For this cause, do the armed men of Moab roar, Every man's soul, quivereth to him. Isaiah 15:5 Mine own heart, for Moab continueth to make outcry, Her fugitive, as far as Zoar, is like a heifer of three years; For, the accent of Luhith, with weeping, they ascend, For, by the way of Horonaiman outcry of destruction, they excite; Isaiah 15:6 For, the waters of Nimrim, shall become, desolation,For grass, hath dried up, Herbage, hath failed, Green thing, hath not sprung up! Isaiah 15:7 For this cause, the savings they had made, and that which they had stored, Over the torrent-bed of the willows, shall they bear them. Isaiah 15:8 For the outcry, hath gone round, the boundary of Moab,As far as Eglaim, the howling thereof, And, to Beer-elim, the howling thereof. Isaiah 15:9 For, the waters of Dimon, are full of blood, For I will lay upon Dimon new troubles,To the escaped of Moab, the lions, Even to the survivors on the soil.
