for it is spoiled: Kiriathaim is confounded and taken: Misgab is confounded

against it; come, and let us cut it off from being a nation. Also thou shalt
be cut down, O Madmen; the sword shall pursue thee.
3 A voice of crying shall be from Horonaim, spoiling and great destruction.
4 Moab is destroyed; her little ones have caused a cry to be heard.
5 For in the going up of Luhith continual weeping shall go up; for in the
going down of Horonaim the enemies have heard a cry of destruction.
6 Flee, save your lives, and be like the heath in the wilderness.
7 For because thou hast trusted in thy works and in thy treasures, thou shalt
also be taken: and Chemosh shall go forth into captivity with his priests and
his princes together.
8 And the spoiler shall come upon every city, and no city shall escape: the
valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed, as the LORD hath
9 Give wings unto Moab, that it may flee and get away: for the cities thereof
shall be desolate, without any to dwell therein.
10 Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he
that keepeth back his sword from blood.
11 Moab hath been at ease from his youth, and he hath settled on his lees, and
hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither hath he gone into
captivity: therefore his taste remained in him, and his scent is not changed.
12 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will send unto him
wanderers, that shall cause him to wander, and shall empty his vessels, and
break their bottles.
13 And Moab shall be ashamed of Chemosh, as the house of Israel was ashamed of
Bethel their confidence.
14 How say ye, We are mighty and strong men for the war?
15 Moab is spoiled, and gone up out of her cities, and his chosen young men
are gone down to the slaughter, saith the King, whose name is the LORD of
16 The calamity of Moab is near to come, and his affliction hasteth fast.
17 All ye that are about him, bemoan him; and all ye that know his name, say,
How is the strong staff broken, and the beautiful rod!
18 Thou daughter that dost inhabit Dibon, come down from thy glory, and sit in
thirst; for the spoiler of Moab shall come upon thee, and he shall destroy thy
19 O inhabitant of Aroer, stand by the way, and espy; ask him that fleeth, and
her that escapeth, and say, What is done?
20 Moab is confounded; for it is broken down: howl and cry; tell ye it in
Arnon, that Moab is spoiled,
21 And judgment is come upon the plain country; upon Holon, and upon Jahazah,
and upon Mephaath,
22 And upon Dibon, and upon Nebo, and upon Bethdiblathaim,
23 And upon Kiriathaim, and upon Bethgamul, and upon Bethmeon,
24 And upon Kerioth, and upon Bozrah, and upon all the cities of the land of
Moab, far or near.
25 The horn of Moab is cut off, and his arm is broken, saith the LORD.
26 Make ye him drunken: for he magnified himself against the LORD: Moab also
shall wallow in his vomit, and he also shall be in derision.
27 For was not Israel a derision unto thee? was he found among thieves? for
since thou spakest of him, thou skippedst for joy.
28 O ye that dwell in Moab, leave the cities, and dwell in the rock, and be
like the dove that maketh her nest in the sides of the hole’s mouth.
29 We have heard the pride of Moab, (he is exceeding proud) his loftiness, and
his arrogancy, and his pride, and the haughtiness of his heart.
30 I know his wrath, saith the LORD; but it shall not be so; his lies shall
not so effect it.
31 Therefore will I howl for Moab, and I will cry out for all Moab; mine heart
shall mourn for the men of Kirheres.
32 O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for thee with the weeping of Jazer: thy
plants are gone over the sea, they reach even to the sea of Jazer: the spoiler
is fallen upon thy summer fruits and upon thy vintage.
33 And joy and gladness is taken from the plentiful field, and from the land
of Moab; and I have caused wine to fail from the winepresses: none shall tread
with shouting; their shouting shall be no shouting.
34 From the cry of Heshbon even unto Elealeh, and even unto Jahaz, have they
uttered their voice, from Zoar even unto Horonaim, as an heifer of three years
old: for the waters also of Nimrim shall be desolate.
35 Moreover I will cause to cease in Moab, saith the LORD, him that offereth
in the high places, and him that burneth incense to his gods.
36 Therefore mine heart shall sound for Moab like pipes, and mine heart shall
sound like pipes for the men of Kirheres: because the riches that he hath
gotten are perished.
37 For every head shall be bald, and every beard clipped: upon all the hands
shall be cuttings, and upon the loins sackcloth.
38 There shall be lamentation generally upon all the housetops of Moab, and in
the streets thereof: for I have broken Moab like a vessel wherein is no
pleasure, saith the LORD.
39 They shall howl, saying, How is it broken down! how hath Moab turned the
back with shame! so shall Moab be a derision and a dismaying to all them about
40 For thus saith the LORD; Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread
his wings over Moab.
41 Kerioth is taken, and the strong holds are surprised, and the mighty men’s
hearts in Moab at that day shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.
42 And Moab shall be destroyed from being a people, because he hath magnified
himself against the LORD.
43 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, shall be upon thee, O inhabitant of Moab,
saith the LORD.
44 He that fleeth from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that getteth
up out of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for I will bring upon it, even
upon Moab, the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.

taken captives, and thy daughters captives.

LORD. Thus far is the judgment of Moab.
