48:2 The praise of Moab is no more; in Heshbon they have devised evil against her: Come, and let us cut her off from being a nation. You also, Madmen, shall be brought to silence: the sword shall pursue you.
48:3 The sound of a cry from Horonaim, desolation and great destruction!
48:4 Moab is destroyed; her little ones have caused a cry to be heard.
48:5 For by the ascent of Luhith with continual weeping shall they go up; for at the descent of Horonaim they have heard the distress of the cry of destruction.
48:6 Flee, save your lives, and be like the heath in the wilderness.
48:7 For, because you have trusted in your works and in your treasures, you also shall be taken: and Chemosh shall go forth into captivity, his priests and his princes together.
48:8 The destroyer shall come on every city, and no city shall escape; the valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed; as Yahweh has spoken.
48:9 Give wings to Moab, that she may fly and get her away: and her cities shall become a desolation, without any to dwell therein.
48:10 Cursed be he who does the work of Yahweh negligently; and cursed be he who keeps back his sword from blood.
48:11 Moab has been at ease from his youth, and he has settled on his lees, and has not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither has he gone into captivity: therefore his taste remains in him, and his scent is not changed.
48:12 Therefore, behold, the days come, says Yahweh, that I will send to him those who pour off, and they shall pour him off; and they shall empty his vessels, and break their bottles in pieces.
48:13 Moab shall be ashamed of Chemosh, as the house of Israel was ashamed of Bethel their confidence.
48:16 The calamity of Moab is near to come, and his affliction hurries fast.
48:18 You daughter who dwells in Dibon, come down from your glory, and sit in thirst; for the destroyer of Moab is come up against you, he has destroyed your strongholds.
48:19 Inhabitant of Aroer, stand by the way, and watch: ask him who flees, and her who escapes; say, What has been done?
48:20 Moab is put to shame; for it is broken down: wail and cry; tell you it by the Arnon, that Moab is laid waste.
48:21 Judgment is come on the plain country, on Holon, and on Jahzah, and on Mephaath,
48:22 and on Dibon, and on Nebo, and on Beth-diblathaim,
48:23 and on Kiriathaim, and on Beth-gamul, and on Beth-meon,
48:24 and on Kerioth, and on Bozrah, and on all the cities of the land of Moab, far or near.
48:25 The horn of Moab is cut off, and his arm is broken, says Yahweh.
48:26 Make you him drunken; for he magnified himself against Yahweh: and Moab shall wallow in his vomit, and he also shall be in derision.
48:27 For wasn`t Israel a derision to you? was he found among thieves? for as often as you speak of him, you wag the head.
48:29 We have heard of the pride of Moab, [that] he is very proud; his loftiness, and his pride, and his arrogance, and the haughtiness of his heart.
48:30 I know his wrath, says Yahweh, that it is nothing; his boastings have worked nothing.
48:31 Therefore will I wail for Moab; yes, I will cry out for all Moab: for the men of Kir-heres shall they mourn.
48:32 With more than the weeping of Jazer will I weep for you, vine of Sibmah: your branches passed over the sea, they reached even to the sea of Jazer: on your summer fruits and on your vintage the destroyer is fallen.
48:33 Gladness and joy is taken away from the fruitful field and from the land of Moab; and I have caused wine to cease from the wine presses: none shall tread with shouting; the shouting shall be no shouting.
48:37 For every head is bald, and every beard clipped: on all the hands are cuttings, and on the loins sackcloth.
48:38 On all the housetops of Moab and in the streets of it there is lamentation every where; for I have broken Moab like a vessel in which none delights, says Yahweh.
48:39 How is it broken down! [how] do they wail! how has Moab turned the back with shame! so shall Moab become a derision and a terror to all who are round about him.
48:40 For thus says Yahweh: Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread out his wings against Moab.
48:42 Moab shall be destroyed from being a people, because he has magnified himself against Yahweh.
48:43 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are on you, inhabitant of Moab, says Yahweh.
48:44 He who flees from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he who gets up out of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for I will bring on him, even on Moab, the year of their visitation, says Yahweh.
48:45 Those who fled stand without strength under the shadow of Heshbon; for a fire is gone forth out of Heshbon, and a flame from the midst of Sihon, and has devoured the corner of Moab, and the crown of the head of the tumultuous ones.
48:47 Yet will I bring back the captivity of Moab in the latter days, says Yahweh. Thus far is the judgment of Moab.
