Mab

1Oracle on Moab: Laid waste in a night, Ar of Moab is destroyed; Laid waste in a night, Kir of Moab is destroyed. q Is 16, 7 . 2Up goes daughter Dibon r Jer 48, 38f . to the high places to weep; Over Nebo and over Medeba Moab wails. Every head is shaved, every beard sheared off.* 3In the streets they wear sackcloth, lamenting and weeping; On rooftops and in the squares everyone wails. 4Heshbon and Elealeh cry out, they are heard as far as Jahaz. At this the loins of Moab tremble, his soul quivers within him; s Jer 48, 34 . 5The heart of Moab cries out, his fugitives reach Zoar [Eglath‐shelishiyah]. The ascent of Luhith they climb weeping; On the way to Horonaim t Is 16, 9; Jer 48, 3 . they utter rending cries.

6The waters of Nimrim have become a waste; The grass is withered, new growth is gone, nothing is green. 7So now whatever they have acquired or stored away they carry across the Gorge of the Poplars, 8For the cry has gone round the land of Moab; As far as Eglaim the wailing, and to Beer‐elim, the wail. 9The waters of Dimon were filled with blood,* but I will bring still more upon Dimon: Lions for those who are fleeing from Moab and for those who remain in the land!
