Ah, in the night Ar was sacked, Moab was ruined; Ah, in the night Kir was sacked, Moab was ruined.

Over Nebo and Medeba Moab is wailing; On every head is baldness, Every beard is shorn. 3In its streets, they are girt with sackcloth; On its roofs, in its squares, Everyone is wailing, Streaming with tears. 4Heshbon and Elealeh cry out, Their voice carries to Jahaz. Therefore, b‐ Change of vocalization yields “The loins of Moab are trembling.” The shock troops of Moab shout, ‐b Change of vocalization yields “The loins of Moab are trembling.” His body is convulsed. 5My heart cries out for Moab— His fugitives flee down to Zoar, To Eglath‐shelishiyah. For the ascent of Luhith They ascend with weeping; On the road to Horonaim They raise a cry of anguish.
