He is gone up to fBajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl over gNebo, and over hMedeba: ion all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off.

In their streets they shall *gird themselves jwith sackcloth: kon the tops of their houses, and in their streets, every one shall howl, 2weeping abundantly.


And lHeshbon shall cry, and mElealeh: their voice shall be heard even unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall ncry out; his life shall be grievous unto him.

oMy heart shall cry out for Moab; 3his fugitives shall flee unto Zoar, an heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith pwith weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise up a cry of 4destruction.


For the waters of qNimrim shall be 5desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grass faileth, there is no green thing.


Therefore rthe abundance they have *gotten, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the 6brook of the willows.


For the cry is gone sround about the borders of Moab; the howling thereof unto Eglaim, and the howling thereof unto tBeer-elim.
