Isaiah 16 ©
The Moabite is exhorted to yield obedience to the throne of David. He is threatened for his pride with lamentable judgments, and that within three years.
And gin mercy shall the throne be 6established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the htabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.
For lthe fields of Heshbon languish, and the vine of Sibmah: the lords of the heathen have broken down the principal plants thereof, they are come even unto mJazer, they wandered through the wilderness: her branches are 9stretched out, they are gone over the sea.
¶nTherefore I will bewail with the weeping of Jazer the vine of Sibmah: I will water thee with my tears, O Heshbon, and Elealeh: for 10the shouting for thy summer fruits and for thy harvest is fallen.
This is the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning Moab tsince that time.
But now the LORD hath spoken, saying, Within three years, uas the years of an hireling, and the glory of Moab shall be *contemned, with all that great multitude; and the remnant shall be very small and 11feeble.
