Jeremiah 48 ©
The judgment of Moab, for presuming upon her wealth, her uninterrupted prosperity, and her strength for war, and for her contempt of God, and insult toward his people. The restoration of Moab.
Moab is destroyed; her little ones have caused a cry to be heard.
For in the going up of Luhith 4continual weeping shall go up; for in the going down of Horonaim the enemies have heard a cry of destruction.
Flee, save your lives, and be like 5the heath in the wilderness.
Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will send unto him wanderers, that shall cause him to wander, and shall empty his vessels, and break their bottles.
14Kerioth is taken, and the strong holds are surprised, and the mighty men's hearts in Moab at that day shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.
uWoe be unto thee, O Moab! the people of Chemosh perisheth: for thy sons are taken 16captives, and thy daughters captives.
