48:1 Against Moab [H4124] thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; Woe [H1945] unto Nebo [H5015] ! for it is spoiled [H7703] : Kiriathaim [H7156] is confounded [H3001] [and] taken [H3920] : Misgab [H4869] is confounded [H3001] and dismayed [H2865] .(Misgab: or, the high place)
48:2 [There shall be] no more praise [H8416] of Moab [H4124] : in Heshbon [H2809] they have devised [H2803] evil [H7451] against it; come [H3212] , and let us cut it off [H3772] from [being] a nation [H1471] . Also thou shalt be cut down [H1826] , O Madmen [H4086] ; the sword [H2719] shall pursue [H3212] thee [H310] .(be cut: or, be brought to silence)(pursue: Heb. go after thee)
48:3 A voice [H6963] of crying [H6818] [shall be] from Horonaim [H2773] , spoiling [H7701] and great [H1419] destruction [H7667] .
48:4 Moab [H4124] is destroyed [H7665] ; her little ones [H6810] have caused a cry [H2201] to be heard [H8085] .
48:5 For in the going up [H4608] of Luhith [H3872] continual [H1065] weeping [H1065] shall go up [H5927] ; for in the going down [H4174] of Horonaim [H2773] the enemies [H6862] have heard [H8085] a cry [H6818] of destruction [H7667] .(continual: Heb. weeping with weeping)
48:6 Flee [H5127] , save [H4422] your lives [H5315] , and be [H1961] like the heath [H6176] in the wilderness [H4057] .(the heath: or, a naked tree)
48:7 For because thou hast trusted [H982] in thy works [H4639] and in thy treasures [H214] , thou shalt also be taken [H3920] : and Chemosh [H3645] shall go forth [H3318] into captivity [H1473] [with] his priests [H3548] and his princes [H8269] together [H3162] .
48:8 And the spoiler [H7703] shall come [H935] upon every city [H5892] , and no city [H5892] shall escape [H4422] : the valley [H6010] also shall perish [H6] , and the plain [H4334] shall be destroyed [H8045] , as the LORD [H3068] hath spoken [H559] .
48:9 Give [H5414] wings [H6731] unto Moab [H4124] , that it may flee [H5323] and get away [H3318] : for the cities [H5892] thereof shall be desolate [H8047] , without any to dwell [H3427] therein [H2004] .
48:10 Cursed [H779] [be] he that doeth [H6213] the work [H4399] of the LORD [H3068] deceitfully [H7423] , and cursed [H779] [be] he that keepeth back [H4513] his sword [H2719] from blood [H1818] .(deceitfully: or, negligently)
48:11 Moab [H4124] hath been at ease [H7599] from his youth [H5271] , and he hath settled [H8252] on his lees [H8105] , and hath not been emptied [H7324] from vessel [H3627] to vessel [H3627] , neither hath he gone [H1980] into captivity [H1473] : therefore his taste [H2940] remained [H5975] in him, and his scent [H7381] is not changed [H4171] .(remained: Heb. stood)
48:12 Therefore, behold, the days [H3117] come [H935] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , that I will send [H7971] unto him wanderers [H6808] , that shall cause him to wander [H6808] , and shall empty [H7324] his vessels [H3627] , and break [H5310] their bottles [H5035] .
48:13 And Moab [H4124] shall be ashamed [H954] of Chemosh [H3645] , as the house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] was ashamed [H954] of Bethel [H1008] their confidence [H4009] .
48:14 How say [H559] ye, We [are] mighty [H1368] and strong [H2428] men [H582] for the war [H4421] ?
48:15 Moab [H4124] is spoiled [H7703] , and gone up [H5927] [out of] her cities [H5892] , and his chosen [H4005] young men [H970] are gone down [H3381] to the slaughter [H2874] , saith [H5002] the King [H4428] , whose name [H8034] [is] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] .(his: Heb. the choice of)
48:16 The calamity [H343] of Moab [H4124] [is] near [H7138] to come [H935] , and his affliction [H7451] hasteth [H4116] fast [H3966] .
48:17 All ye that are about [H5439] him, bemoan [H5110] him; and all ye that know [H3045] his name [H8034] , say [H559] , How is the strong [H5797] staff [H4294] broken [H7665] , [and] the beautiful [H8597] rod [H4731] !
48:18 Thou daughter [H1323] that dost inhabit [H3427] Dibon [H1769] , come down [H3381] from [thy] glory [H3519] , and sit [H3427] in thirst [H6772] ; for the spoiler [H7703] of Moab [H4124] shall come [H5927] upon thee, [and] he shall destroy [H7843] thy strong holds [H4013] .
48:19 O inhabitant [H3427] of Aroer [H6177] , stand [H5975] by the way [H1870] , and espy [H6822] ; ask [H7592] him that fleeth [H5127] , and her that escapeth [H4422] , [and] say [H559] , What is done [H1961] ?(inhabitant: Heb. inhabitress)
48:20 Moab [H4124] is confounded [H3001] ; for it is broken down [H2865] : howl [H3213] and cry [H2199] ; tell [H5046] ye it in Arnon [H769] , that Moab [H4124] is spoiled [H7703] ,
48:21 And judgment [H4941] is come [H935] upon the plain [H4334] country [H776] ; upon Holon [H2473] , and upon Jahazah [H3096] , and upon Mephaath [H4158] ,
48:22 And upon Dibon [H1769] , and upon Nebo [H5015] , and upon Bethdiblathaim [H1015] ,
48:23 And upon Kiriathaim [H7156] , and upon Bethgamul [H1014] , and upon Bethmeon [H1010] ,
48:24 And upon Kerioth [H7152] , and upon Bozrah [H1224] , and upon all the cities [H5892] of the land [H776] of Moab [H4124] , far [H7350] or near [H7138] .
48:25 The horn [H7161] of Moab [H4124] is cut off [H1438] , and his arm [H2220] is broken [H7665] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
48:26 Make ye him drunken [H7937] : for he magnified [H1431] [himself] against the LORD [H3068] : Moab [H4124] also shall wallow [H5606] in his vomit [H6892] , and he also shall be in derision [H7814] .
48:27 For was not Israel [H3478] a derision [H7814] unto thee? was he found [H4672] among thieves [H1590] ? for since [H1767] thou spakest [H1697] of him, thou skippedst [H5110] for joy.(skippedst: or, movedst thyself)
48:28 O ye that dwell [H3427] in Moab [H4124] , leave [H5800] the cities [H5892] , and dwell [H7931] in the rock [H5553] , and be like the dove [H3123] [that] maketh her nest [H7077] in the sides [H5676] of the hole's [H6354] mouth [H6310] .
48:29 We have heard [H8085] the pride [H1347] of Moab [H4124] , (he is exceeding [H3966] proud [H1343] ) his loftiness [H1363] , and his arrogancy [H1346] , and his pride [H1347] , and the haughtiness [H7312] of his heart [H3820] .
48:30 I know [H3045] his wrath [H5678] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] ; but [it shall] not [be] so; his lies [H907] shall not so effect [H6213] [it].(his lies: or, those on whom he stayeth (Heb. his bars) do not right)
48:31 Therefore will I howl [H3213] for Moab [H4124] , and I will cry out [H2199] for all Moab [H4124] ; [mine heart] shall mourn [H1897] for the men [H582] of Kirheres [H7025] .
48:32 O vine [H1612] of Sibmah [H7643] , I will weep [H1058] for thee with the weeping [H1065] of Jazer [H3270] : thy plants [H5189] are gone over [H5674] the sea [H3220] , they reach [H5060] [even] to the sea [H3220] of Jazer [H3270] : the spoiler [H7703] is fallen [H5307] upon thy summer fruits [H7019] and upon thy vintage [H1210] .
48:33 And joy [H8057] and gladness [H1524] is taken [H622] from the plentiful field [H3759] , and from the land [H776] of Moab [H4124] ; and I have caused wine [H3196] to fail [H7673] from the winepresses [H3342] : none shall tread [H1869] with shouting [H1959] ; [their] shouting [H1959] [shall be] no shouting [H1959] .
48:34 From the cry [H2201] of Heshbon [H2809] [even] unto Elealeh [H500] , [and even] unto Jahaz [H3096] , have they uttered [H5414] their voice [H6963] , from Zoar [H6820] [even] unto Horonaim [H2773] , [as] an heifer [H5697] of three years old [H7992] : for the waters [H4325] also of Nimrim [H5249] shall be desolate [H4923] .(desolate: Heb. desolations)
48:35 Moreover I will cause to cease [H7673] in Moab [H4124] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] , him that offereth [H5927] in the high places [H1116] , and him that burneth incense [H6999] to his gods [H430] .
48:36 Therefore mine heart [H3820] shall sound [H1993] for Moab [H4124] like pipes [H2485] , and mine heart [H3820] shall sound [H1993] like pipes [H2485] for the men [H582] of Kirheres [H7025] : because the riches [H3502] [that] he hath gotten [H6213] are perished [H6] .
48:37 For every head [H7218] [shall be] bald [H7144] , and every beard [H2206] clipped [H1639] : upon all the hands [H3027] [shall be] cuttings [H1417] , and upon the loins [H4975] sackcloth [H8242] .(clipped: Heb. diminished)
48:38 [There shall be] lamentation [H4553] generally upon all the housetops [H1406] of Moab [H4124] , and in the streets [H7339] thereof: for I have broken [H7665] Moab [H4124] like a vessel [H3627] wherein [is] no pleasure [H2656] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
48:39 They shall howl [H3213] , [saying], How is it broken down [H2865] ! how hath Moab [H4124] turned [H6437] the back [H6203] with shame [H954] ! so shall Moab [H4124] be a derision [H7814] and a dismaying [H4288] to all them about [H5439] him.(back: Heb. neck)
48:40 For thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] ; Behold, he shall fly [H1675] as an eagle [H5404] , and shall spread [H6566] his wings [H3671] over Moab [H4124] .
48:41 Kerioth [H7152] is taken [H3920] , and the strong holds [H4679] are surprised [H8610] , and the mighty men's [H1368] hearts [H3820] in Moab [H4124] at that day [H3117] shall be as the heart [H3820] of a woman [H802] in her pangs [H6887] .(Kerioth: or, The cities)
48:42 And Moab [H4124] shall be destroyed [H8045] from [being] a people [H5971] , because he hath magnified [H1431] [himself] against the LORD [H3068] .
48:43 Fear [H6343] , and the pit [H6354] , and the snare [H6341] , [shall be] upon thee, O inhabitant [H3427] of Moab [H4124] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
48:44 He that fleeth [H5127] [H5211] from [H6440] the fear [H6343] shall fall [H5307] into the pit [H6354] ; and he that getteth up [H5927] out of the pit [H6354] shall be taken [H3920] in the snare [H6341] : for I will bring [H935] upon it, [even] upon Moab [H4124] , the year [H8141] of their visitation [H6486] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] .
48:45 They that fled [H5127] stood [H5975] under the shadow [H6738] of Heshbon [H2809] because of the force [H3581] : but a fire [H784] shall come forth [H3318] out of Heshbon [H2809] , and a flame [H3852] from the midst [H996] of Sihon [H5511] , and shall devour [H398] the corner [H6285] of Moab [H4124] , and the crown of the head [H6936] of the tumultuous [H7588] ones [H1121] .(tumultuous: Heb. children of noise)
48:46 Woe [H188] be unto thee, O Moab [H4124] ! the people [H5971] of Chemosh [H3645] perisheth [H6] : for thy sons [H1121] are taken [H3947] captives [H7628] , and thy daughters [H1323] captives [H7633] .(captives, and: Heb. in captivity, etc)
48:47 Yet will I bring again [H7725] the captivity [H7622] of Moab [H4124] in the latter [H319] days [H3117] , saith [H5002] the LORD [H3068] . Thus far [H2008] [is] the judgment [H4941] of Moab [H4124] .
