Certainly in a night Ar of Moab is devastated and ruined; Certainly in a night Kir of Moab is devastated and ruined. 2 [a]The people have gone up to the [b]temple and toDibon, to the high places to weep. Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba; Everyone’s head is bald and every beard is cut off. 3 In their streets they have put on sackcloth; On their housetops and in their public squares Everyone is wailing, [c]overcome with weeping. 4 Heshbon and Elealeh also cry out, Their voice is heard all the way to Jahaz; Therefore the [d]armed men of Moab cry aloud; His soul trembles within him. 5 My heart cries out for Moab; His fugitives are as far as Zoar and Eglath-shelishiyah, For they go up the ascent of Luhith weeping; Indeed, on the road to Horonaim they raise a cry of distress over their collapse. 6 For the waters of Nimrim are [e]desolate. Indeed, the grass is withered, the new growth has died, There is no greenery. 7 Therefore the abundance which they have acquired and stored up, They carry it off over the brook of [f]Arabim. 8 For the cry of distress has gone around the territory of Moab, Its wailing goes as far as Eglaim and its howling to Beer-elim. 9 For the waters of Dimon are full of [g]blood; I will certainly bring added woes upon Dimon, A lion upon the fugitives of Moab and the remnant of the land.
Isaiah 15:2Lit He has gone; i.e., Moab, meaning the people of Moab
