Isaiah 15 The Passion Translation (TPT)
The Lord’s Judgment of Moab
15 Here is a prophecy concerning Moab:
The city of Ar was devastated, destroyed in the night.
The city of Kir was devastated, destroyed in the night.
2 The people of Dibon went to their temple to weep;
they went up to their high places to lament.
Moab wails with sorrow over what happened
to Mount Nebo and Mount Medeba.
Humiliated, every head is shaved bald and every beard cut off.
3 They pour into the streets wearing sackcloth.
In public and in private, they fall down sobbing.
4 The cities of Heshbon and Elealah cry out;
their voices are heard as far away as Jahaz;
even the bravest warriors of Moab are shaken to the core.
5 My heart cries out for the people of Moab,
for her fugitives who flee to Zoar and to Eglath-shelishiyah.
Weeping, they climb the upward road to Luhith.
Their loud cries of anguish are heard
all along the way to Horonaim.
6 The River Nimrim has dried up; the grass has withered;
new growth has failed, and vegetation has vanished.
7 Therefore, the refugees take with them
over the Wadi of the Willows
their possessions and the wealth they have acquired.
8 From one end of the land to the other, Moab is weeping;
her wailing reaches to Eglaim and Beer-Elim.
9 For the waters of Dimon are full of blood,
but I have something even worse in store for them:
lions for the fugitives of Moab
and upon the remnant of the land!
Isaiah 15 New International Version (NIV)
A Prophecy Against Moab
15 A prophecy against Moab:
Ar in Moab is ruined,
destroyed in a night!
Kir in Moab is ruined,
destroyed in a night!
2 Dibon goes up to its temple,
to its high places to weep;
Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba.
Every head is shaved
and every beard cut off.
3 In the streets they wear sackcloth;
on the roofs and in the public squares
they all wail,
prostrate with weeping.
4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out,
their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz.
Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out,
and their hearts are faint.
5 My heart cries out over Moab;
her fugitives flee as far as Zoar,
as far as Eglath Shelishiyah.
They go up the hill to Luhith,
weeping as they go;
on the road to Horonaim
they lament their destruction.
6 The waters of Nimrim are dried up
and the grass is withered;
the vegetation is gone
and nothing green is left.
7 So the wealth they have acquired and stored up
they carry away over the Ravine of the Poplars.
8 Their outcry echoes along the border of Moab;
their wailing reaches as far as Eglaim,
their lamentation as far as Beer Elim.
9 The waters of Dimon are full of blood,
but I will bring still more upon Dimon—
a lion upon the fugitives of Moab
and upon those who remain in the land.
