Jeremiah 48:26-28 Expanded Bible (EXB)

26 “The people of Moab thought they were greater than the Lord,
    so ·punish them until they act as if they are drunk [L make them drunk].
Moab will ·fall and roll around [wallow; or overflow] in its own vomit,
    and people will even make fun of it [C they would drink from the cup of wrath; 25:15–38; Is. 19:14; 51:17; Nah. 1:10].
27 Moab, you made fun of Israel.
    Israel was ·caught [or not found] in the middle of a gang of thieves.
When you spoke about Israel,
    you shook your head [C acting as if Moab were better].
28 People in Moab, ·leave your towns empty [L abandon; forsake]
    and go live among the ·rocks [crags].
Be like a dove that makes its nest
    at the entrance of a cave.

Jeremiah 48:26-28 New International Version (NIV)

26 “Make her drunk,
    for she has defied the Lord.
Let Moab wallow in her vomit;
    let her be an object of ridicule.
27 Was not Israel the object of your ridicule?
    Was she caught among thieves,
that you shake your head in scorn
    whenever you speak of her?
28 Abandon your towns and dwell among the rocks,
    you who live in Moab.
Be like a dove that makes its nest
    at the mouth of a cave.
