Jeremiah 48:39-41 English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)

39 How it is broken! How they wail! How Moab has turned his back in shame! So Moab has become a derision and a horror to all that are round him.”

40 For thus says the Lord:
“Behold, one shall fly swiftly like an eagle
    and spread his wings against Moab;
41 the cities shall be taken
    and the strongholds seized.
The heart of the warriors of Moab shall be in that day
    like the heart of a woman in her birth pains;

Jeremiah 48:39-41 New International Version (NIV)

39 “How shattered she is! How they wail!
    How Moab turns her back in shame!
Moab has become an object of ridicule,
    an object of horror to all those around her.”

40 This is what the Lord says:

“Look! An eagle is swooping down,
    spreading its wings over Moab.
41 Kerioth[a] will be captured
    and the strongholds taken.
In that day the hearts of Moab’s warriors
    will be like the heart of a woman in labor.
