Jeremiah - Chapter 48
15 Moab has been ravaged, his cities scaled, the flower of his youth goes down to the slaughter, declares the King, whose name is Yahweh Sabaoth.
25 Moab's horn has been cut off, his arm is broken, Yahweh declares.
28 Leave the towns, make the rocks your home, inhabitants of Moab. Learn from the dove that makes its nest in the walls of the gaping gorge.
30 -I know all about his presumption, Yahweh declares, his empty boasting, those empty deeds of his!
38 On all the housetops of Moab and in all its squares there is nothing but lamenting, for I have broken Moab like an unwanted pot, Yahweh declares.
42 Moab will be destroyed, no longer a people, for setting itself up against Yahweh.
43 Terror, the pit and the snare for you, inhabitant of Moab, Yahweh declares.
44 And anyone who escapes from terror will fall into the pit, and anyone who climbs out of the pit will be caught in the snare. Yes, I shall bring all this on Moab when the year comes for punishing them, Yahweh declares.
45 In the shelter of Heshbon the fugitives have paused, exhausted. But fire will burst from Heshbon, a flame from the palace of Sihon, consuming the brows of Moab, the head of a turbulent brood.
47 But I shall bring back Moab's captives in the final days, Yahweh declares. Thus far the judgement on Moab.
