023:016:001
Send ye the lamb to the ruler of the land from Sela to the wilderness,
unto the mount of the daughter of Zion.


023:016:002
For it shall be,
that,
as a wandering bird cast out of the nest,
so the daughters of Moab shall be at the fords of Arnon.


023:016:003
Take counsel,
execute judgment;
make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday;
hide the outcasts;
bewray not him that wandereth.


023:016:004
Let mine outcasts dwell with thee,
Moab;
be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler:
for the extortioner is at an end,
the spoiler ceaseth,
the oppressors are consumed out of the land.


023:016:005
And in mercy shall the throne be established:
and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David,
judging,
and seeking judgment,
and hasting righteousness.


023:016:006
We have heard of the pride of Moab;
he is very proud:
even of his haughtiness,
and his pride,
and his wrath:
but his lies shall not be so.


023:016:007
Therefore shall Moab howl for Moab,
every one shall howl:
for the foundations of Kirhareseth shall ye mourn;
surely they are stricken.


023:016:008
For the fields of Heshbon languish,
and the vine of Sibmah:
the lords of the heathen have broken down the principal plants thereof,
they are come even unto Jazer,
they wandered through the wilderness:
her branches are stretched out,
they are gone over the sea.


023:016:009
Therefore I will bewail with the weeping of Jazer the vine of Sibmah:
I will water thee with my tears,
O Heshbon,
and Elealeh:
for the shouting for thy summer fruits and for thy harvest is fallen.


023:016:010
And gladness is taken away,
and joy out of the plentiful field;
and in the vineyards there shall be no singing,
neither shall there be shouting:
the treaders shall tread out no wine in their presses;
I have made their vintage shouting to cease.


023:016:011
Wherefore my bowels shall sound like an harp for Moab,
and mine inward parts for Kirharesh.


023:016:012
And it shall come to pass,
when it is seen that Moab is weary on the high place,
that he shall come to his sanctuary to pray;
but he shall not prevail.


023:016:013
This is the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning Moab since that time.


023:016:014
But now the LORD hath spoken,
saying,
Within three years,
as the years of an hireling,
and the glory of Moab shall be contemned,
with all that great multitude;
and the remnant shall be very small and feeble.
