1 Thus has the Lord said concerning MOAB, Woe to Nabau! for it has perished: Cariathaim is taken: Amath and Agath are put to shame. 2 There is no longer any healing for Moab, nor glorying in Esebon: he has devised evils against her: we have cut her off from being a nation, and she shall be completely still: after thee shall go a sword; 3 for there is a voice of men crying out of Oronaim, destruction and great ruin. 4 Moab is ruined, proclaim it to Zogora: 5 for Aloth is filled with weeping: one shall go up weeping by the way of Oronaim; ye have heard a cry of destruction. 6 Flee ye, and save your lives, and ye shall be as a wild ass in the desert. 7 Since thou hast trusted in thy strong-hold, therefore thou shalt be taken: and Chamos shall go forth into captivity, and his priests, and his princes together. 8 And destruction shall come upon every city, it shall by no means escape; the valley also shall perish, and the plain country shall be completely destroyed, as the Lord has said. 9 Set marks upon Moab, for she shall be touched with a plague-spot, and all her cities shall become desolate; whence shall there be an inhabitant for her? 10 Cursed is the man that does the works of the Lord carelessly, keeping back his sword from blood. 11 Moab has been at ease from a child, and trusted in his glory; he has not poured out his liquor from vessel to vessel, and has not gone into banishment, therefore his taste remained in him, and his smell departed not. 12 Therefore, behold, his days come, saith the Lord, when I shall send upon him bad leaders, and they shall lead him astray, and they shall utterly break in pieces his possessions, and shall cut his horns asunder. 13 And Moab shall be ashamed of Chamos, as the house of Israel was ashamed of Baethel their hope, having trusted in them. 14 How will ye say, We are strong, and men strong for war? 15 Moab is ruined, even his city, and his choice young men have gone down to slaughter. 16 The day of Moab is near at hand, and his iniquity moves swiftly to vengeance. 17 Shake the head at him, all ye that are round about him; all of you utter his name; say ye, How is the glorious staff broken to pieces, the rod of magnificence! 18 Come down from thy glory, and sit down in a damp place: Daebon shall be broken, because Moab is destroyed: there has gone up against thee one to ravage thy strong-hold. 19 Stand by the way, and look, thou that dwellest in Aroer; and ask him that is fleeing, and him that escapes, and say, What has happened? 20 Moab is put to shame, because he is broken: howl and cry; proclaim in Arnon, that Moab has perished. 21 And judgment is coming against the land of Misor, upon Chelon, and Rephas, and Mophas, 22 and upon Daebon, and upon Nabau, and upon the house of Daethlathaim, 23 and upon Cariathaim, and upon the house of Gaemol, and upon the house of Maon, 24 and upon Carioth, and upon Bosor, and upon all the cities of Moab, far and near. 25 The horn of Moab is broken, and his arm is crushed. 26 Make ye him drunk; for he has magnified himself against the Lord: and Moab shall clap with his hand, and shall be also himself a laughing-stock. 27 For surely Israel was to thee a laughing-stock, and was found among thy thefts, because thou didst fight against him. 28 The inhabitants of Moab have left the cities, and dwelt in rocks; they have become as doves nestling in rocks, at the mouth of a cave. 29 And I have heard of the pride of Moab, he has greatly heightened his pride and his haughtiness, and his heart has been lifted up. 30 But I know his works: is it not enough for him? has he not done thus? 31 Therefore howl ye for Moab on all sides; cry out against the shorn men in a gloomy place. I will weep for thee, 32 O vine of Aserema, as with the weeping of Jazer: thy branches are gone over the sea, they reached the cities of Jazer: destruction has come upon thy fruits, and upon thy grape-gatherers. 33 Joy and gladness have been utterly swept off the land of Moab: and though there was wine in thy presses, in the morning they trod it not, neither in the evening did they raise the cry of joy. 34 From the cry of Esebon even to Ætam their cities uttered their voice, from Zogor to Oronaim, and their tidings as a heifer of three years old, for the water also of Nebrin shall be dried up. [*] 35 And I will destroy Moab, saith the Lord, as he comes up to the altar, and burns incense to his gods. 36 Therefore the heart of Moab shall sound as pipes, my heart shall sound as a pipe for the shorn men; forasmuch as what every man has gained has perished from him. 37 They shall all have their heads shaved in every place, and every beard shall be shaved; and all hands shall beat the breasts, and on all loins shall be sackcloth. 38 And on all the housetops of Moab, and in his streets shall be mourning: for I have broken him, saith the Lord, as a vessel, which is useless. 39 How has he changed! how has Moab turned his back! Moab is put to shame, and become a laughing-stock, and an object of anger to all that are round about him. 40 For thus said the Lord; 41 Carioth is taken, and the strong-holds have been taken together. 42 And Moab shall perish from being a multitude, because he has magnified himself against the Lord. 43 A snare, and fear, and the pit, are upon thee, O inhabitant of Moab. 44 He that flees from the terror shall fall into the pit, and he that comes up out of the pit shall even be taken in the snare: for I will bring these things upon Moab in the year of their visitation. (Μασ. ΜΗ´) Τῇ Μωάβ. - ΟΥΤΩΣ εἶπε Κύριος· οὐαὶ ἐπὶ Ναβαῦ, ὅτι ὤλετο· ἐλήφθη Καριαθαίμ, ᾐσχύνθη ᾿Αμὰθ καὶ ἡττήθη. 2 οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι ἰατρεία Μωάβ, γαυρίαμα ἐν ᾿Εσεβών· ἐλογίσαντο ἐπ’ αὐτὴν κακά· ἐκόψαμεν αὐτὴν ἀπὸ ἔθνους, καὶ παῦσιν παύσεται, ὄπισθέν σου βαδιεῖται μάχαιρα. 3 ὅτι φωνὴ κεκραγότων ἐξ ᾿Ωρωναίμ, ὄλεθρος καὶ σύντριμμα μέγα· 4 συνετρίβη Μωάβ, ἀναγγείλατε εἰς Ζογόρα, 5 ὅτι ἐπλήσθη ᾿Αλὼθ ἐν κλαυθμῷ, ἀναβήσεται κλαίων ἐν ὁδῷ ᾿Ωρωναίμ, κραυγὴν συντρίμματος ἠκούσατε· 6 φεύγετε καὶ σώσατε τὰς ψυχὰς ὑμῶν καὶ ἔσεσθε ὥσπερ ὄνος ἄγριος ἐν ἐρήμῳ. 7 ἐπειδὴ ἐπεποίθεις ἐν ὀχυρώμασί σου, καὶ σὺ συλληφθήσῃ· καὶ ἐξελεύσεται Χαμὼς ἐν ἀποικίᾳ καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες αὐτοῦ ἅμα. 8 καὶ ἥξει ὄλεθρος ἐπὶ πᾶσαν πόλιν, καὶ πόλις οὐ μὴ σωθῇ, καὶ ἀπολεῖται ὁ αὐλών, καὶ ἐξολοθρευθήσεται ἡ πεδινή, καθὼς εἶπε Κύριος. 9 δότε σημεῖα τῇ Μωάβ, ὅτι ἁφῇ ἀναφθήσεται, καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ πόλεις αὐτῆς εἰς ἄβατον ἔσονται· πόθεν ἔνοικος αὐτῇ; 10 ἐπικατάρατος ὁ ποιῶν τὰ ἔργα Κυρίου ἀμελῶς, ἐξαίρων μάχαιραν αὐτοῦ ἀφ’ αἵματος. 11 ἀνεπαύσατο Μωὰβ ἐκ παιδαρίου καὶ πεποιθὼς ἦν ἐπὶ τῇ δόξῃ αὐτοῦ, οὐκ ἐνέχεεν ἐξ ἀγγείου εἰς ἀγγεῖον καὶ εἰς ἀποικισμὸν οὐκ ᾤχετο· διὰ τοῦτο ἔστη γεῦμα αὐτοῦ ἐν αὐτῷ, καὶ ὀσμὴ αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐξέλιπε. 12 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι αὐτοῦ ἔρχονται, φησὶ Κύριος, καὶ ἀποστελῶ αὐτῷ κλίνοντας, καὶ κλινοῦσιν αὐτὸν καὶ τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ λεπτυνοῦσι καὶ τὰ κέρατα αὐτοῦ συγκόψουσι. 13 καὶ καταισχυνθήσεται Μωὰβ ἀπὸ Χαμώς, ὥσπερ κατῃσχύνθη οἶκος ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπὸ Βαιθὴλ ἐλπίδος αὐτῶν πεποιθότες ἐπ’ αὐτοῖς. 14 πῶς ἐρεῖτε· ἰσχυροί ἐσμεν καὶ ἄνθρωπος ἰσχύων εἰς τὰ πολεμικά; 15 ὤλετο Μωὰβ πόλις αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐκλεκτοὶ νεανίσκοι αὐτοῦ κατέβησαν εἰς σφαγήν· 16 ἐγγὺς ἡμέρα Μωὰβ ἐλθεῖν, καὶ πονηρία αὐτοῦ ταχεῖα σφόδρα. 17 κινήσατε αὐτῷ, πάντες κυκλόθεν αὐτοῦ, πάντες εἰδότες ὄνομα αὐτοῦ· εἴπατε· πῶς συνετρίβη βακτηρία εὐκλεής, ῥάβδος μεγαλώματος; 18 κατάβηθι ἀπὸ δόξης καὶ κάθισον ἐν ὑγρασίᾳ, καθημένη Δαιβών· ἐκτριβήσεται, ὅτι ὤλετο Μωάβ, ἀνέβη εἰς σὲ λυμαινόμενος ὀχύρωμά σου. 19 ἐφ’ ὁδοῦ στῆθι καὶ ἔπιδε, καθημένη ἐν ᾿Αροήρ, καὶ ἐρώτησον φεύγοντα καὶ σῳζόμενον καὶ εἰπόν· τί ἐγένετο; 20 κατῃσχύνθη Μωάβ, ὅτι συνετρίβη· ὀλόλυξον καὶ κέκραξον, ἀνάγγειλον ἐν ᾿Αρνών, ὅτι ὤλετο Μωάβ· 21 καὶ κρίσις ἔρχεται εἰς τὴν γῆν Μεισὼρ ἐπὶ Χελὼν καὶ Ῥεφὰς καὶ Μωφὰθ 22 καὶ ἐπὶ Δαιβὼν καὶ ἐπὶ Ναβαῦ καὶ ἐπ’ οἶκον Δαιβλαθαὶμ 23 καὶ ἐπὶ Καριαθαὶμ καὶ ἐπ’ οἶκον Γαιμὼλ καὶ ἐπ’ οἶκον Μαὼν 24 καὶ ἐπὶ Καριὼθ καὶ ἐπὶ Βοσὸρ καὶ ἐπὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις Μωὰβ τὰς πόρρω καὶ τὰς ἐγγύς. 25 κατεάχθη κέρας Μωάβ, καὶ τὸ ἐπίχειρον αὐτοῦ συνετρίβη. 26 μεθύσατε αὐτόν, ὅτι ἐπὶ Κύριον ἐμεγαλύνθη· καὶ ἐπικρούσει Μωὰβ ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔσται εἰς γέλωτα καὶ αὐτός. 27 καὶ εἰ μὴ εἰς γελοιασμὸν ἦν σοι ᾿Ισραήλ; ἢ ἐν κλοπαῖς σου εὑρέθη, ὅτι ἐπολέμεις αὐτόν; 28 κατέλιπον τὰς πόλεις καὶ ᾤκησαν ἐν πέτραις οἱ κατοικοῦντες Μωάβ, ἐγενήθησαν ὥσπερ περιστεραί νοσσεύουσαι ἐν πέτραις στόματι βοθύνου. 29 ἤκουσα ὕβριν Μωάβ, ὕβρισε λίαν ὕβριν αὐτοῦ καὶ ὑπερηφανίαν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ὑψώθη ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ. 30 ἐγὼ δὲ ἔγνων ἔργα αὐτοῦ· οὐχὶ τὸ ἱκανὸν αὐτοῦ, οὐχ οὕτως ἐποίησε. 31 διὰ τοῦτο ἐπὶ Μωὰβ ὀλολύζετε πάντοθεν, βοήσατε ἐπ’ ἄνδρας κειράδας αὐχμοῦ· 32 ὡς κλαυθμὸν ᾿Ιαζὴρ ἀποκλαύσομαί σοι, ἄμπελος Σεβημά, κλήματά σου διῆλθε θάλασσαν, ᾿Ιαζὴρ ἥψαντο· ἐπὶ ὀπώραν σου, ἐπὶ τρυγηταῖς σου ὄλεθρος ἐπέπεσε. 33 συνεψήθη χαρμοσύνη καὶ εὐφροσύνη ἐκ τῆς Μωαβίτιδος καὶ οἶνος ἦν ἐπὶ ληνοῖς σου· πρωΐ οὐκ ἐπάτησαν οὐδὲ δείλης, οὐκ ἐποίησαν αἰδάδ. 34 ἀπὸ κραυγῆς ᾿Εσεβὼν ἕως ᾿Ελεαλὴ αἱ πόλεις αὐτῶν ἔδωκαν φωνὴν αὐτῶν, ἀπὸ Ζογὸρ ἕως ᾿Ωρωναὶμ καὶ ᾿Αγλάθ-Σαλισία, ὅτι καὶ τὸ ὕδωρ Νεβρεὶν εἰς κατάκαυμα ἔσται. 35 καὶ ἀπολῶ τὸν Μωάβ, φησὶ Κύριος, ἀναβαίνοντα ἐπὶ τὸν βωμὸν καὶ θυμιῶντα θεοῖς αὐτοῦ. 36 διὰ τοῦτο καρδία μου, Μωάβ, ὥσπερ αὐλοὶ βομβήσουσι, καρδία μου ἐπ’ ἀνθρώπους κειράδας ὥσπερ αὐλὸς βομβήσει· διὰ τοῦτο ἃ περιεποιήσατο, ἀπώλετο ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπου. 37 πᾶσαν κεφαλὴν ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ ξυρηθήσονται, καὶ πᾶς πώγων ξυρηθήσεται, καὶ πᾶσαι χεῖρες κόψονται, καὶ ἐπὶ πάσης ὀσφύος σάκκος. 38 καὶ ἐπὶ πάντων τῶν δωμάτων Μωὰβ καὶ ἐπὶ ταῖς πλατείαις αὐτῆς, ὅτι συνέτριψα τὸν Μωάβ, φησὶ Κύριος, ὡς ἀγγεῖον, οὗ οὐκ ἔστι χρεία αὐτοῦ. 39 πῶς κατήλλαξε; πῶς ἔστρεψε νῶτον Μωάβ; ᾐσχύνθη καὶ ἐγένετο Μωὰβ εἰς γέλωτα καὶ ἐγκότημα πᾶσι τοῖς κύκλῳ αὐτῆς. 40 ὅτι οὕτως εἶπε Κύριος· 41 ἐλήφθη ᾿Ακκαριώθ, καὶ τὰ ὀχυρώματα συνελήφθη· 42 καὶ ἀπολεῖται Μωὰβ ἀπὸ ὄχλου, ὅτι ἐπὶ τὸν Κύριον ἐμεγαλύνθη. 43 παγὶς καὶ φόβος καὶ βόθυνος ἐπὶ σοί, καθήμενος Μωάβ· 44 ὁ φεύγων ἀπὸ προσώπου τοῦ φόβου ἐμπεσεῖται εἰς τὸν βόθυνον, καὶ ὁ ἀναβαίνων ἐκ τοῦ βοθύνου συλληφθήσεται ἐν τῇ παγίδι, ὅτι ἐπάξω ταῦτα ἐπὶ Μωὰβ ἐν ἐνιαυτῷ ἐπισκέψεως αὐτῆς.

* In the Hebrew, Eglath-shelishiyah (shĕliyshiy 3 years old, eglath relating to a calf) may be construed as equivalent to the Greek Ἀγλάθ-Σαλισία, translated in the Septuagint as “a heifer of three years old”. [Elpenor]
