Isaiah Chapter 15 | Parsha:

1The “Moab” Pronouncement.
Ah, in the night Ar was sacked,
Moab was ruined;
Ah, in the night Kir was sacked,
Moab was ruined.

2He went up to the temple to weep,
Dibon [went] to the outdoor shrines.
Over Nebo and Medeba
Moab is wailing;
On every head is baldness,
Every beard is shorn.

3In its streets, they are girt with sackcloth;
On its roofs, in its squares,
Everyone is wailing,
Streaming with tears.

4Heshbon and Elealeh cry out,
Their voice carries to Jahaz.
The shock troops of Moab shout,
His body is convulsed.

5My heart cries out for Moab—
His fugitives flee down to Zoar,
To Eglath-shelishiyah.
For the ascent of Luhith
They ascend with weeping;
On the road to Horonaim
They raise a cry of anguish.

6Ah, the waters of Nimrim
Are become a desolation;
The grass is sear,
The herbage is gone,
Vegetation is vanished.

The gains they have made, and their stores,
They carry to the Wadi of Willows.

8Ah, the cry has compassed
The country of Moab:
All the way to Eglaim her wailing,
Even at Beer-elim her wailing!

9Ah, the waters of Dimon are full of blood
For I pour added [water] on Dimon;
I drench it—for Moab’s refugees—
With soil for its remnant.
