unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous unto him.

unto Zoar, an bheifer
of three years old: for by cthe
mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of dHoronaim
they shall raise up a cry of destruction.
For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grass faileth, there is no green thing.
Therefore the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the abrook
of the willows.
For the cry is gone round about the borders of Moab; the howling thereof unto Eglaim, and the howling thereof unto aBeer
For the waters of Dimon shall be full of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapeth of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land.
