Isaiah 16


16:1 Send ye the lamb to the ruler of the land from Sela to the
 wilderness, to the mount of the daughter of Zion.
16:2 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.
16:3 Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the
 night in the midst of the noon-day; hide the outcasts; discover
 not him that wandereth.
16:4 Let my 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.
16:5 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.
16:6 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.
16:7 Therefore shall Moab howl for Moab, every one shall howl:
 for the foundations of Kir-hareseth shall ye mourn; surely
 [they are] stricken.
16:8 For the fields of Heshbon languish, [and] the vine of
 Sibmah: the lords of the heathen have broken down her principal
 plants, they have come [even] to Jazer, they wandered [through]
 the wilderness: her branches are extended, they have gone over
 the sea.
16:9 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.
16:10 And gladness is taken away, and joy from 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.
16:11 Wherefore my bowels shall sound like a harp for Moab, and
 my inward parts for Kir-haresh.
16:12 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.
16:13 This [is] the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning
 Moab since that time.
16:14 But now the LORD hath spoken, saying, Within three years,
 as the years of a hireling, and the glory of Moab shall be
 contemned, with all that great multitude; and the remnant
 [shall be] very small [and] feeble.
