The book of the prophet Isaiah, chapter 15, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 15


   1 Oraculum Moab. Quia nocte vastata est Ar moab, conticuit; quia nocte vastata est Cirmoab, conticuit.
   2 Ascendit filia Dibon ad excelsa in planctum; super Nabo et super Medaba Moab ululavit; in cunctis capitibus eius calvitium, omnis barba rasa.
   3 In triviis eius accincti sunt sacco; super tecta eius et in plateis eius omnes ululant, prorumpunt in fletum.
   4 Clamat Hesebon et Eleale, usque Iasa auditur vox eorum; super hoc expediti Moab fremunt, anima eius fremit sibi.
   5 Cor meum super Moab clamat, vectes eius usque ad Segor, Eglatselisiam; per ascensum enim Luith flentes ascendunt et in via Oronaim clamorem contritionis levant.
   6 Aquae enim Nemrim desertae erunt, quia aruit herba, defecit germen, viror omnis interiit.
   7 Ideo supellectiles colligunt, copias divitiarum suas trans torrentem Salicum ducunt.
   8 Quoniam circuivit clamor terminum Moab; usque ad Eglaim ululatus eius, et usque ad Beerelim clamor eius.
   9 Quia aquae Dimon repletae sunt sanguine; ponam enim super Dimon additamenta his, qui fugerint de Moab leonem, et reliquiis terrae.

King James Version

   1 The burden of Moab. Because in the night Ar of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence;
   2 He is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off.
   3 In their streets they shall gird themselves with sackcloth: on the tops of their houses, and in their streets, every one shall howl, weeping abundantly.
   4 And Heshbon shall cry, and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard even unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous unto him.
   5 My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives shall flee unto Zoar, an heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise up a cry of destruction.
   6 For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grass faileth, there is no green thing.
   7 Therefore the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the brook of the willows.
   8 For the cry is gone round about the borders of Moab; the howling thereof unto Eglaim, and the howling thereof unto Beer-elim.
   9 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.
