ISA-16:1 Send ye the lamb to the ruler of the land from Sela to

the wilderness, unto the mount of the daughter of Zion.

ISA-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


ISA-16:3 Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the

night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; bewray not

him that wandereth.

ISA-16:4 Let mine 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.

ISA-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.

ISA-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.

ISA-16:7 Therefore shall Moab howl for Moab, every one shall

howl: for the foundations of Kirhareseth shall ye mourn; surely

[they are] stricken.

ISA-16:8 For the fields of Heshbon languish, [and] the vine of

Sibmah: the lords of the heathen have broken down the principal

plants thereof, they are come [even] unto Jazer, they wandered

[through] the wilderness: her branches are stretched out, they

are gone over the sea.

ISA-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.

ISA-16:10 And gladness is taken away, and joy out of 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


ISA-16:11 Wherefore my bowels shall sound like an harp for Moab,

and mine inward parts for Kirharesh.

ISA-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.

ISA-16:13 This [is] the word that the LORD hath spoken

concerning Moab since that time.

ISA-16:14 But now the LORD hath spoken, saying, Within three

years, as the years of an hireling, and the glory of Moab shall

be contemned, with all that great multitude; and the remnant

[shall be] very small [and] feeble.
