Isaiah 16
New Living Translation
16Send lambs from Sela as tribute to the ruler of the land. Send them through the desert to the mountain of beautiful Zion.H7971H3733H4910H776H5554H4057H2022H1323H6726 2The women of Moab are left like homeless birds at the shallow crossings of the Arnon River.H5074H5775H7971H7064H1323H4124H4569H769 3“Help us,” they cry. “Defend us against our enemies. Protect us from their relentless attack. Do not betray us now that we have escaped.H935H6098H6213H6415H7896H6738H3915H8432H6672H5641H5080H1540H5074 4Let our refugees stay among you. Hide them from our enemies until the terror is past.” When oppression and destruction have ended and enemy raiders have disappeared,H5080H1481H4124H1933H5643H6440H7703H4160H656H7701H3615H7429H8552H776 5then God will establish one of David’s descendants as king. He will rule with mercy and truth. He will always do what is just and be eager to do what is right.H2617H3678H3559H3427H571H168H1732H8199H1875H4941H4106H6664 6We have heard about proud Moab—about its pride and arrogance and rage. But all that boasting has disappeared.H8085H1347H4124H3966H1341H1346H1347H5678H907 7The entire land of Moab weeps. Yes, everyone in Moab mourns for the cakes of raisins from Kir-hareseth. They are all gone now.H4124H3213H4124H3213H808H7025H1897H5218 8The farms of Heshbon are abandoned; the vineyards at Sibmah are deserted. The rulers of the nations have broken down Moab—that beautiful grapevine. Its tendrils spread north as far as the town of Jazer and trailed eastward into the wilderness. Its shoots reached so far west that they crossed over the Dead Sea.H7709H2809H535H1612H7643H1167H1471H1986H8291H5060H3270H8582H4057H7976H5203H5674H3220 9So now I weep for Jazer and the vineyards of Sibmah; my tears will flow for Heshbon and Elealeh. There are no more shouts of joy over your summer fruits and harvest.H1058H1065H3270H1612H7643H7301H1832H2809H500H1959H7019H7105H5307 10Gone now is the gladness, gone the joy of harvest. There will be no singing in the vineyards, no more happy shouts, no treading of grapes in the winepresses. I have ended all their harvest joys.H8057H622H1524H3759H3754H7442H7321H1869H1869H3196H3342H1959H7673 11My heart’s cry for Moab is like a lament on a harp. I am filled with anguish for Kir-hareseth.H4578H1993H3658H4124H7130H7025 12The people of Moab will worship at their pagan shrines, but it will do them no good. They will cry to the gods in their temples, but no one will be able to save them.H7200H4124H3811H1116H935H4720H6419H3201 13The Lord has already said these things about Moab in the past.H1697H3068H1696H4124H227 14But now the Lord says, “Within three years, counting each day, the glory of Moab will be ended. From its great population, only a few of its people will be left alive.”H3068H1696H559H7969H8141H8141H7916H3519H4124H7034H7227H1995H7605H4592H4213H3808H3524
