4 Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; 4 Be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: 4 For the [d]extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth, 4 [e]The oppressors are consumed out of the land.
8 For ch. 24:7the fields of Heshbon languish, and ver. 9the vine of Sibmah: 8 The lords of the heathen have broken down the principal plants thereof, 8 They are come even unto Jazer, they wandered through the wilderness: 8 Her branches are [h]stretched out, they are gone over the sea.
9 Therefore I will bewail with the weeping of Jazer the vine of Sibmah: 9 I will water thee with my tears, ch. 15:4O Heshbon, and Elealeh: 9 For [i]the shouting for thy summer fruits and for thy harvest is fallen.
10 And ch. 24:8;Jer. 48:33gladness is taken away, and joy out of the plentiful field; 10 And in the vineyards there shall be no singing, neither shall there be shouting: 10 The treaders shall tread out no wine in their presses; 10 I have made their vintage shouting to cease.
13 This is the word that the Lord hath spoken concerning Moab since that time.
14 But now the Lord hath spoken, saying, 14 Within three years, ch. 21:16as the years of a hireling, 14 And the glory of Moab shall be contemned, with all that great multitude; 14 And the remnant shall be very small and [j]feeble.
