Isaiah 15 - NIV

A Prophecy Against Moab

1 A prophecy against Moab:

Ar in Moab is ruined,
destroyed in a night!
Kir in Moab is ruined,
destroyed in a night!

2 Dibon goes up to its temple,
to its high places to weep;
Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba.
Every head is shaved
and every beard cut off.

3 In the streets they wear sackcloth;
on the roofs and in the public squares
they all wail,
prostrate with weeping.

4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out,
their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz.
Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out,
and their hearts are faint.

5

My heart cries out over Moab;
her fugitives flee as far as Zoar,
as far as Eglath Shelishiyah.
They go up the hill to Luhith,
weeping as they go;
on the road to Horonaim
they lament their destruction.

6 The waters of Nimrim are dried up
and the grass is withered;
the vegetation is gone
and nothing green is left.

7 So the wealth they have acquired and stored up
they carry away over the Ravine of the Poplars.

8 Their outcry echoes along the border of Moab;
their wailing reaches as far as Eglaim,
their lamentation as far as Beer Elim.

9 The waters of Dimon[a] are full of blood,
but I will bring still more upon Dimon[b]
a lion upon the fugitives of Moab
and upon those who remain in the land.

You Are Anointed
Shared by: Rev. M Edmunds on Feb, 2013
Summary: Whenever you attempt to bring about change because of the anointing placed upon your life, it plays on the insecurities of those who have grown accustomed to the way things are and have always been. In this way, your destiny or vision for change is often
