2 “This is what Jehovah says,
Because he burned the bones of the king of Eʹdom for lime.
2 So I will send a fire into Moʹab,
And it will consume the fortified towers of Keʹri·oth;+
Moʹab will die amid an uproar,
With a war cry, with the sound of a horn.+
4 This is what Jehovah says,
‘For three revolts of Judah,+ and for four, I will not reverse it,
Because they rejected the law* of Jehovah,
And because they did not keep his regulations;+
But the same lies their forefathers followed have led them astray.+
6 This is what Jehovah says,
‘For three revolts of Israel,+ and for four, I will not reverse it,
Because they sell the righteous for silver,
And the poor for a pair of sandals.+
And they block the path of the meek.+
A man and his father have relations with the same girl,
Profaning my holy name.
And the wine they drink at the house* of their gods was obtained from those they fined.’
Who was as tall as the cedars and as strong as the oaks;
I destroyed his fruit above and his roots below.+
And I made you walk through the wilderness 40 years,+
To take possession of the land of the Amʹor·ite.
Is this not so, O people of Israel?’ declares Jehovah.
And you commanded the prophets: “You must not prophesy.”+
13 So I will crush you in your place,
Just as a wagon loaded with cut grain crushes what is under it.
The strong one will not retain his power,
And no warrior will escape with his life.*
15 The bowman will not stand his ground,
The swift of foot will not escape,
And the horseman will not escape with his life.*
