C. Upon Moab 48:1-47
Jer. 48 :1 48:1 Concerning 1aMoab:

Woe to Nebo, for it is destroyed;
Kiriathaim is put to shame; it is captured;
The lofty retreat is put to shame and dismayed.
Jer. 48 :2 48:2 The praise of Moab is no more;
In Heshbon they have devised evil against her, saying:
Come and let us cut her off from being a nation.

A sword will go after you.

And be like a shrub in the wilderness.

Jer. 48 :11 48:11 Moab has been at ease from his youth;
And he is asettled on his lees
And has not been emptied from vessel to vessel;
Nor has he gone into exile.
Therefore his taste remains in him,
And his scent is not changed.

I will weep for you, O vine of Sibmah.

They have reached as far as the sea, to Jazer;
On your summer fruit and on your vintage
The destroyer has fallen.
Jer. 48 :33 48:33 Rejoicing and exultation are taken away

The harvest shout will be no harvest shout.

The year of their punishment, declares Jehovah.

And the top of the head of the sons of tumult.

In the last days, declares Jehovah.
