Isaías 15

Profecía contra Moab

1Profecía contra Moab:

La ciudad moabita de Ar está arruinada,
    ¡destruida en una noche!
La ciudad moabita de Quir está arruinada,
    ¡destruida en una noche!
Acuden los de Dibón al templo,
    a sus *altares paganos, para llorar.
Moab está gimiendo
    por Nebo y por Medeba.
Rapadas están todas las cabezas,
    y afeitadas todas las barbas.
Todos, deshechos en llanto,
    van por las calles, vestidos de luto;
    ¡gimen en los techos y en las plazas!
Hesbón y Elalé claman a gritos,
    hasta Yahaza se escuchan sus clamores.
Por eso gritan los valientes de Moab,
    y flaquea su entereza.
Mi *corazón grita por Moab;
    sus fugitivos huyen hasta Zoar,
    hasta Eglat Selisiyá.
Suben llorando por la cuesta de Luhit;
    ante el desastre, gritan desesperados
    por el camino de Joronayin.
Se han secado las aguas de Nimrín;
    se ha marchitado la hierba.
Ya no hay vegetación,
    no ha quedado nada verde.
Por eso se llevaron,
    más allá del arroyo de los Sauces,
    las muchas riquezas que amasaron.
Su grito desesperado
    va recorriendo la frontera de Moab.
Llega su gemido hasta Eglayin,
    y aun llega hasta Ber Elín.
Llenas están de sangre las aguas de Dimón,
    y aún más plagas le añadiré:
enviaré un león contra los moabitas fugitivos
    y contra los que permanezcan en la tierra.

Isaiah 15

Judgment on Moab

1The [a]oracle concerning Moab.

Surely in a night Ar of Moab is devastated and ruined;
Surely in a night Kir of Moab is devastated and ruined.
They have gone up to the [b]temple and to Dibon, even to the high places to weep.
Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba;
Everyone’s head is bald and every beard is cut off.
In their streets they have girded themselves with sackcloth;
On their housetops and in their squares
Everyone is wailing, [c]dissolved in tears.
Heshbon and Elealeh also cry out,
Their voice is heard all the way to Jahaz;
Therefore the [d]armed men of Moab cry aloud;
His soul trembles within him.
My heart cries out for Moab;
His fugitives are as far as Zoar and Eglath-shelishiyah,
For they go up the ascent of Luhith weeping;
Surely on the road to Horonaim they raise a cry of distress over their ruin.
For the waters of Nimrim are [e]desolate.
Surely the grass is withered, the tender grass [f]died out,
There is no green thing.
Therefore the abundance which they have acquired and stored up
They carry off over the brook of [g]Arabim.
For the cry of distress has gone around the territory of Moab,
Its wail goes as far as Eglaim and its wailing even to Beer-elim.
For the waters of Dimon are full of [h]blood;
Surely I will bring added woes upon Dimon,
A lion upon the fugitives of Moab and upon the remnant of the land.
