Isaiah 16 (WEBP)

[1] Send the lambs for the ruler of the land from Selah to the wilderness, to the mountain of the daughter of Zion.
[2] For it will be that as wandering birds, as a scattered nest, so will the daughters of Moab be at the fords of the Arnon.
[3] Give counsel! Execute justice! Make your shade like the night in the middle of the noonday! Hide the outcasts! Don’t betray the fugitive!
[4] Let my outcasts dwell with you! As for Moab, be a hiding place for him from the face of the destroyer. For the extortionist is brought to nothing. Destruction ceases. The oppressors are consumed out of the land.
[5] A throne will be established in loving kindness. One will sit on it in truth, in the tent of David, judging, seeking justice, and swift to do righteousness.
[6] We have heard of the pride of Moab, that he is very proud; even of his arrogance, his pride, and his wrath. His boastings are nothing.
[7] Therefore Moab will wail for Moab. Everyone will wail. You will mourn for the raisin cakes of Kir Hareseth, utterly stricken.
[8] For the fields of Heshbon languish with the vine of Sibmah. The lords of the nations have broken down its choice branches, which reached even to Jazer, which wandered into the wilderness. Its shoots were spread abroad. They passed over the sea.
[9] Therefore I will weep with the weeping of Jazer for the vine of Sibmah. I will water you with my tears, Heshbon, and Elealeh: for on your summer fruits and on your harvest the battle shout has fallen.
[10] Gladness is taken away, and joy out of the fruitful field; and in the vineyards there will be no singing, neither joyful noise. Nobody will tread out wine in the presses. I have made the shouting stop.
[11] Therefore my heart sounds like a harp for Moab, and my inward parts for Kir Heres.
[12] It will happen that when Moab presents himself, when he wearies himself on the high place, and comes to his sanctuary to pray, that he will not prevail.
[13] This is the word that Yahweh spoke concerning Moab in time past.
[14] But now Yahweh has spoken, saying, “Within three years, as a worker bound by contract would count them, the glory of Moab shall be brought into contempt, with all his great multitude; and the remnant will be very small and feeble.”

Isaiah 16 (KJVS)

[1] Send H7971 (8798) ye the lamb H3733 to the ruler H4910 (8802) of the land H776 from Sela H5554 to the wilderness H4057, unto the mount H2022 of the daughter H1323 of Zion H6726.
[2] For it shall be, [that], as a wandering H5074 (8802) bird H5775 cast out H7971 (8794) of the nest H7064, [so] the daughters H1323 of Moab H4124 shall be at the fords H4569 of Arnon H769.
[3] Take H935 (8685) counsel H6098, execute H6213 (8798) judgment H6415; make H7896 (8798) thy shadow H6738 as the night H3915 in the midst H8432 of the noonday H6672; hide H5641 (8761) the outcasts H5080 (8737); bewray H1540 (8762) not him that wandereth H5074 (8802).
[4] Let mine outcasts H5080 (8737) dwell H1481 (8799) with thee, Moab H4124; be H1933 (8798) thou a covert H5643 to them from the face H6440 of the spoiler H7703 (8802): for the extortioner H4160 (8801) is at an end H656 (8804), the spoiler H7701 ceaseth H3615 (8804), the oppressors H7429 (8802) are consumed H8552 (8804) out of the land H776.
[5] And in mercy H2617 shall the throne H3678 be established H3559 (8717): and he shall sit H3427 (8804) upon it in truth H571 in the tabernacle H168 of David H1732, judging H8199 (8802), and seeking H1875 (8802) judgment H4941, and hasting H4106 righteousness H6664.
[6] We have heard H8085 (8804) of the pride H1347 of Moab H4124; [he is] very H3966 proud H1341: [even] of his haughtiness H1346, and his pride H1347, and his wrath H5678: [but] his lies H907 [shall] not [be] so.
[7] Therefore shall Moab H4124 howl H3213 (8686) for Moab H4124, every one shall howl H3213 (8686): for the foundations H808 of Kirhareseth H7025 shall ye mourn H1897 (8799); surely [they are] stricken H5218.
[8] For the fields H7709 of Heshbon H2809 languish H535 (8797), [and] the vine H1612 of Sibmah H7643: the lords H1167 of the heathen H1471 have broken down H1986 (8804) the principal plants H8291 thereof, they are come H5060 (8804) [even] unto Jazer H3270, they wandered H8582 (8804) [through] the wilderness H4057: her branches H7976 are stretched out H5203 (8738), they are gone over H5674 (8804) the sea H3220.
[9] Therefore I will bewail H1058 (8799) with the weeping H1065 of Jazer H3270 the vine H1612 of Sibmah H7643: I will water H7301 (8762) thee with my tears H1832, O Heshbon H2809, and Elealeh H500: for the shouting H1959 for thy summer fruits H7019 and for thy harvest H7105 is fallen H5307 (8804).
[10] And gladness H8057 is taken away H622 (8738), and joy H1524 out of the plentiful field H3759; and in the vineyards H3754 there shall be no singing H7442 (8792), neither shall there be shouting H7321 (8783): the treaders H1869 (8802) shall tread out H1869 (8799) no wine H3196 in [their] presses H3342; I have made [their vintage] shouting H1959 to cease H7673 (8689).
[11] Wherefore my bowels H4578 shall sound H1993 (8799) like an harp H3658 for Moab H4124, and mine inward parts H7130 for Kirharesh H7025.
[12] And it shall come to pass, when it is seen H7200 (8738) that Moab H4124 is weary H3811 (8738) on the high place H1116, that he shall come H935 (8804) to his sanctuary H4720 to pray H6419 (8692); but he shall not prevail H3201 (8799).
[13] This [is] the word H1697 that the LORD H3068 hath spoken H1696 (8765) concerning Moab H4124 since that time H227.
[14] But now the LORD H3068 hath spoken H1696 (8765), saying H559 (8800), Within three H7969 years H8141, as the years H8141 of an hireling H7916, and the glory H3519 of Moab H4124 shall be contemned H7034 (8738), with all that great H7227 multitude H1995; and the remnant H7605 [shall be] very H4592 small H4213 [and] feeble H3808 H3524.
