I will send fire on Moab
    that will consume the fortresses of Kerioth.[a](A)
Moab will go down in great tumult
    amid war cries(B) and the blast of the trumpet.(C)

“For three sins of Judah,(G)

because they have been led astray(J) by false gods,[b](K)
    the gods[c] their ancestors followed,(L)
