For the cry has gone around
the borders of Moab,
the wailing to Eglaim,
and the wailing to Beer-elim.
For the waters of Dimon are full of blood,
but I will bring on Dimon even more—
a lion for those escaping from Moab,
and for those remaining in the land.

Their outcry echoes along the border of Moab;
    their wailing reaches as far as Eglaim,
    their lamentation as far as Beer(A) Elim.
The waters of Dimon[a] are full of blood,
    but I will bring still more upon Dimon[b]
a lion(B) upon the fugitives of Moab(C)
    and upon those who remain in the land.
