Therefore I will weep bitterly for Jazer,
    for the vine of Sibmah.
I will drench you with my tears,
    O Heshbon and Elealeh.
For on your summer and your harvest
    the battle cry has fallen.
10 Gladness and joy are taken away from the fruitful field.
In the vineyards, no singing for joy no happy shouting,
    no treading wine in the presses.
I have made the shouting stop.
11 Therefore my heart moans for Moab
    like a lyre,
and my inward part for Kir-heres.

So I weep,(A) as Jazer weeps,
    for the vines of Sibmah.
Heshbon and Elealeh,(B)
    I drench you with tears!(C)
The shouts of joy(D) over your ripened fruit
    and over your harvests(E) have been stilled.
10 Joy and gladness are taken away from the orchards;(F)
    no one sings or shouts(G) in the vineyards;
no one treads(H) out wine at the presses,(I)
    for I have put an end to the shouting.
11 My heart laments for Moab(J) like a harp,(K)
    my inmost being(L) for Kir Hareseth.
