So I join with Jazer
to weep for the vines of Sibmah;
I drench Heshbon and Elealeh with my tears.
Triumphant shouts have fallen silent[a]
over your summer fruit and your harvest.
10 Joy and rejoicing(A) have been removed from the orchard;
no one is singing or shouting for joy in the vineyards.(B)
No one tramples grapes[b] in the winepresses.
I have put an end to the shouting.

11 Therefore I moan like the sound of a lyre for Moab,(C)
as does my innermost being for Kir-heres.
