39 “How [a]shattered it is! How they have wailed! How Moab has turned his back—he is ashamed! So Moab will become a laughingstock and an (A)object of terror to all around him.”

40 For thus says the Lord:

“Behold, one will (B)fly swiftly like an eagle
And (C)spread out his wings against Moab.
41 “Kerioth has been captured
And the strongholds have been seized,
So the (D)hearts of the mighty men of Moab in that day
Will be like the heart of a (E)woman in labor.

39 “How shattered(A) she is! How they wail!
    How Moab turns her back in shame!
Moab has become an object of ridicule,(B)
    an object of horror to all those around her.”

40 This is what the Lord says:

“Look! An eagle is swooping(C) down,
    spreading its wings(D) over Moab.
41 Kerioth[a](E) will be captured
    and the strongholds taken.
In that day the hearts of Moab’s warriors(F)
    will be like the heart of a woman in labor.(G)
