Revised Standard Version
39 How it is broken! How they wail! How Moab has turned his back in shame! So Moab has become a derision and a horror to all that are round about him.”
40 For thus says the Lord:
“Behold, one shall fly swiftly like an eagle,
and spread his wings against Moab;
41 the cities shall be taken
and the strongholds seized.
The heart of the warriors of Moab shall be in that day
like the heart of a woman in her pangs;
New International Version
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)
