38 People are crying on every roof[a] in Moab
    and in every public square.
There is nothing but sadness
    because I have broken Moab
    like a jar no one wants,” says the Lord.
39 “Moab is shattered! The people are crying!
    Moab turns away in shame!
People all around her make fun of her.
    The things that happened fill them with fear.”

40 This is what the Lord says:
    “Look! An eagle is diving down from the sky.
    It spreads its wings over Moab.
