39 Moab lies broken!
Listen to its people cry
    as they turn away in shame.
Other nations are horrified
at what happened,
    but still they laugh.

40 Moab, an enemy swoops down
like an eagle spreading its wings
    over your land.
41 Your cities[a] and fortresses
    will be captured,
and your warriors
    gripped by fear.[b]
