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.
