39 ‘How shattered she is! How they wail!
    How Moab turns her back in shame!
Moab has become an object of ridicule,
    an object of horror to all those around her.’

40 This is what the Lord says:

‘Look! An eagle is swooping down,
    spreading its wings over Moab.
41 Kerioth[a] will be captured
    and the strongholds taken.
In that day the hearts of Moab’s warriors
    will be like the heart of a woman in labour.
