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 his neighbours.

40 For thus says the Lord:
Look, he shall swoop down like an eagle,
    and spread his wings against Moab;
41 the towns[a] shall be taken
    and the strongholds seized.
The hearts of the warriors of Moab, on that day,
    shall be like the heart of a woman in labour.
