Therefore, as I live,”
Says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,
“Surely (A)Moab shall be like Sodom,
And (B)the people of Ammon like Gomorrah—
(C)Overrun[a] with weeds and saltpits,
And a [b]perpetual desolation.
The residue of My people shall plunder them,
And the remnant of My people shall possess them.”
