Isaiah 15:1-2

Context
The Lord Will Judge Moab

15:1 Here is a message about Moab:

Indeed, in a night it is devastated,

Ar of Moab is destroyed!

Indeed, in a night it is devastated,

Kir of Moab is destroyed!

15:2 They went up to the temple, 1 

the people of Dibon went up to the high places to lament. 2 

Because of what happened to Nebo and Medeba, 3  Moab wails.

Every head is shaved bare,

every beard is trimmed off. 4 

1 tn Heb “house.”

2 tn Heb “even Dibon [to] the high places to weep.” The verb “went up” does double duty in the parallel structure.

3 tn Heb “over [or “for”] Nebo and over [or “for”] Medeba.”

4 sn Shaving the head and beard were outward signs of mourning and grief.
