Isaiah 15:2

Context

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 

Isaiah 15:9

Context

15:9 Indeed, the waters of Dimon 5  are full of blood!

Indeed, I will heap even more trouble on Dimon. 6 

A lion will attack 7  the Moabite fugitives

and the people left in the land.

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.

5 tc The Qumran scroll 1QIsaa reads “Dibon” instead of “Dimon” in this verse.

6 tn Heb “Indeed I will place on Dimon added things.” Apparently the Lord is speaking.

7 tn The words “will attack” are supplied in the translation for clarification.
