15:8 Indeed, the cries of distress echo throughout Moabite territory;
their wailing can be heard in Eglaim and Beer Elim. 1
Indeed, I will heap even more trouble on Dimon. 3
A lion will attack 4 the Moabite fugitives
and the people left in the land.
1 tn Heb “to Eglaim [is] her wailing, and [to] Beer Elim [is] her wailing.”
2 tc The Qumran scroll 1QIsaa reads “Dibon” instead of “Dimon” in this verse.
3 tn Heb “Indeed I will place on Dimon added things.” Apparently the Lord is speaking.
4 tn The words “will attack” are supplied in the translation for clarification.
