Jeremiah 48:7

Context

48:7 “Moab, you trust in the things you do and in your riches.

So you too will be conquered.

Your god Chemosh 1  will go into exile 2 

along with his priests and his officials.

Jeremiah 48:46

Context

48:46 Moab, you are doomed! 3 

You people who worship Chemosh will be destroyed.

Your sons will be taken away captive.

Your daughters will be carried away into exile. 4 

1 sn Chemosh was the national god of Moab (see also Numb 21:29). Child sacrifice appears to have been a part of his worship (2 Kgs 3:27). Solomon built a high place in Jerusalem for him (1 Kgs 11:7), and he appears to have been worshiped in Israel until Josiah tore that high place down (2 Kgs 23:13).

2 sn The practice of carrying off the gods of captive nations has already been mentioned in the study note on 43:12. See also Isa 46:1-2 noted there.

3 tn Heb “Woe to you, Moab.” For the usage of this expression see 4:13, 31; 13:17 and the translator’s note on 4:13 and 10:19.

4 tn Heb “Your sons will be taken away into captivity, your daughters into exile.”
