For fire went out from Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon. It has consumed Ar of Moab and the lords 1 of the high places of Arnon.
In the shadows of the walls of Heshbon those trying to escape will stand helpless. For a fire will burst forth from Heshbon. Flames will shoot out from the former territory of Sihon. They will burn the foreheads of the people of Moab, the skulls of those war-loving people. 1
