“I, the Lord, say:
We have heard about Moab’s pride, their great arrogance, their boasting, pride, and excess.
Arrogance is their necklace,
A mongrel people will live in Ashdod, for I will greatly humiliate the Philistines.
I have heard how proud the people of Moab are, I know how haughty they are. I have heard how arrogant, proud, and haughty they are, what a high opinion they have of themselves.
The fear of the Lord is to hate
A person’s pride
to turn a person from his sin,
All the people were aware
In your days of majesty,
This is how they will be repaid for their arrogance,
Babylon, the most admired
The Lord confirms this oath
The splendid crown of Ephraim’s drunkards will be trampled underfoot.
But then Hezekiah and the residents of Jerusalem humbled themselves and abandoned their pride, and the Lord was not angry with them for the rest of Hezekiah’s reign.
