Jeremiah 48:28; Jeremiah 49:16; Obadiah 3

28  rLeave the cities, and dwell in the rock,

O inhabitants of Moab!

Be slike the dove that nests

in the sides of the mouth of a gorge.


16  The horror you inspire has deceived you,

and the pride of your heart,

you who live in the clefts of the rock,1

who hold the height of the hill.

Though you gmake your nest as high as the eagle's,

I will bring you down from there,

declares the Lord.


cThe pride of your heart has deceived you,

you who live in the clefts of the rock,1

in your lofty dwelling,

dwho say in your heart,

Who will bring me down to the ground?
