Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Shebam, and Nebo, and Beon,
And the children of Reuben built Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Kirjathaim,
And Heshbon shall cry, and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard even
unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous unto him.
Therefore I will bewail with the weeping of Jazer the vine of Sibmah: I will water thee with my tears, O Heshbon, and Elealeh: for the shouting for thy summer fruits and for thy harvest is fallen.
From the cry of Heshbon even
unto Elealeh, and even
unto Jahaz, have they uttered their voice, from Zoar even
unto Horonaim, as
an heifer of three years old: for the waters also of Nimrim shall be desolate.
