that he is very proud;
even heard of his arrogance, his pride, and his wrath.
His boastings are nothing.
Everyone will wail.
You will mourn for the raisin cakes of Kir Hareseth,
with the vine of Sibmah.
The lords of the nations
have broken down its choice branches
that reached even to Jazer,
which wandered into the wilderness.
Its shoots were spread abroad.
They passed over the sea.
for the vine of Sibmah.
I will water you with my tears, Heshbon and Elealeh,
for on your summer fruit
and on your harvest
the battle shout has fallen.
and in the vineyards there will be no singing or joyful noise.
Nobody will tread out wine in the presses.
I have made the joyful shouting stop.
when he wearies himself on the high place
and comes to his sanctuary to pray,
that he will not prevail.
