The burden of Dumah.
One calls to me out of Seir,
“Watchman, what of the night?
Watchman, what of the night?” Bible

“burden.” The word of the Lord can be a burden to the prophet, and then, when it is spoken, can be a burden to the people. It might have been more clear in the English to say “burdensome message” instead of “burden,” but the Hebrew word is “burden.” [For more information on “burden,” see commentary on Malachi 1:1].
