For because you have trusted in your works and in your treasures,
you also will be taken captive,
and Chemosh will go out into captivity;
and his priests and his officials together. Bible

“and Chemosh will go out into captivity.” It was a common custom for a conquering nation to take back home with them the gods of the defeated nation (cp. Isa. 46:1-2; Jer. 48:7; 49:3; Hos. 10:5; Dan. 11:8; see commentary on Hos. 10:5).
