Isaiah 15:1-9
1. An oracle concerning Moab. Because Ar is laid waste in a night, Moab is undone; because Kir is laid waste in a night, Moab is undone.
2. Dibon has gone up to the temple, to the high places to weep; over Nebo and over Medeba Moab wails. On every head is baldness, every beard is shorn;
3. in the streets they bind on sackcloth; on the housetops and in the squares everyone wails and melts in tears.
4. Heshbon and Elealeh cry out, their voices are heard as far as Jahaz; therefore the loins of Moab quiver; his soul trembles.
5. My heart cries out for Moab; his fugitives flee to Zoar, to Eglath-shelishiyah. For at the ascent of Luhith they go up weeping; on the road to Horonaim they raise a cry of destruction;
6. the waters of Nimrim are a desolation; the grass is withered, the new growth fails, the verdure is no more.
7. Therefore the abundance they have gained and what they have laid up they carry away over the Wadi of the Willows.
8. For a cry has gone around the land of Moab; the wailing reaches to Eglaim, the wailing reaches to Beer-elim.
9. For the waters of Dibon are full of blood; yet I will bring upon Dibon even more-- a lion for those of Moab who escape, for the remnant of the land.

Isaiah 16:1-14
1. Send lambs to the ruler of the land, from Sela, by way of the desert, to the mount of daughter Zion.
2. Like fluttering birds, like scattered nestlings, so are the daughters of Moab at the fords of the Arnon.
3. "Give counsel, grant justice; make your shade like night at the height of noon; hide the outcasts, do not betray the fugitive;
4. let the outcasts of Moab settle among you; be a refuge to them from the destroyer." When the oppressor is no more, and destruction has ceased, and marauders have vanished from the land,
5. then a throne shall be established in steadfast love in the tent of David, and on it shall sit in faithfulness a ruler who seeks justice and is swift to do what is right.
6. We have heard of the pride of Moab-- how proud he is!-- of his arrogance, his pride, and his insolence; his boasts are false.
7. Therefore let Moab wail, let everyone wail for Moab. Mourn, utterly stricken, for the raisin cakes of Kir-hareseth.
8. For the fields of Heshbon languish, and the vines of Sibmah, whose clusters once made drunk the lords of the nations, reached to Jazer and strayed to the desert; their shoots once spread abroad and crossed over the sea.
9. Therefore I weep with the weeping of Jazer for the vines of Sibmah; I drench you with my tears, O Heshbon and Elealeh; for the shout over your fruit harvest and your grain harvest has ceased.
10. Joy and gladness are taken away from the fruitful field; and in the vineyards no songs are sung, no shouts are raised; no treader treads out wine in the presses; the vintage-shout is hushed.
11. Therefore my heart throbs like a harp for Moab, and my very soul for Kir-heres.
12. When Moab presents himself, when he wearies himself upon the high place, when he comes to his sanctuary to pray, he will not prevail.
13. This was the word that the LORD spoke concerning Moab in the past.
14. But now the LORD says, In three years, like the years of a hired worker, the glory of Moab will be brought into contempt, in spite of all its great multitude; and those who survive will be very few and feeble.

Psalms 106:24-31
24. Then they despised the pleasant land, having no faith in his promise.
25. They grumbled in their tents, and did not obey the voice of the LORD.
26. Therefore he raised his hand and swore to them that he would make them fall in the wilderness,
27. and would disperse their descendants among the nations, scattering them over the lands.
28. Then they attached themselves to the Baal of Peor, and ate sacrifices offered to the dead;
29. they provoked the LORD to anger with their deeds, and a plague broke out among them.
30. Then Phinehas stood up and interceded, and the plague was stopped.
31. And that has been reckoned to him as righteousness from generation to generation forever.

Proverbs 25:8-10
8. do not hastily bring into court; for what will you do in the end, when your neighbor puts you to shame?
9. Argue your case with your neighbor directly, and do not disclose another's secret;
10. or else someone who hears you will bring shame upon you, and your ill repute will have no end.

2 Corinthians 4:1-18
1. Therefore, since it is by God's mercy that we are engaged in this ministry, we do not lose heart.
2. We have renounced the shameful things that one hides; we refuse to practice cunning or to falsify God's word; but by the open statement of the truth we commend ourselves to the conscience of everyone in the sight of God.
3. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.
4. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
5. For we do not proclaim ourselves; we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and ourselves as your slaves for Jesus' sake.
6. For it is the God who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7. But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us.
8. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;
9. persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;
10. always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our bodies.
11. For while we live, we are always being given up to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus may be made visible in our mortal flesh.
12. So death is at work in us, but life in you.
13. But just as we have the same spirit of faith that is in accordance with scripture-- "I believed, and so I spoke"-- we also believe, and so we speak,
14. because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus, and will bring us with you into his presence.
15. Yes, everything is for your sake, so that grace, as it extends to more and more people, may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.
16. So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day.
17. For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure,
18. because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.
