Isaiah chapter 15 verse 4 says this;

Heshbon and Elealeh also cry out, Their voice is heard all the way to Jahaz; Therefore the armed men of Moab cry aloud; His soul trembles within him.

This verse records a detail of the judgement that befell Moab. 

The towns of Heshbon and Elealeh, when  struck by attackers, responded with cries that could be heard all the way to an area called Jahaz.

In response to the terrifying shouts coming from the towns, the soldiers of Moab themselves cried out in fear and their souls trembled.

All their training and defence plans were rendered obsolete in the face of the scale of destruction that came upon their country.

The strength of the once proud and arrogant Moab faded away and was brought to nothing. As Isaiah chapter 16 verse 14 says;

But now the LORD speaks, saying, "Within three years, as a hired man would count them, the glory of Moab will be degraded along with all his great population, and his remnant will be very small and impotent."

Such will be the fate of the proud nations upon whom the judgement of the Lord falls.

Let us humble ourselves before the Lord and pray so that the Lord may hear from heaven and forgive our sin and heal our broken land.
