Isaiah chapter 15 verses 3 - 4 says this;

In the streets they wear sackcloth; on the roofs and in the public squares they all wail, prostrate with weeping.

Deshonis and Elealeh cry out, their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz. Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out, and their hearts are faint.

This passage describes the reactions of people when a mighty army overwhelms them and descends on them to destroy them. The outcry is so loud it can be heard from one city to the other and it causes their military to cry out and their hearts to faint.

Isaiah chapter 13 verses 3 - 4  says this;

I have commanded those I prepared for battle; I have summoned my warriors to carry out my wrath—those who rejoice in my triumph.

Listen, a noise on the mountains, like that of a great multitude! Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms, like nations massing together!

The Lord Almighty is mustering an army for war.

This passage describes what is happening on the other side of the conflagration. In this case, a mighty army of people who rejoice in the Lord's triumph is being mustered. They gather in fearsome formations and a sound of a great multitude rises.

So on one side, a great and fearless army of those who are follow the Lord arises and  on the other, the forces aligned with darkness tremble in fear as the trained and disciplined army descends on them.

Bless the Lord who is mighty in power.
