The book of Isaiah chapter 15 verses 9 - 10 verse 9 and chapter 16 verse 1 says this;

(15-9) The waters of Dimon are full of blood, but I will bring still more upon Dimon—a lion upon the fugitives of Moab and upon those who remain in the land.

(16-1) Send lambs as tribute to the ruler of the land, from Sela, across the desert, to the mount of Daughter Zion.

This passage describes the harsh judgement that will fall upon the people Moab where even though the waters are full blood, more judgement is brought upon them. A devouring lion is released upon them who are escaping as refugees from Moab and upon the those who opted to remain in the their land.

As the great destruction falls upon them, they are advised to send a tribute offering of lambs to ruler of land to the country of Zion.

In this time of desperation, their prayers to their own gods on the high places avail nothing and their only hope is in the intervention by the king of Zion.

They ask the neighboring nation of Zion to give shelter to the refugees from Moab and to conceal them from the destroyer. Nevertheless, their judgement leaves them devastated and feeble.

As Isaiah chapter 16 verse 14 says;

But now the Lord says: “Within three years, as a servant bound by contract would count them, Moab’s splendor and all her many people will be despised, and her survivors will be very few and feeble.”
