- I am Mesha, son of KMSYT (Kemosh[-yat]), the king of Moab, the Di-
- -bonite. My father was king of Moab thirty years, and I reign-
- -ed after my father. And I built this high-place for Kemosh in QRH (“the citadel”), a high place of [sal-]
- -vation because he saved me from all the kings (or “all the attackers”), and because let me be victorious over all my adversaries. Omr-
- -i was king of Israel and he oppressed Moab for many days because Kemosh was angry with his
- land. And his son replaced him; and he also said, “I will oppress Moab”. In my days he spoke thus.
- But I was victorious over him and his house. And Israel suffered everlasting destruction, And Omri had conquered the lan-
- -d of Madaba, and he dwelt there during his reign and half the reign of his son, forty years. But Kemosh
- returned it in my days. So I [re]built Baal Meon, and I the water reservoir in it. And I bu[ilt]
- . ETh QiRiY. The man of Gad had dwelt in Ataroth from of old; and the king of Israel
- . built Ataroth for him. But I fought against the city and took it. And I slew all the people [and]
- . the city became the property of Kemosh and Moab. And I carried from there the altar for its DVDH (“its Davidic altar”?) and I
- . dragged it before Kemosh in Qerioit, and I settled in it men of Sharon m[en]
- . of Maharit. And Kemosh said to me, “Go! Seize Nebo against Israel.” so I
- . proceeded by night and fought with it from the crack of dawn to midday, and I to-
- . -ok it and I slew all of them: seven thousand men and boys, and women and gi-
- . and maidens because I had dedicated it to Ashtar Kemosh I took [the ves-]
- . -sels of YHWH, and I dragged them before Kemosh. And the king of Israel had built
- . Yahaz, and he dwelt in it while he was fighting with me, but Kemosh drove him out before me. so
- . I took from Moab two hundred men, all his captains. And I brought them to Yahaz, And I seized it
- . in order to add (it) to Dibon. I (myself) have built the ‘citadel’, ‘the wall(s) of the forest’ and the wall
- . of the ‘acropolis’. And I built its gates; And I built its towers. And
- . I built a royal palace; and I made the ramparts for the reservo[ir for] water in the mid-
- . -st of the city. But there was no cistern in the midst of the city, in the ‘citadel,’ so I said to all the people, “Make [for]
- . yourselves each man a cistern in his house”. And I hewed the shaft for the ‘citadel’ with prisoner-
- . -s of Israel. I built Aroer, and I made the highway in the Arnon.
- . I built Beth-Bamot, because it was in ruins. I built Bezer, because it was
- . a ruin [with] the armed men of Dibon because all of Dibon was under orders and I ru-
- . -led [ove]r [the] hundreds in the towns which I have annexed to the land. And I bui-
- . -lt Medeba and Beth-Diblaten and Beth-Baal-Meon, and I carried there [my herdsmen]
- . [to herd] the small cattle of the land, and Horonain, in it dwelt house of DV[D]…
- . [and] Kemosh [s]aid to me, “Go down, fight against Horonain”. And I went down [and I fou-
