There shall be no more praise of Moab: in Heshbon they have devised evil against it; come, and let us cut it off from being a nation. Also thou shalt be cut down, O Madmen; the sword shall pursue thee.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

48:2 in Heshbon. Heshbon is one of over twenty Moabite cities and villages singled out in this chapter for destruction. Most have long vanished, so completely that not even their ancient locations are known. Jeremiah’s prophecies have indeed been fulfilled. Heshbon had been an Amorite capital, later taken over by the Moabites, then by Israel, and later recaptured by the Moabites and eventually by the Ammonites. Its remains have been excavated archaeologically in modern times.
