New Defender's Study Bible Notes
25:11 judgments upon Moab. See also Jeremiah 48, Amos 2:1-3, and Zephaniah 2:8-10. Like Ammon, Moab was descended from Lot, was a very prosperous country for two thousand years or more, and was always at enmity with Israel. Like Ammon, God eventually judged her for this, and her land was taken over by Bedouins and became quite desolate for centuries. Also like Ammon, however, God promised an eventual restoration of Moab in the latter days (Jeremiah 48:47), even though (like Ammon) she would have been “destroyed from being a people” (Jeremiah 48:42). This means, evidently, that Moab would never again be a distinct people, for her descendants, like those of Ammon, have been amalgamated with the Jordanian Arabs.
