What Happens to the Pride-Filled

Isaiah revealed the pride of Moab that all the nation’s boasting did not truly make it what it thought it was. He then said what would happen to Moab,
Therefore Moab shall wail for Moab;
Everyone shall wail.
For the foundations of Kir Hareseth you shall mourn;
Surely they are stricken.
(Isaiah 16:7)
Instead of Moab boasting of itself, Moab would wail for itself, and not just a citizen here and there, but all the citizens of Moab. From its very foundations, they would all mourn, because the Lord would strike the nation until it was gone.
Moab no longer exists as nation. What good did their boasting do?
What good does boasting ever do? Let no nation or person boast in itself, but boast only in the Lord, for His righteous is going nowhere.
