God ordered the Israelites to destroy the heathens and their place of worship as they journeyed into the Promised land. However, the Moabites were one of the nations God told the children of Israel not to invade during their journey from Egypt to the promised land. (Deut. 2:4, 9).The Israelites therefore turned from them and did not destroy them.

The 'high places" in this reading refers to the places of worship of pagan gods used by the Moabites.
