I agree that most languages are bad for this. I think Java is also too verbose to be a good config language. My experience has been with a Python dsl but I'm open to other options too.

I actually see it less as a configs language issue and more that you want a program that encapsulates the patterns and logic for your app to run. So the language itself is a bit less of an issue other than it needs to support the model you’re creating.
