Whether a man can give birth.

With his hands on his loins like a awoman

And there is none like it;
And it is a time of 1distress
But he will be saved out of it.

With the chastisement of one who is cruel,
Because of the greatness of your iniquity;
Your sins are numerous.

Your pain is incurable.
Because of the greatness of your iniquity, Because
your sins are numerous,
I have done these things to you.

And all those who distress you, every one of them, will go into captivity;
And those who plunder you will become plunder,
And all those who prey on you I will make a prey.

And will heal you of your wounds, declares Jehovah;
Because they have called you an outcast, saying
She is Zion, whom no one searches after.

And the palace will be inhabited after its own manner.

And the voice of those who make merry.

And I will punish all those who oppress 2them

To approach Me? declares Jehovah.

A whirling tempest;
It will whirl down on the head of the wicked.

Until He has executed and until He has accomplished
The purposes of His heart;
In the last days You will understand it.
