New American Bible (Revised Edition)
16 I have put my words into your mouth,
I covered you, shielded by my hand,
Stretching out the heavens,
laying the foundations of the earth,
saying to Zion: You are my people.
The Cup of the Lord
17 Wake up, wake up!
You who drank at the Lord’s hand
the cup of his wrath;
Who drained to the dregs
the bowl of staggering!(A)

of all the children she bore;
She has no one to take her by the hand,
of all the children she reared!—
