New International Version
17 This is what the Lord Almighty says:
“Consider now! Call for the wailing women(A) to come;
send for the most skillful of them.
18 Let them come quickly
and wail over us
till our eyes overflow with tears
and water streams from our eyelids.(B)
19 The sound of wailing is heard from Zion:
‘How ruined(C) we are!
How great is our shame!
We must leave our land
because our houses are in ruins.’”
