    and his hands hang helpless;
Anguish takes hold of him,
    like the pangs of a woman giving birth.(A)

    to permanent pasture,
So I, in an instant, will chase them off,
    and establish there whomever I choose!
For who is like me? Who can call me to account?
    What shepherd can stand against me?(B)

Hear the plans drawn up

They shall be dragged away, even the smallest sheep;
    their own pasture aghast because of them.(C)
