New King James Version
4 Now these are the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah.
5 “For thus says the Lord:
‘We have heard a voice of trembling,
Of [a]fear, and not of peace.
6 Ask now, and see,
Whether a [b]man is ever in [c]labor with child?
So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins
(A)Like a woman in labor,
And all faces turned pale?
7 (B)Alas! For that day is great,
(C)So that none is like it;
And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble,
But he shall be saved out of it.
