21 A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.22 Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again andyour heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.
