And you, watchtower for the flock,(A)
fortified hill[a] of Daughter Zion,
the former rule(B) will come to you,
sovereignty will come to Daughter Jerusalem.

From Exile to Victory

Now, why are you shouting loudly?(C)
Is there no king with you?
Has your counselor perished(D)
so that anguish grips you like a woman in labor?
10 Writhe and cry out,[b](E) Daughter Zion,
like a woman in labor,
for now you will leave the city(F)
and camp in the open fields.
You will go to Babylon;
there you will be rescued;(G)
there the Lord will redeem you(H)
from the power of your enemies!
