“As for you, [a](A)tower of the flock,
[b]Hill of the daughter of Zion,
To you it will come—
Even the (B)former dominion will come,
The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.

“Now, why do you (C)cry out loudly?
Is there no king among you,
Or has your (D)counselor perished,
That agony has gripped you like a woman in childbirth?
10 (E)Writhe and labor to give birth,
Daughter of Zion,
Like a woman in childbirth;
For now you will (F)go out of the city,
Dwell in the field,
And go to Babylon.
(G)There you will be rescued;
(H)There the Lord will redeem you
From the hand of your enemies.
