And you, O tower of the flock,
The stronghold of the daughter of Zion,
To you shall it come,
Even the former dominion shall come,
The kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.”

Now why do you cry aloud?
(A)Is there no king in your midst?
Has your counselor perished?
For (B)pangs have seized you like a woman in [a]labor.
10 Be in pain, and labor to bring forth,
O daughter of Zion,
Like a woman in birth pangs.
For now you shall go forth from the city,
You shall dwell in the field,
And to (C)Babylon you shall go.
There you shall be delivered;
There the (D)Lord will (E)redeem you
From the hand of your enemies.
