New King James Version
8 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.”
9 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.
- Micah 4:9 childbirth
