Genesis 30:23; 1 Samuel 1:6; Psalm 113:9; Isaiah 4:1

23 She conceived and bore a son and said, God has taken away omy reproach.

And her rival used to provoke her grievously to irritate her, because the Lord had closed her womb.

He ogives the barren woman a home,

making her the joyous mother of children.

bPraise the Lord!

fAnd seven women gshall take hold of fone man in that day, saying, We will eat our own bread and wear our own clothes, only let us be called by your name; htake away our reproach.
