17 xLike a pregnant woman
who writhes and cries out in her pangs
when she is near to giving birth,
so were we because of you, O Lord;
6 sTrembling took hold of them there,
anguish tas of a woman in labor.
8 They will be dismayed:
ppangs and agony will seize them;
qthey will be in anguish like a woman in labor.
They will look aghast at one another;
their faces will be aflame.
2 She was pregnant and gwas crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.
