7 n“Before she was in labor
she gave birth;
before her pain came upon her
she delivered a son.
Who has seen such things?
Shall a land be born in one day?
Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment?
For nas soon as Zion was in labor
she brought forth her children.
says the Lord;
“shall I, who cause to bring forth, shut the womb?”
says your God.
