17 qLike as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery,
Is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs;
So have we been in thy sight, O Lord.
We have as it were brought forth wind;
We have not wrought any deliverance in the earth;
19 tThy dead men shall live,
Together with my dead body shall they arise.
And the earth shall cast out ggthe dead.
20 Come, my people, wenter thou into thy chambers,
And shut thy doors about thee:
zUntil the indignation be overpast.
21 aFor, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place
To bpunish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity:
The earth also shall disclose her †blood,
And cshall no more cover her slain.
