We have heard a voice of trembling,

Wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, eas a woman in travail,

And fall faces are turned into paleness?

Alas! for gthat day is great, hso that none is like it:

It is even the time of Jacob’s trouble;

But he shall be saved out of it.

Jeremiah 30:5–7 — The New International Version (NIV)

“This is what the Lord says:

“ ‘Cries of fear are heard—

terror, not peace.

Ask and see:

Can a man bear children?

Then why do I see every strong man

with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor,

every face turned deathly pale?

How awful that day will be!

No other will be like it.

It will be a time of trouble for Jacob,

but he will be saved out of it.

with his hands on his stomach like a woman in labor?

Why has every face turned pale?

Alas! That day is so great

there is none like it;

it is a time of distress for Jacob;

yet he shall be saved out of it.

Jeremiah 30:5–7 — New Living Translation (NLT)

This is what the Lord says:

“I hear cries of fear;

there is terror and no peace.

Now let me ask you a question:

Do men give birth to babies?

Then why do they stand there, ashen-faced,

hands pressed against their sides

like a woman in labor?

In all history there has never been such a time of terror.

It will be a time of trouble for my people Israel.

Yet in the end they will be saved!

So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins

Like a woman in labor,

And all faces turned pale?

Alas! For that day is great,

So that none is like it;

And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble,

But he shall be saved out of it.

holding his stomach in pain like a woman having a baby?

Why is everyone’s face turning white like a dead man’s face?

This will be a terrible day!

There will never be another time like this.

This is a time of great trouble for the people of Jacob,

but they will be saved from it.”
