9 Now why do you cry aloud? 1Is there no king in you? 2Has your counselor perished, that 3pain seized you like a woman in labor?
10 4Writhe and groan,a O daughter of Zion, like a woman in labor, for 5now you shall go out from the city and dwell in the open country; you 6shall go to Babylon. There you shall be rescued; 7there the LORD will redeem you from the hand of your enemies.
