They will (B)writhe like a woman in labor,
They will look at one another in astonishment,
Their faces aflame.

With his hands on his loins, (A)as a woman in childbirth?

Is there no king among you,
Or has your (B)counselor perished,
That agony has gripped you like a woman in childbirth?

(F)There the Lord will redeem you
From the hand of your enemies.
