'In Labor' in the Bible
Now why do you cry aloud? Is there no king among you? Has your counselor perished, that pains have taken you like a woman in labor?
Writhe and groan, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in labor. For now you will go forth from the city, and you will camp in the field; you will go to Babylon. There you will be rescued; there Yahweh will redeem you from the hand of your enemies.
