And it shall be, when they say unto thee, Why criest thou? that thou shalt answer, For the tidings that come; and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint; and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it comes and shall be brought to pass, said the Lord GOD.
We have heard the fame thereof; our hands wax feeble; anguish has taken hold of us, and pain as of a woman in travail.
Therefore all hands shall be faint, and every heart of man shall melt:
Can thine heart endure, or can thine hands be strong in the days that I shall deal with thee? I the LORD have spoken it and will do it.
