"My anguish, my anguish! I writhe in pain. Oh, the aching of my heart! My heart pounds within me; I cannot keep silent. For I hear the sound of the trumpet, the alarm for war.
Starting today I will begin to instill fear and terror of you on the part of every nation under heaven who hears reports about you. They'll tremble in anguish before you.'"
1 Samuel 1:16

"If only my grief could be weighed; or my calamity piled together on a balance scale!
"In addition, I won't keep my opinion to myself; I'll speak from my distressed spirit; I'll complain with my bitter soul.
And my soul is deeply distressed. But you, LORD, how long do I wait?
The troubles of my heart have increased; bring me out of my distress!
I will rejoice and be glad in your gracious love, for you see my affliction and take note that my soul is distressed.
I am weak and utterly crushed; I cry out in distress because of my heart's anguish.
My heart is trembling within me, and the terrors of death have assaulted me.
My servants will sing in gladness of heart, but you'll cry for help from anguish of heart, and you'll howl from brokenness of spirit.
Then he told them, "I'm so deeply grieved that I feel I'm about to die. Wait here and stay awake with me."

In his anguish he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat became like large drops of blood falling on the ground.
I have deep sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart,
2 Corinthians 2:4
I wrote to you out of great sorrow and anguish of heart along with many tears not to make you sad but to let you know how much love I have for you.
