'Writhed' in the Bible
Then Esther’s maidens and her eunuchs came and told her, and the queen writhed in great anguish. And she sent garments to clothe Mordecai that he might remove his sackcloth from him, but he did not accept them.
The waters saw you, God; the waters saw you and writhed. Indeed, the depths of the sea quaked.
We became pregnant, we writhed in pain;we gave birth to wind.We have won no victories on earth,and the earth’s inhabitants have not fallen.
For the inhabitants of Maroth writhed for good, because disaster has come down from Yahweh to the gate of Jerusalem.
