Bible: Jer 4:30-31
4:30 And you, Zion, city doomed to destruction, 1
decking yourself out in jewels of gold,
and putting on eye shadow! 4
You are making yourself beautiful for nothing.
Your lovers spurn you.
They want to kill you. 5
4:31 In fact, 6 I hear a cry like that of a woman in labor,
a cry of anguish like that of a woman giving birth to her first baby.
It is the cry of Daughter Zion 7 gasping for breath,
My life is ebbing away before these murderers!”
