Isaiah 66:7-9

7-9"Before she went into labor,

she had the baby.

Before the birth pangs hit,

she delivered a son.

Has anyone ever heard of such a thing?

Has anyone seen anything like this?

A country born in a day?

A nation born in a flash?

But Zion was barely in labor

when she had her babies!

Do I open the womb

and not deliver the baby?

Do I, the One who delivers babies,

shut the womb?

10-11"Rejoice, Jerusalem,

and all who love her, celebrate!

And all you who have shed tears over her,

join in the happy singing.

You newborns can satisfy yourselves

at her nurturing breasts.

Yes, delight yourselves and drink your fill

at her ample bosom."
