Isaiah 66:8

Context
NET ©

Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen this? Can a country 1  be brought forth in one day? Can a nation be born in a single moment? Yet as soon as Zion goes into labor she gives birth to sons!

NIV ©

Who has ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labour than she gives birth to her children.

NASB ©

"Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once? As soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her sons.

NLT ©

Who has ever seen or heard of anything as strange as this? Has a nation ever been born in a single day? Has a country ever come forth in a mere moment? But by the time Jerusalem’s birth pains begin, the baby will be born; the nation will come forth.

MSG ©

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!

BBE ©

When has such a story come to men’s ears? who has seen such things? will a land come to birth in one day? will a nation be given birth in a minute? For when Zion’s pains came on her, she gave birth to her children straight away.

NRSV ©

Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be delivered in one moment? Yet as soon as Zion was in labor she delivered her children.

NKJV ©

Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, She gave birth to her children.


KJV
Who hath heard
<08085> (8804)
such a thing? who hath seen
<07200> (8804)
such things? Shall the earth
<0776>
be made to bring forth
<02342> (8714)
in one
<0259>
day
<03117>_?
[or] shall a nation
<01471>
be born
<03205> (8735)
at once
<06471>_?
for as soon as
<01571>
Zion
<06726>
travailed
<02342> (8804)_,
she brought forth
<03205> (8804)
her children
<01121>_.

<02088>
