A voice has come to my ears like the voice of a woman in birth-pains, the pain of one giving birth to her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, fighting for breath, stretching out her hands, saying, Now sorrow is mine! for my strength is gone from me before the takers of life.

NET © Notes

tn The particle כִּי (ki) is more likely asseverative here than causal.

tn Heb “Woe, now to me!” See the translator’s note on 4:13 for the usage of “Woe to…”
