When the time came for Rebekah to give birth, 1 there were 2 twins in her womb.
When it was time for her to give birth, there were twins in her womb.
My breath is repulsive 1 to my wife; I am loathsome 2 to my brothers. 3
The wealth that he consumed 1 he vomits up, God will make him throw it out 2 of his stomach.
For I am full of words, and the spirit within me 1 constrains me. 2
because it 1 did not shut the doors 2 of my mother’s womb on me, 3 nor did it hide trouble 4 from my eyes!
“Why did I not 2 die 3 at birth, 4 and why did I not expire as 5 I came out of the womb?
I should have been as though I had never existed; 1 I should have been carried right from the womb to the grave!
“Does a wise man answer with blustery knowledge, 1 or fill his belly 2 with the east wind? 3
They conceive 1 trouble and bring forth evil; their belly 2 prepares deception.”
For he knows no satisfaction in his appetite; 1 he does not let anything he desires 2 escape. 3
Did not the one who made me in the womb make them? 1 Did not the same one form us in the womb?
but from my youth I raised the orphan 1 like a father, and from my mother’s womb 2 I guided the widow! 3
Inside I am like wine which has no outlet, 1 like new wineskins 2 ready to burst!
From whose womb does the ice emerge, and the frost from the sky, 1 who gives birth to it,
Look 1 at its strength in its loins, and its power in the muscles of its belly.
I have been dependent on you since birth; 1 from the time I came out of my mother’s womb you have been my God. 2
For we lie in the dirt, with our bellies pressed to the ground. 1
The wicked turn aside from birth; 1 liars go astray as soon as they are born. 2
Yes, 1 sons 2 are a gift from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward.
