Psalms 48:5-65As soon as they saw it, they were astounded;
they were in panic; they took to flight.
6 a Trembling took hold of them there,
anguish b as of a woman in labor.
Isaiah 21:3-43Therefore my loins are filled with anguish;
c pangs have seized me,
like the pangs of a woman in labor;
I am bowed down so that I cannot hear;
I am dismayed so that I cannot see.
4My heart staggers; horror has appalled me;
d the twilight I longed for
has been turned for me into trembling.
Isaiah 26:1717 e Like a pregnant woman
who writhes and cries out in her pangs
when she is near to giving birth,
so were we because of you, O Lord;
Jeremiah 30:66Ask now, and see,
can a man bear a child?
f Why then do I see every man
with his hands on his stomach g like a woman in labor?
h Why has every face turned pale?
Jeremiah 50:4343 “The king of Babylon heard the report of them,
and his hands fell helpless;
anguish seized him,
pain as of a woman in labor.
Daniel 5:5-65 i Immediately j the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall of the king’s palace, opposite the lampstand. And the king saw k the hand as it wrote. 6 l Then the king’s color changed m and his thoughts alarmed him; n his limbs gave way, and o his knees knocked together.
1 Thessalonians 5:33While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then p sudden destruction will come upon them q as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
