on which I was born!
The day when my mother bore me,
let it not be blessed!
who brought the news to my father, saying,
“A child is born to you, a son,”
making him very glad.
that the Lord overthrew without pity;
let him hear a cry in the morning
and an alarm at noon,
so my mother would have been my grave,
and her womb forever great.
to see toil and sorrow,
and spend my days in shame?
