16:20  amen amen dico vobis quia plorabitis et flebitis vos mundus autem gaudebit vos autem contristabimini sed tristitia vestra vertetur in gaudium
16:21a  mulier cum parit tristitiam habet quia venit hora eius
cum autem peperit puerum iam non meminit pressurae propter gaudium

16:20  Amen, amen, I say to you, that you shall lament and weep, but the world shall rejoice: and you shall be made sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned
into joy.
16:21a  A woman, when she is in labour, hath sorrow, because her hour is come;
but when she hath brought forth the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy.
