14  Zion spricht: 'Der Herr hat mich verlassen, der Herr hat mein vergessen.'
15  Kann auch ein leiblich Mutter ihres Kindeleins vergessen, dass sie sich nicht erbarme über den Sohn ihres Leibes? Und ob sie desselbigen vergesse, so will ich doch dein nicht vergessen.
16a  Siehe, in die Hände hab ich dich gezeichnet.

14  But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me.
15  Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
16a  Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands.
