Original text and translations

14  Zion spricht: 'Der Herr hat mich verlassen, der Herr hat mein vergessen.'
15  Kann auch ein Weib 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.
16  Siehe, in die Hände hab ich dich gezeichnet.
(Jesaja 49, 14 - 16)

English.png English translation

14  But Zion said: 'The Lord hath forsaken me, and the 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, these may forget, yet will not I forget thee.
16  Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands.
(Isaiah 49, 14 - 16)

Latin.png Latin translation

14  Et dixit Sion: Dereliquit me Dominus, et Dominus oblitus est mei.
15  Numquid oblivisci potest mulier infantem suum,
ut non misereatur filio uteri sui?
Etsi illa oblita fuerit, ego tamen non obliviscar tui.
16  Ecce in manibus meis descripsi te.
(Jesaja 49, 14 - 16)
