14 ZJon spricht / Der HERR hat mich verlassen /
der HErr hat mein vergessen.
15 Kan auch ein leiblich Mutter jres Kinds vergessen /
das sie sich nicht erbarme vber den Son jres Leibes?
Vnd ob sie desselbigen würd vergessen /
So wil ich doch dein nimmermehr vergessen.
16 Sihe / in meine Hände hab ich dich gezeichnet /
(Jesaja 49, 14 - 16a)

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)

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)
