28b  Filiae Jerusalem, nolite flere super me, sed super vos ipsas flete et super filios vestros.
29  Quoniam ecce venient dies in quibus dicent: Beatae steriles, et ventres qui non genuerunt,
et ubera quae non lactaverunt.
30  Tunc incipient dicere montibus: Cadite super nos, et collibus: Operite nos.
31  Quia si in viridi ligno hoc faciunt, in arido quid fiet?

28b  Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
29  For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare,
and the breasts which never gave suck.
30  Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
31  For if they do these things in the green wood, what shall be done in the dry?
