2 A harsh vision has been told to me:
The treacherous one is acting treacherously,
And the destroyer is destroying.
Go up, O Eʹlam! Lay siege, O Meʹdi·a!+
I will put an end to all the sighing she caused.+
Convulsions have seized me,
Like those of a woman giving birth.
I am too distressed to hear;
I am too disturbed to see.
