New International Version
It is decreed that Nineveh be exiled and carried away. Her female slaves moan like doves and beat on their breasts.

Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vines
I cried like a swift or thrush, I moaned like a mourning dove. My eyes grew weak as I looked to the heavens. I am being threatened; Lord, come to my aid!"
We all growl like bears; we moan mournfully like doves. We look for justice, but find none; for deliverance, but it is far away.
The fugitives who escape will flee to the mountains. Like doves of the valleys, they will all moan, each for their own sins.
The river gates are thrown open and the palace collapses.
