Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the LORD.
“Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God.
As you do not know what is the way of the wind,
Or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child,
So you do not know the works of God who makes everything.
O LORD, [Your daughter] rejoices in your strength.
How great is [her] joy in the victories you give!
You have granted [her] the desire of [her] heart
and have not withheld the request of [her] lips.
You welcomed [her] with rich blessings
and placed a crown of pure gold on [her] head.
[She] asked you for life, and you gave it to [her]—
length of days, for ever and ever.
Through the victories you gave, [her] glory is great;
you have bestowed on [her] splendor and majesty.
Surely you have granted [her] eternal blessings
and made [her] glad with the joy of your presence.
For [Your daughter] trusts in the LORD;
through the unfailing love of the Most High
[she] will not be shaken.
