Adaptation of Jeremiah 31:7-9

Thus says Lady Wisdom:
Shout with joy for Sarah and Hagar,
For Keturah
For Leah, Rachel
For women valued and devalued,
For women cherished and abandoned
Exult with the women of the nations;
Proclaim your praise, your hope and say:
Lady Wisdom will deliver her daughters,
The remnant of Israel.
Behold, I will bring them back
From the land of the desert and the cold,
I will gather them from the ends of the world,
With the blind and the lame in their midst,
The mothers and those with child,
The young women and the old,
Women by birth and women by choice –
They shall return as an immense throng.
They departed in tears,
But I will console them and guide them;
I will lead them to brooks of water,
On a level road, so that none shall stumble.
For I am a mother to Eve,
Keturah the forgotten is my first-born.
