"Immediately, Anna cried out mournfully, saying to herself,

'Oh me, who gave birth to me? What womb caused me to grow? For I was born cursed in front of the children of Israel. I am reviled and they treat me with contempt and cast me out of the temple of the Lord my God.

Oh me, what am I like? I am not like the birds of the sky, for the birds of the sky are fruitful before you, Lord.

Oh me, what am I like? I am not like the domestic animals, for the domestic animals are fruitful before you, Lord.

Oh me, what am I like? I am not like the wild animals of the earth, for the wild animals of the earth are fruitful before you, Lord.

Oh me, what am I like? I am not like these waters, for these waters are fruitful before you, Lord.

Oh me, what am I like? I am not like this earth, for the earth produces its fruit in season and blesses you, Lord.'

Suddenly, an angel of the Lord stood in front of her, saying, 'Anna, Anna, the Lord God has heard your prayer. You will conceive and give birth and your child will be spoken of everywhere people live.'" - Infancy James 3:1-8, 4:1
