Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that you should say unto me,
Carry them in your bosom, as a nurse bears the nursing child,
unto the land which you swore to give unto their fathers?
Read Chapter 11

Nurse. We often read of men nursing and watching over others. (4 Kings x. 5; Esther ii. 11.) Thus kings shall nurse the Church, Isaias xlix. 23. (Calmet)
All who have authority should treat their subjects with love. (Menochius)
