And in pain (kai basanizomenh). "And tormented" (present passive participle of basanizw, for which see already Revelation 9:5; Revelation 11:10), only here in N.T. in sense of childbirth.
To be delivered (tekein). Second aorist active infinitive of tiktw, to give birth, epexegetical use. Also in verse Revelation 12:4.
