Many centuries later, Nebuchadnezzar will gather captives at Ramah, and take them all to Babylon. The voice of Rachel weeping in the wilderness echoes through the centuries from her tomb and weeps over her children. Jeremiah 31:15
Centuries later still, Israel will have another Son, who will be the Man of Sorrows. But His Father will say to Him, "Sit at my right hand." At his birth, Herod will "hear news from the North and from the East and slaughter many." Daniel 11:44 And Rachel will weep again for her children through the centuries.
