  1. Psalm 132:11 Hebrew of your fruit of the womb

Now, therefore, thus you shall say to my servant David, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, (A)I took you from the pasture, from following the sheep, that you should be prince[a] over my people Israel. (B)And I have been with you wherever you went and have cut off all your enemies from before you. And I will make for you a great name, like the name of the great ones of the earth. 10 And I will appoint a place for my people Israel (C)and will plant them, so that they may dwell in their own place (D)and be disturbed no more. (E)And violent men shall afflict them no more, as formerly, 11 (F)from the time that I appointed judges over my people Israel. And (G)I will give you rest from all your enemies. Moreover, the Lord declares to you that (H)the Lord will make you a house. 12 (I)When your days are fulfilled and (J)you lie down with your fathers, (K)I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 (L)He shall build a house for my name, and (M)I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 (N)I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. When he commits iniquity, (O)I will discipline him with the rod of men, with the stripes of the sons of men, 15 (P)but my steadfast love will not depart from him, (Q)as I took it from Saul, whom I put away from before you. 16 (R)And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me.[b] (S)Your throne shall be established forever.’”

17 “For thus says the Lord: (A)David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel, 18 (B)and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man in my presence to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings, and to make sacrifices forever.”

19 The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah: 20 (C)“Thus says the Lord: (D)If you can break my covenant with the day and my covenant with the night, (E)so that day and night will not come at their appointed time, 21 (F)then also my covenant with David my servant may be broken, so that he shall not have a son to reign on his throne, and my covenant with the Levitical priests my ministers.
