Topical Bible VersesPsalm 139:13-16
For you have possessed my reins: you have covered me in my mother's womb.Topicalbible.org
Before I formed you in the belly I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.
Listen, O isles, to me; and listen, you people, from far; The LORD has called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother has he made mention of my name.
For, see, as soon as the voice of your salutation sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb?
See, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
You shall not kill.
