Therefore will the Lord himself give you a sign: behold, this young woman shall conceive, and bear a son, and she shall call his name Immanuel, God with us.
Upon thee was I cast from my birth: from my mothers womb art thou my God.
Before yet I had formed thee in thy mothers body I knew thee; and before thou wast yet come forth out of the womb I sanctified thee: a prophet unto the nations did I ordain thee.
For this lad did I pray; and the Lord hath granted me my petition which I asked of him;
Yea, thou art he that took me from the womb: thou hast been my trust when I hung on my mothers breasts.
13 For thou possessest my reins: thou hast covered me in my mothers womb.
14 I will thank thee therefore, that I am so fearfully and wonderfully made: wonderful are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
15 My being was not concealed from thee, when I was made in secret, when I was so to say embroidered in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 My undeveloped substance did thy eyes see; and in thy book were all of them written downthe days which have been formed, while yet not one of them was here.
Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord; or shall I who cause to bring forth, now prevent it? saith thy God.
For thou hast caused me to rejoice, O Lord, through thy doing: because of the works of thy hands will I triumph.
By thee have I been supported from my birth: thou art he that took me out of my mothers womb: of thee is my praise continually.
Can a woman forget her sucking child, not to have mercy on the son of her body? yea, should these even forget, yet would I not forget thee.
Lo, children are an inheritance from the Lord: a reward is the fruit of the body.
Sing unto him, sing praises unto him: speak of all his wonderful works.
