Lit The fruit of your womb
Lit you put your hand to
Lit abundantly in the fruit of your womb
Lit The fruit of your womb
Lit you put your hand to
Or sword
Lit powder and
Lit day, and not for power your hand
Lit a nation strong of face
Lit eat the fruit of your womb
Lit you his eye will be evil
Lit wife of his bosom
