  2. (Proverbs 31:8) Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute.
  3. (Jeremiah 1:5) Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.
  4. (Psalm 22:10) On you was I cast from my birth, and from my mother's womb you have been my God.
  5. (Psalm 139:13) For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
  6. (Exodus 21:22-25)  When men strive together and hit a pregnant woman, so that her children come out, but there is no harm, the one who hit her shall surely be fined, as the woman's husband shall impose on him, and he shall pay as the judges determine. [23] But if there is harm, then you shall pay life for life, [24] eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, [25] burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
