"Then you shall say to Pharaoh, 'Thus says the LORD, "Israel is My son, My firstborn.
"Water will flow from his buckets, And his seed will be by many waters, And his king shall be higher than Agag, And his kingdom shall be exalted.
2 Samuel 7:14
"I will be a father to him and he will be a son to Me; when he commits iniquity, I will correct him with the rod of men and the strokes of the sons of men,
