Discussion for 1 Kings 11:39

  • Declareit for verse 39
    The seed of David (JESUS the Christ) aflicted for our sins (Isaih 53). The Christ suffered unto death but not forever, because He rose up from the dead on the 3rd day. I will for this afflict the seed of David, but not forever. The New American Standard Version cannot be correct because it translate seed to descendants. It is not seeds but it is seed.
