Your sons will take the place of your fathers; you will make them princes throughout the land.
In place of your fathers will be your sons; You shall make them princes in all the earth.
Your sons will become kings like their father. You will make them rulers over many lands.
"Set your mind now on sons--don't dote on father and grandfather. You'll set your sons up as princes all over the earth.
Your children will take the place of your fathers; so that you may make them rulers over all the earth.
In the place of ancestors you, O king, shall have sons; you will make them princes in all the earth.
Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons, Whom You shall make princes in all the earth.
