Does אקים means "I will resurrect" or "I will raise up"? Are these terms synonyms? Consider this:

וְעָבְדוּ, אֵת יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיהֶם, וְאֵת דָּוִד מַלְכָּם, אֲשֶׁר אָקִים לָהֶם.

But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up (or I will resurrect?) unto them.

My question is whether or not Jeremiah 30:9 (quoted above) is talking about the possibility of resurrection of David Hamelech to be the King Moshiach (as Or HaChaim on Bereshis 49:11 suggests):

וי''א (סנהדרין צח:) דוד עצמו מלך המשיח דכתיב (יחזקאל ל''ז) ועבדי דוד מלך עליהם
