Quotes to Consider:
Calvin on Psalm 139:17: "The Prophet has
properly placed this righteousness after goodness, as being the effect
of goodness. He also asserts that it extends to the children and
children’s children, according to these words in Deut. 7:9, ‘God
keepeth mercy to a thousand generations.’ It is a singular proof of
His love that He not only receives each of us individually into His
favour, but also herein associates with us our offspring, as it were
by hereditary right, that they may be partakers of the same adoption.
How shall He cast us off, who, in receiving our children and
children’s children into His protection, shows to us in their persons
how precious our salvation is in his sight?"
Calvin: "He who is envious of another will have
the greatest difficulty in keeping out of some kind of trouble or
quarrel with him" (Sermons on II Samuel, p. 125).
