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).
