Quotes to Consider:
Matthew Poole on Psalm 127:3: "... although
God give children and other outward comforts to ungodly men in the way
of common providence, yet He gives them only to his people as favours,
and in the way of promise and covenant."
Henry Smith (1560-1591): "Well doth David
call children ‘arrows’: for if they be well bred, they shoot at their
parents’ enemies; and if they be evil bred, they shoot at their
Joseph Hall (1574-1656): "I remember a great
man coming into my house, at Waltham, and seeing all my children
standing in the order of their age and stature, said, ‘These are they
that make rich men poor.’ But he straight received this answer, ‘Nay,
my lord, these are they that make a poor man rich; for there is not
one of these whom we would part with for all your wealth.’"
John Calvin on Exodus 34:28: "If [Moses] had
only been kept a few days in the mount, his authority would not have
been ratified by so conspicuous a miracle; but the forty days obtained
full credit for his mission, so that the people might know that he was
sent by God; inasmuch as the endurance of a fast for so long a period
exceeded the capacity of human nature. Wherefore, in order that the
majesty of the Law might be indubitable, its minister was invested
with angelic glory; and hence he expressly records that ‘he did
neither eat bread, nor drink water,’ since it was requisite that he
should be distinguished from other mortals, in order that his official
character might be unquestionable."
