Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them; . . .
Children raised in the nurture and admonition of the Lord are the joy and rejoicing of their parents. The olive tree produces fruit for about fifty years, then stops, but in its old age, little plants grow all around it, holding it up and producing fruit. Just like the young olives, children in the Bible lands are raised to support their parents in their old age. The man who has "a quiver full" of children that walk in the fear of the Lord is truly blessed.
