Speaking with enemies in the Gate

“Behold! Sons are an inheritance of Jehovah; the fruit of the womb is its reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty one, so are the sons of the young. Blessed is the man who has filled his quiver with them; they shall not be ashamed, for they shall speak with their enemies in the gate” (Psalm 127:3-5).

In many people and many nations there is one murderous accord.
To kill and slaughter the infant fruit that they “cannot afford.”
Some so wickedly glib say, “babies must die for women’s lib.”
As one aptly put it, the babe’s execution is their revolution.

To specifically address the blessed man who trusts in the Son of Man.
He is blessed with a quiver-full of arrows — that is his family (clan).
It is always the hope and prayer that the arrows will never be bent.
And continue to glorify God the Father for God the Son who was sent.
May the fruit of the womb grow ever strong in the Lord, their pace never abate.
To DEFEND, not PRETEND the faith, while speaking with enemies in the gate.
