That our daughters may be as corner stones.....



  "Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
 My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me.
 Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!
Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.
 Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.
Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.
 Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children;
Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee.
 It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword.
 Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:
 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:
 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:
 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.
 Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the Lord."
Psalm 144

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
