I have a question concerning article 17 of the Canons of Dordt.

Quote
Article 17. Since we are to judge of the will of God from his Word, which testifies that the children of believers are holy, not by nature, but in virtue of the covenant of grace, in which they, together with the parents, are comprehended, godly parents have no reason to doubt of the election and salvation of their children, whom it pleaseth God to call out of this life in their infancy.


It appears that this is saying that the children who die in infancy of godly parents by implication are elect and saved.

Do I understand this properly?
