KJV Jeremiah 32:36 (to 1st Lord), 39-41
36 …thus saith the LORD,  39 …I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them: 40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. 41 Yea, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will plant them in this land assuredly with my whole heart and with my whole soul.
KJV Ps 91:1, 11

9 …behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 10 And with every living creature that is with you, 12 …for perpetual generations: 15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; 16 …the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
KJV Exodus 19:5, 6 (to 1st nation.)

KJV I Kings 8:22, 23, 54-61
22 And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven: 23 And he said, LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart: 54 And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven. 55 And he stood, and blessed all the congregation of Israel with a loud voice, saying, 56 Blessed be the LORD, …there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant. 57 The LORD our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us: 58 That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. 59 And let these my words, wherewith I have made supplication before the LORD, be nigh unto the LORD our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, … 60 That all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else. 61 Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.
KJV Ps 25:10
10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
KJV Ps 33:12
12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
KJV Ps 84:11 1st second the
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
KJV Isaiah 28:15-18 (to 1st stand;)
15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. 17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. 18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand;
KJV Jer 31:31-34
31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
KJV Jer 50:5 1st Come, 6
5 …Come, and let us join ourselves to the LORD in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten. 6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.
KJV I John 2:23, 24
23 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 24 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
KJV I John 3:2 (to 1st God,)
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
KJV Gal 3:26-29
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
KJV II Cor 6:16
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
KJV Heb 10:16
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
KJV Acts 13:32, 33 (to 1st again;)

KJV Acts 2:39
39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call.
KJV Matt 5:8
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

S&H 241:24
should strive to reach the Horeb height where God is re-
vealed; and the corner-stone of all spiritual building is
purity. The baptism of Spirit, washing the body of all
the impurities of flesh, signifies that the pure in heart
see God and are approaching spiritual Life and its
S&H 272:19-25
It is the spiritualization of thought and Christianization
of daily life, in contrast with the results of the ghastly farce
of material existence; it is chastity and purity,
in contrast with the downward tendencies
and earthward gravitation of sensualism and impurity,
which really attest the divine origin and operation of Chris-
tian Science.
S&H 99:23
The calm, strong currents of true spirituality, the
manifestations of which are health, purity, and self-
immolation, must deepen human experience, until the
beliefs of material existence are seen to be a bald imposi-
tion, and sin, disease, and death give everlasting place
to the scientific demonstration of divine Spirit and to
God’s spiritual, perfect man.
S&H 125:12-16
As human thought changes from one stage to an-
other of conscious pain and painlessness, sorrow and
joy, – from fear to hope and from faith to understand-
ing, – the visible manifestation will at last be man gov-
erned by Soul, not by material sense.
S&H 467:29-32
Reasoning from cause to effect in the Science of Mind,
we begin with Mind, which must be under-
stood through the idea which expresses it and
cannot be learned from its opposite, matter.
S&H 328:20-25, 27 only, 30-31
standing spiritual law and knowing that there is no mate-
rial law, Jesus said: “These signs shall follow them that
believe, . . . they shall take up serpents, and if they
drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them. They
shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Jesus’ promise is perpetual.
The purpose of his great life-work
extends through time and includes universal humanity.
S&H 313:24-26
He plunged beneath the material
surface of things, and found the spiritual
S&H 18:3-9
Jesus of Nazareth taught and demonstrated
man’s oneness with the Father, and for this we owe him
endless homage. His mission was both in-
dividual and collective. He did life’s work
aright not only in justice to himself, but in mercy to
mortals,- to show them how to do theirs, but not to do
it for them nor to relieve them of a single responsibility.
S&H 207:20-23
There is but one primal cause. Therefore there can
be no effect from any other cause, and there can be no
reality in aught which does not proceed from
this great and only cause.
S&H 262:30-32
Divine Mind is the only cause
or Principle of existence. Cause does not exist in matter,
in mortal mind, or in physical forms.
S&H 151:20-21, 26-28
Every function of the
real man is governed by the divine Mind.
All that really exists is the divine Mind and
its idea, and in this Mind the entire being is found har-
monious and eternal.
S&H 371:27-30
The necessity for uplifting the race is father to
the fact that Mind can do it; for Mind can impart
purity instead of impurity, strength instead of weak-
ness, and health instead of disease.
S&H 330:25
III. The notion that both evil and good are real is a
delusion of material sense, which Science annihilates.
Evil is nothing, no thing, mind, nor power.
As manifested by mankind it stands for a lie,
nothing claiming to be something, – for lust, dishonesty,
selfishness, envy, hypocrisy, slander, hate, theft, adultery,
murder, dementia, insanity, inanity, devil, hell, with all
the etceteras that word includes.
S&H 331:1-3, 11-13 (to ideas.), 20-22
IV. God is divine Life, and Life is no more confined
to the forms which reflect it than substance is in its
…nothing possesses reality nor existence
except the divine Mind and His ideas.
He is all-
inclusive, and is reflected by all that is real
and eternal and by nothing else.
S&H 303:25-30
God, without the image and likeness of Himself, would
be a nonentity, or Mind unexpressed. He would be
without a witness or proof of His own na-
ture. Spiritual man is the image or idea of
God, an idea which cannot be lost nor sep-
arated from its divine Principle.
S&H 275:10-17
To grasp the reality and order of being in its Science,
you must begin by reckoning God as the divine Principle
of all that really is. Spirit, Life, Truth, Love,
combine as one, – and are the Scriptural names
for God. All substance, intelligence, wisdom, being, im-
mortality, cause, and effect belong to God. These are
His attributes, the eternal manifestations of the infinite
divine Principle, Love.
S&H 304:9-14
This is the doctrine of Christian
Science: that divine Love cannot be deprived of its
manifestation, or object; that joy cannot be turned into
sorrow, for sorrow is not the master of joy; that good can
never produce evil; that matter can never produce mind
nor life result in death.
S&H 244:19
If man flickers out in death or springs from matter into
being, there must be an instant when God is without His
entire manifestation, – when there is no full reflection
of the infinite Mind.
S&H 497:24-27
6. And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for
that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus; to
do unto others as we would have them do unto us; and
to be merciful, just, and pure.
S&H 55:21-22
The promises will be ful-
