1 …the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying, 3 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; 4 Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. 5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. 6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: 9 For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with you. 12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.

10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee. 11 O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires. 13 And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children. 14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. 17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper;

SH Matt. 3:16 1st Jesus
16 …Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
SH Luke 6:27 1st I, 28, 29 (to 1st ;), 30 (to 1st ;), 31, 32 (to 1st ?), 33, 34 (to 1st ?), 35-38
27 …I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; 30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; 31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. 32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. 36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. 37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: 38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
SH Matt. 5:9 (to 1st :)

SH John 14:27

SH John 20:21 (to 1st :)
21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you:
SH 584:26-27
DOVE. A symbol of divine Science; purity and peace;
hope and faith.
SH 96:12-15, 21-7, 11-13
This material world is even now becoming the arena
for conflicting forces. On one side there will be discord
and dismay; on the other side there will be
Science and peace.
Mortal error will vanish in a moral chemicalization.
This mental fermentation has begun, and will continue
until all errors of belief yield to understanding. Belief is
changeable, but spiritual understanding is changeless.
As this consummation draws nearer, he who has
shaped his course in accordance with divine Science
will endure to the end. As material knowl-
edge diminishes and spiritual understanding
increases, real objects will be apprehended mentally
instead of materially.
During this final conflict, wicked minds will endeavor
to find means by which to accomplish more evil; but
those who discern Christian Science will hold crime in
check. They will aid in the ejection of error. They
will maintain law and order, and cheerfully await the
certainty of ultimate perfection.
In reality, the more closely error simulates truth and
so-called matter resembles its essence, mortal mind, the
more impotent error becomes as a belief.
“The darkest hour precedes the dawn.”
This material world is even now becoming the arena
for conflicting forces.
SH 139:9-14
Reforms have commonly been attended with
bloodshed and persecution, even when the end has been
brightness and peace; but the present new, yet old, re-
form in religious faith will teach men patiently and wisely
to stem the tide of sectarian bitterness, whenever it flows
SH 224:8-10
There should
be painless progress, attended by life and peace instead
of discord and death.
SH 306:25-29
Undisturbed amid the jarring testimony of the
material senses, Science, still enthroned, is unfolding
to mortals the immutable, harmonious, divine Principle,
– is unfolding Life and the universe, ever present and
SH 264:24-27
Spiritual living
and blessedness are the only evidences, by which we can
recognize true existence and feel the unspeakable peace
which comes from an all-absorbing spiritual love.
SH 214:32-1
Spirit’s senses are with-
out pain, and they are forever at peace.
SH 144:20-22
Truth, and
not corporeal will, is the divine power which says to
disease, “Peace, be still.
SH 265:1-15
Man is the off-
spring, not of the lowest, but of the highest qualities of
Mind. Man understands spiritual existence
in proportion as his treasures of Truth and
Love are enlarged. Mortals must gravitate Godward,
their affections and aims grow spiritual, – they must near
the broader interpretations of being, and gain some proper
sense of the infinite, – in order that sin and mortality
may be put off.
This scientific sense of being, forsaking matter for
Spirit, by no means suggests man’s absorption into Deity
and the loss of his identity, but confers upon man en-
larged individuality, a wider sphere of thought and action,
a more expansive love, a higher and more permanent
SH 506:10-12
Through divine Science, Spirit, God, unites under-
standing to eternal harmony. The calm and exalted
thought or spiritual apprehension is at peace.
