b 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, Jer. xxxi. 33. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh, Ezek. xxxvi. 26. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not, Rom. vii. 18.

c But he said, Yea, rather blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it, Luke xi. 28. My foot hath held his steps: his way have I kept, and not declined. Neither have

gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food, Job xxiii. 11, 12. Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful : But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season: his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper, Psal. i. 1-3. Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee, cxix. 11. Therefore I love thy commandments above gold, yea, above fne gold. Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth

my soul keep them, 127–129. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me ; and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father; and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. Judas saith unto him (not Iscariot,) Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?
