fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day
the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither.
2 In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and
set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a
city on the south.
3 And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose
appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in
his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate.
4 And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes,
and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall

Doth not he see my ways, and count all my steps?

Responsive Reading: Psalms 19:7-14

7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the
testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the
commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments
of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold:
sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them
there is great reward.
12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret
13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not
have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be
innocent from the great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be
acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.


(1) 1 Samuel 4:15-22
15 Now Eli was ninety and eight years old; and his eyes were dim,
that he could not see.
16 And the man said unto Eli, I am he that came out of the army,
and I fled to day out of the army. And he said, What is there done,
my son?
17 And the messenger answered and said, Israel is fled before the
Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the
people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and
the ark of God is taken.
18 And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God,
that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and
his neck brake, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And
he had judged Israel forty years.
19 And his daughter in law, Phinehas’ wife, was with child, near to
be delivered: and when she heard the tidings that the ark of God was
taken, and that her father in law and her husband were dead, she
bowed herself and travailed; for her pains came upon her.
20 And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said
unto her, Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not,
neither did she regard it.
21 And she named the child Ichabod, saying, The glory is departed
from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her
father in law and her husband.
22 And she said, The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of
God is taken.

(2) 2 corinthians 5:1-2
1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were
dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands,

2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with

that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they
shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and
the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
3 And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy,
then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him,
Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD:
and his father and his mother that begat him shall thrust him
through when he prophesieth.
4 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall
be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither
shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
5 But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man
taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine
hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the
house of my friends.
7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is
my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the
sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little

two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be

tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say,
It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not
known the Father, nor me.
4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come,
ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not
unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh
me, Whither goest thou?
6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath
filled your heart.
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that
I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto
you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of
righteousness, and of judgment:
9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no

(5) 2 corinthians 4:1-6
1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received
mercy, we faint not;
2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking
in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by
manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s
conscience in the sight of God.
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ,
who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and
ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath
shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the
glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

(6) acts 9:18-25
18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales:
and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was
Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus.
20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is
the Son of God.
21 But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he
that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came
hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the
chief priests?
22 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews
which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.
23 And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel
to kill him:
24 But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the
gates day and night to kill him.
25 Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the
wall in a basket.


(1) 360:13-21
Dear reader, which mind-picture or externalized thought
shall be real to you, – the material or the spiritual?
15 Both you cannot have. You are bringing out Choose ye
your own ideal. This ideal is either temporal to-day
or eternal. Either Spirit or matter is your model. If you
18 try to have two models, then you practically have none.
Like a pendulum in a clock, you will be thrown back and
forth, striking the ribs of matter and swinging between the
21 real and the unreal.

(2) 403:14-25
You command the situation if you understand that
15 mortal existence is a state of self-deception and not the
truth of being. Mortal mind is constantly Error’s power
producing on mortal body the results of false imaginary
18 opinions; and it will continue to do so, until mortal
error is deprived of its imaginary powers by Truth,
which sweeps away the gossamer web of mortal illusion.
21 The most Christian state is one of rectitude and spir-
itual understanding, and this is best adapted for heal-
ing the sick. Never conjure up some new discovery from
24 dark forebodings regarding disease and then acquaint
your patient with it.

(3) 239:16-22
To ascertain our progress, we must learn where our
affections are placed and whom we acknowledge and
18 obey as God. If divine Love is becoming Standpoint
nearer, dearer, and more real to us, matter is revealed
then submitting to Spirit. The objects we pursue and
21 the spirit we manifest reveal our standpoint, and show
what we are winning.

(4) 483:13-21
After the author’s sacred discovery, she affixed the
name “Science” to Christianity, the name “error” to
15 corporeal sense, and the name “substance” to Terms
Mind. Science has called the world to battle adopted by
over this issue and its demonstration, which the author
18 heals the sick, destroys error, and reveals the universal
harmony. To those natural Christian Scientists, the an-
cient worthies, and to Christ Jesus, God certainly revealed
21 the spirit of Christian Science, if not the absolute letter.

Our Master said, “But the Comforter . . . shall
21 teach you all things.” When the Science of Christianity
appears, it will lead you into all truth. The New Testa-
Sermon on the Mount is the essence of this ment basis
24 Science, and the eternal life, not the death of Jesus, is
its outcome.

(6) 260:24-30
24 Selfishness and sensualism are educated in mortal
mind by the thoughts ever recurring to one’s self, by
conversation about the body, and by the expectation of
27 perpetual pleasure or pain from it; and this education
is at the expense of spiritual growth. If we array
thought in mortal vestures, it must lose its immortal
30 nature.
