1 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the
beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the
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.

SCIENCE AND HEALTH
9 As for sin and disease, Christian Science says, in the
language of the Master, “Follow me; and let the dead
bury their dead.” Let discord of every name and nature
