An Everlasting Covenant

Isaiah 54:10, 55:3, 59:21

The Biblical text from the NRSV is always found in the first column.

The reflection by Fr. Dennis Chriszt, CPPS is always found in the second column.

For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the LORD, who has compassion on you.


Incline your ear, and come to me; listen, so that you may live. I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.


And as for me, this is my covenant with them, says the Lord: my spirit that is upon you, and my words that I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, or out of the mouths of your children, or out of the mouths of your children's children, says the Lord, from now on and forever.

God’s promise is forever. God does not set limits o the covenant. There is no end date. There are no conditions under which the covenant will be revoked. Earlier covenants had such conditions, but Isaiah proclaims that the covenant with God is irrevocable.
